Top 10 Tips to Making the Most of Your World of Concrete 2020 Experience

1 Have a plan before arriving at World of Concrete

Before arriving in Las Vegas, identifying your goals for the show. Make a list of manufacturers and products you are interested in and all of the booths you want to visit. Put them in order of priority: Must Stop, Should Stop, Want To Stop. Also make a list of the spectator events and competitions, interactive workshops and industry hands-on training you will like to attend.

2 Arrive Well Rested

World of Concrete is 4 days of checking out exciting new products, cutting-edge technologies and the latest equipment. In addition there are exciting spectator events and competitions, and more than 150 educational sessions including luncheons, interactive workshops and industry hands-on training. Needless to say, there will be a lot to do and see. Even though the show is 4 days long, every second will count. Get plenty of rest before arriving in Las Vegas. Do not arrive worn down.

3 Pick up your badge as soon as possible

WOC Badges are not mailed. You will need to bring your emailed registration confirmation letter to onsite registration counters to have your badge printed. Save yourself some time and make sure you have your registration confirmation letter handy.

Guard your badge
Once you receive your badge, whatever you do, do not lose your WOC Badge!. There's a $95 badge replacement fee.

4 Wear the right attire and comfortable shoes

Business casual and dressing comfortably with comfortable shoes is key to an enjoyable World of Concrete. Construction gear or suit and tie is a No, No. Grab a light jacket as you head to the show. Besides getting a bit cold on the show floor, February in Las Vegas can get chilly in the evenings.

Bring your most comfortable shoes - The average World of Concrete attendee will clock in approximately 3 - 4 miles a day walking the exhibit space alone. Leave those construction booths at home and plan to arrive in Las Vegas with the most comfortable walking shoes you can get (Your feet will thank you later). Comfortable shoes will give you a chance to see most of what the show has to offer.

5 Network

World of Concrete is a great place to network with others. Expect a show floor packed with qualified industry-related attendees checking out the latest equipment, products, and technologies available. This creates the perfect opportunity to network. Many companies also host social hours, after-parties, or other events that give you face-to-face time with prospective clients. Exchange business cards as you network, so that you can keep in touch after the show.

6 Download the WOC 2020 Mobile App

The World of Concrete 2020 mobile app has lots of useful features including: interactive maps, exhibitor profiles, a badge scanner, Locate Me feature, and a list of don't-miss events and activities.

7 Allow extra time for everything

Plan ahead and allow extra time for everything. Expect long lines when entering exhibit venues, arriving at meetings, education programs and events. Also be prepared for long cab lines or rental car check-in lines.

8 Getting Around

There are lots of ways to get around Las Vegas, but it's worth mentioning that Shuttle bus service to/from the WOC show is FREE if you booked your hotel through World of Concrete Housing, otherwise a shuttle bus pass will cost $35 if you buy the pass before Dec. 11, 2019 and $45 after Dec. 11, 2019. If you prefer to ride the Las Vegas Monorail, there is exclusive discounts for World of Concrete 2020 attendees and exhibitors.

9 Take time to have some fun

Like any veteran vistor will tell you, no one comes to Vegas to spend time in their hotel room. Explore the city that never sleeps. Las Vegas is a premier hospitality destination with tons of things to do and see. Take a walk along the Strip, see a show or simply pig-out at a buffet. One or two of those is vital to having a positive show experience. Just remember, What happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas.

10 Follow up with your new contacts once you get back home

By Day 4 you'll discover you have collected a lot of business cards and promotional items. You work actually starts when you get back home. Follow up right away with your new contacts while all the information is fresh in your head. Do not wait a month or two to make contact.
