Late last week it was confirmed that Informa Markets’ World of Concrete will be held in person, making it the first large-scale show to return to the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 8-10.

While the announcement still technically hinges on what the organization is calling “the imminent approval” of the Large Gathering Certification by the Department of Business and industry, officials are also calling the event the first large-scale trade show to return to the U.S. market since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Late last week it was confirmed that Informa Markets’ World of Concrete will be held in person, making it the first large-scale show to return to the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 8-10.

This was reportedly made possible by Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak’s decision to increase large gathering capacity to 50% as well as the partnership between the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority and Informa Markets.

The organizations do note though, that Nevada’s new directive requires meetings, trade show and entertainment venues to certify through the state’s Department of Business and Industry that they will follow the state’s health and safety requirements and protocols and adhere to the prevention principles that have remained consistent: maintain safe social distancing, wear face coverings and practice good hygiene and cleaning measures.

“Las Vegas has been the top convention and meetings destination for many years. We pride ourselves on providing the best facilities, the best service and now, the safest,” said Sisolak.

“We’ve been cautious, but very focused on reopening Las Vegas in the safest way possible for you, our treasured customers, our valued employees and our entire community. With great confidence in the efforts made by our resorts, convention centers and meeting hosts, I say... welcome back! The greatest place to do business in the world is even better.”

In October of last year, officials announced that WOC would be moved from January to June, which was reportedly the first reschedule in the event’s 46-year history.
