World of Concrete 2021 has made the decision to reschedule the trade show from January to June.
WOC will now take place June 8 to 10, with education sessions scheduled for June 7 to 10, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
In a news release, organizers explained the decision to move the dates back several months was not easily reached, however, they feel it is the right choice for everyone involved.
“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 for 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, and 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, including top-notch exhibits, new product demos and exciting spectator events.”
World of Concrete 2021 will adapt the Informa AllSecure Plan at the event. AllSecure is Informa’s approach to ensuring high standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness and quality for operating events for all our exhibitors, attendees, speakers and press.
In addition to the safety protocols in place for World of Concrete 2021, the Las Vegas Convention Center has been awarded the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR facility accreditation by ISSA Worldwide Cleaning Industry Association.
The GBAC program is considered the gold standard for safe facilities, and was designed 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 more than 130,000 square metres of space to the existing 300,00 square metre campus. In addition to the exhibit hall, the expansion will feature an outdoor plaza, a grand atrium and state-of-the-art design and technology.
“We look forward to continuing our role in driving the industry forward, connecting communities and supporting businesses,” World of Concrete 2021 said in a news release. “We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas in June 2021. We will also continue to post updates on our website over the next few months.”
