Concrete Decor LIVE! Wows Canadian neighbors

Following the 2018 World of Concrete in Las Vegas, Concrete Decor magazine received a call from management at The Buildings Show in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, asking if it would be interested in hosting an event like Decorative Concrete LIVE! in Toronto inside the show’s World of Concrete pavilion.

Concrete Decor saw this opportunity as an effective way to support the industry’s expansion in the Canadian market. Adding to the enthusiasm it was also agreed that expanding Concrete Decor magazine’s reach with international service in Canada would stimulate further interest in decorative concrete. With spring and fall 2019 editions of Concrete Decor (Canada) now planned, show attendees and prospects will soon find a magazine in their mailbox that’s certain to change the way they look at concrete forever.

Show attendees were filled with questions about what was happening in the space. Their intrigue toward the products, our demonstrations on concrete and nonconcrete surfaces kept audiences returning throughout the three-day event. Truthfully speaking, the show went by too fast, but Concrete Decor LIVE! representatives did a good job of whetting appetites and pointing audiences in the direction of participating exhibitors who could answer more specific types of questions concerning existing projects.

The show draws a strong attendance of property management groups, architects, designers and builders who need information to make more informed decisions on a wide range of building projects. With well in excess of 12,000 attendees, Concrete Decor LIVE! was a welcome addition to the show, despite the short time we had to prepare for this debut event.

Based on positive feedback from attendees and exhibitors at the event, Concrete Decor is now planning its return to Toronto Dec. 4-6, 2019. To learn more about ways your expertise or products can become part of this event, please call Concrete Decor at (877) 935-8906.
