Attending World of Concrete 2019? Here’s the Tech You Need to Check Out

From game-changing innovations to a beer garden, here’s where you should spend your time.

From January 22-25, around 60,000 builders will gather at the Las Vegas Convention Center for one of construction’s largest and most influential events–World of Concrete 2019. Last year’s show was the largest in the event’s history, featuring more than 1,500 companies exhibiting across over 745,000 net square feet of space all dedicated to the commercial concrete and masonry construction industries.

World of Concrete 2019 is shaping up to be another massive event. If you’re planning on attending the show, creating your schedule can feel overwhelming. Admittedly, it’s close to impossible to cover all the hundreds of thousands of square feet in the exhibit space. However, as the concrete sector is changing at a rapid pace, it is essential to prioritize several technology and software vendors on your visit list to keep up with the current pace of the industry.

But which tech is going to be worth your valuable time to check out as an attendee? Below, here are some of the top technology booths that you need to catch at the show. And don’t forget to pack your most comfortable walking shoes.
