The annual World of Concrete construction equipment exhibition in Las Vegas, US, began today, with 50,000 visitors expected to attend over four days.
The show runs from 21 January to 24 January at the Las Vegas Convention Center, with an education programme which started on Monday 20 January.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the show, and organiser Hanley Wood said over 1,000 exhibitors were registered. The show occupies more than 500,000 ft2 (46452 m2) of indoor and outdoor exhibit space.
“World of Concrete 2014 will be an important event for the industry. Attendees can find everything they are looking for in one place—new and innovative products, leading suppliers, extensive education and training opportunities while networking with their peers and enjoying all that Las Vegas has to offer,” said World of Concrete director Jackie James.
