Informa Markets' World of Concrete (WOC) will be the first large show to return to Las Vegas from June 8 to 10, 2021 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC). On the heels of Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak's decision to increase the capacity of large gatherings to 50 percent, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and Informa Markets, the destination's largest trade show organiser, are partnering to bring meetings and conventions back to Las Vegas.
Core to Informa Markets' return to the show floor is its commitment to safety, operation under the All Secure Guidelines. The LVCC has a similarly safety-focused approach, having been awarded the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR facility accreditation by ISSA.
„It's critical for us to collaborate with industry partners to ensure that our communities can re-connect in secure ways.“
"As we return to the in-person experiences our customers crave, it's critical for us to collaborate with industry partners to ensure that our communities can re-connect in meaningful and secure ways," said Kevin Thornton, VP, Operations at Informa Markets. "The LVCC is a state-of-the-art facility that prioritises safety and success with the same enthusiasm we do. Through our collective efforts, live events will be able to run safely, signalling a real economic restart for the many communities we serve, as well as the Las Vegas economy."
"We are thrilled to be welcoming World of Concrete exhibitors and attendees back to Las Vegas as our first major convention to return to our destination," said Steve Hill, president and CEO of the LVCVA. "We greatly value our long-standing partnership with Informa Markets and their shared commitment to health and safety protocols to ensure a safe, trusted and "Only Vegas" experience for their attendees."
Informa Markets has scheduled a number of events to take place in Las Vegas in the second half of the year 2021.press.lvcva.com/safe-and-successful-citywide-events-in-las-vegas
