The SpecMix Bricklayer 500, a masonry competition that takes place over the course of three days at the World of Concrete (WOC), is just one of the many exciting events that attendees can look forward to. This competition crowns the “world’s best mason” and offers cash prizes and a new truck as part of the celebration.
The WOC has been hosting its annual convention in Las Vegas for 50 years, making it one of the longest-running conventions in the industry. The event spans 700,000 square feet and has been labeled as the “ComicCon for concrete guys” by Kevin Thornton, an executive at the company that runs the convention. At WOC, attendees can explore cutting-edge equipment, high-tech materials, and new methods for all things related to concrete.
CBS News correspondent Conor Knighton offers a glimpse into this universe, providing an inside look at the excitement and innovation seen at the World of Concrete. Throughout the event, attendees have the opportunity to learn about new technologies, witness skilled craftsmanship, and engage in the competitive spirit of the industry.
