In addition to an exhibit hall, dozens of seminars, along with several workshops and panels, will educate in seven different concrete décor topics including coatings, countertops, hardscaping and vertical, overlays and toppings, polishing, staining and coloring, and stamping.

“We’ve changed up this year’s schedule to ensure that no educational offerings overlap with the expo’s hours,” said Bent Mikkelsen, publisher of Concrete Décor Magazine and the show's organizer.

“Contractors won’t have to choose how to divide their time between taking classes and visiting exhibits because they will be offered at different times.”

“In the even years, we’ll host a buying event that will strengthen and support vendor/distributor relations for decorative concrete products, nationally and internationally.”
