The World of Concrete has been postponed. The decision comes after discussions with key stakeholders and feedback from industry-leading concrete & masonry associations. They have made the proactive decision to reschedule WOC 2021 from January to June. It was not an easy decision to move the dates back several months. However, they felt it was the right choice for all involved. WOC will now take place June 8-10, educational offerings June 7-10, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“We have a commitment to our exhibitors and attendees to provide a valuable and productive face-to-face experience at WOC each year,” said Jackie James, Group Director, World of Concrete. “This is the first time in our 46-year history we have been faced with circumstances that have caused us to reschedule the event. We feel the new June dates will provide everyone with the necessary time to plan effectively. It also allows us to reimagine WOC for a different time of the year. Moving the event from Winter to late Spring this year will allow for additional outdoor activities everyone can enjoy in the great city of Las Vegas. This includes top-notch exhibits, new product demos, and exciting spectator events.”
World of Concrete will adapt the Informa AllSecure Plan at their June 2021 event. AllSecure is Informa’s approach to ensuring the highest standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness, and quality for operating events for all the exhibitors, attendees, speakers, and press.
The All New Las Vegas Convention Center
In addition to the safety protocols in place for WOC 2021, The Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC) has been awarded the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR facility accreditation by ISSA, the Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association. The GBAC program is the gold standard for safe facilities, and is in place to control the risks associated with infectious agents, including COVID-19.
World of Concrete is also one of the first large-scale events to occupy The Las Vegas Convention Center’s $980 million West Hall expansion in June, which will add 1.4 million square feet of space to the existing 3.2 million square foot campus. In addition to the exhibit hall, the expansion will feature a striking outdoor plaza. It also has a grand atrium and state-of-the-art design and technology.
They continue to look forward to continuing their role in driving the industry forward, connecting communities and supporting businesses. They look forward to seeing attendees and exhibitors alike in Las Vegas in June 2021. Find updates about World of Concrete on their website over the next few months.
