Despite the struggling economy, interest in decorative concrete remains high. More than 12,000 people visited the Artistry in Decorative Concrete demonstrations at World of Concrete this year, a 60% increase over 2009. Contractors, engineers, architects, and others are fascinated by concrete and what creative minds can do with it. Decorative concrete contractors from across the U.S. demonstrated the new directions that decorative concrete is taking.
