World of Concrete 2015

World of Concrete is the concrete industry’s largest event which happens annually in Las Vegas. It brings together manufacturers, suppliers, contractors, innovators and experts to deliver a show unlike any other across the globe.

Anyone who keeps up with us knows how much we love concrete. Naturally, this show had been on our radar for quite some time. Colby made the decision last fall to attend in February, and he brought Elias, our Landscape Construction Supervisor, with him. Lucky guys!

Here are some of the concrete products they saw in Vegas…

Colby also took advantage of the educational opportunities the show offers, and attended a class titled ‘Conquering Unexpected Cracking of Concrete Flatwork.’ During this seminar he built upon his knowledge regarding factors that can easily be managed to prevent most uncontrolled cracking.

All in all, this trip to Vegas – unlike most trips to Vegas – was an incredible learning experience. We look forward to our next trip to World of Concrete!
