Makita joined over 50,000 concrete contractors and dealers in Las Vegas for the annual World of Concrete trade show in January, the industry's biggest annual event.
After threats of rain and high winds, the skies cleared and the show opened under brilliant Las Vegas sunshine. Attendance was strong as more concrete pro’s turned out compared to the 2011 event.
Makita was there with the Experience More rig and several tons of 4,000 PSI concrete. Attendees took the opportunity to try out Makita’s very latest solutions for the concrete trade, many of which were previewed at the show:
