2018 World of Concrete Highlights

January 30, 2018 Karli Langner

The Las Vegas Convention Center fills with excitement each year in January as World of Concrete, an international event dedicated to construction and masonry, pulls in to town. The event features more than 1,500 of the industry’s leading suppliers showcasing innovative new products and technologies to improve the industry; demonstrations and exhilarating competitions and events; and an exceptional education program. Here are a few highlights from this year’s event:

Command Alkon’s booth was buzzing over the debut of our new product, COMMANDassurance. This solution provides real-time visibility in to the material science of fresh concrete while in transit to a jobsite. Demonstrations for COMMANDassurance were given throughout the course of the week, offering attendees a more in-depth idea of how the product improves quality control and saves bottom line dollars. Demonstrations are still available if interested. Details can be found here.

The show offers several interactive events, such as “Decorative Concrete LIVE!” where artists create various applications and finishes in a home-like setting; “Nondestructive Testing,” a new event that covers the basic concrete science and methods for evaluating concrete structure; and the “CIM Silent & Live Auction” that provides funding for the Concrete Industry Management Program.

Command Alkon donated a COMMANDbatch system for the CIM Auction. We are long-time participants in the auction, and we appreciate the support of all who donated items and took part in the auction.

The World of Concrete Education Program was a hive of industry knowledge, offering 172 training sessions Monday through Friday. Sessions included everything from interactive workshops and specialized seminars to hands-on, skill-building sessions, with a goal of equipping personnel, project leaders, supervisors and owners with the latest knowledge in all facets of concrete and masonry.

Command Alkon is honored for the opportunity to exhibit our solutions at World of Concrete over the years. It is an industry-targeted event that is unlike any other; a place where industry counterparts can learn new trends and see how the market is evolving, helping us all to solve industry problems and work together to build better communities.

World of Concrete 2019 will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada from January 22-25.
