More than 4,000 members of the precast concrete industry will gather March 3-5, 2022 for The Precast Show 2022. IT will take place at the Kansas City Convention Center. The Precast Show is the largest precast-specific trade show in North America. It is the one place you can find the industry’s most important suppliers and foremost equipment experts under one roof.
With the recent passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, it is estimated that between 20 and 25% of upcoming projects will include precast concrete elements. This includes water systems, wastewater systems and electric vehicle charging stations. It also includes electrical vaults and solar panel foundations. Additionally, it includes traditional infrastructure projects for highways, bridges, ports, airports, rails and transit systems.
Approximately 350 exhibiting companies will be joined by members of the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA), Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI), National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) and Interlocking Concrete Paving Institute on the more than 75,000-square-foot show space. Local Kansas City precast concrete producers and national construction leaders will be available for media
interviews, photos and video opportunities.
“We are excited to bring this year’s Precast Show to Kansas City, the center of America’s heartland,” NPCA President Fred Grubbe said. “With the signing of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, our nation is entering a long-overdue period of national infrastructure investment. With that as a backdrop, The Precast Show brings together manufacturers and suppliers as they begin rebuilding America. We look forward to seeing the new products, technical innovation and educational resources that will continue to move this industry forward.”
Trade show hours include:
- Thursday, March 3: 2 to 7 p.m.
- Friday, March 4: 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Saturday, March 5: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
