Crediting cautious construction market optimism among producers and their suppliers, NPCA reports a significant spike in floor traffic over prior year figures for the Precast Show, co-located with the 2012 Icon Expo in Orlando. The March 1–3 event marked official attendance of 3,692 and 1,000-plus units of training delivered—the highest for the show’s education component since 2008.

Along with stronger numbers for the gathering, NPCA has announced new dates for the Precast Show 2013: January 11–13 at the Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis. The move from an originally scheduled late-January window distances the Precast Show and co-located 2013 Icon Expo from the World of Concrete, February 5–8 in Las Vegas.
