June 20, 2017 – Promoting advanced technologies and applications, connecting upstream and downstream of industry chains and providing green and diverse solutions for the local commercial construction industry are the missions of the first World of Concrete Asia (WOCA).

World of Concrete originated in the U.S in 1975. The exhibition is rooted from Shanghai, China and has achieved great support from many industry associations. Ms. Yalin Qiao, Vice Secretary General of China Flooring Association (CFA) sincerely welcomed the local show being upgraded and re-concepted in collaboration with the leading international exhibition brand. She said, “Since first launched in 2004, China Floor Expo has been keeping its professional market place, providing high standard services to the flooring industry. The show has not only become a successful trade event, but also be the professional platform for local industry. The introduction of the WOC brand is further expanding the upper and lower reaches of the flooring-related industries and enterprises.

The first WOCA has already received great support from leading industry associations including China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, Building Materials Sub-council, China Flooring Association, China Construction Material Rental Contractor Association, Institute of Technology for Building Material Information of China, China Bulk Cement Association of Popularization & Development Pre-Mixed Mortar Specialty Commission, and the Concrete Admixture Branch of China Building Materials Federation Building Materials Academy.

Launching of aggregate zone in WOCA
Because concrete and cement companies are more and more involved with aggregate businesses, WOCA has reached strategic agreement with China Sandstone Aggregate Network to promote a specific area for aggregate exhibitors. This will provide more opportunities for the integration of concrete industry and aggregate industry.


Hua Li, the CEO of China Aggregates Net said that the promotion of an aggregate area in WOCA 2017 will provide a more convenient and effective platform for information exchange and resource integration among building material and concrete construction companies. In addition, it will offer more opportunities for local aggregate companies.

More innovation in concrete construction industries
New technologies, new applications and new policies issued by the government are released constantly and local concrete and construction companies need to keep up with the trends and new standards.

The first WOCA will present various new technologies and new products covering concrete production, construction application and maintenance. This exhibition aims to provide a platform for industry companies to display cutting-edge technologies and products as well as to communicate with professionals.

The exhibition space of the first World of Concrete Asia will be over 50,000 sqm, and at this moment, 70% of the stands has been booked. Industry leading companies have confirmed their participation, and educational programs will be announced shortly. WOCA will be the first exhibition of its kind to showcase the entire picture of concrete and construction industries in China and Asia, and help companies to explore the future developments with industry insiders.

The first World of Concrete Asia will be held December 4 to 6, 2017 at the Shanghai New International Expo Center. For more details, visit
