The National Concrete Masonry Association and the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute will join the National Precast Concrete Association and Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute at The Precast Show 2022, March 3-5 in Kansas City, Mo. With more than 100,000 square feet of exhibitor space and attendance of 5,000, The Precast Show is the largest precast-specific trade gathering in North America and, organizers notes, “the one place to find the most important suppliers and foremost equipment experts under one roof.”
“The Precast Show is the premier event within the concrete products industry,” says NCMA Chairman of the Board Rocky Jenkins (Cemex USA, Houston). “Our members will benefit greatly from the integration of ICON Expo into this event, as will the companies that supply our members, through increased exposure and the opportunity to come together with so many others across the industry.”
“This decision to renew our relationship underscores our shared interests in the industry and joint efforts to promote the use of precast concrete, concrete masonry and hardscape products across America,” adds NPCA Chairman Ron Sparks (National Precast, Vancouver, Wash.)
“With the introduction of the American Jobs Plan, we hopefully are entering a time of national investment in infrastructure that hasn’t been seen since the Interstate Highway System was launched in the 1950s under President Eisenhower,” notes NPCA President Fred Grubbe. “It never has been more important for precast concrete associations and their members to work together in order to achieve common goals.”
