Just over a month has passed since we held World of Concrete 2008 and the extremely popular Artistry Demos, which showcased the latest developments in decorative concrete.

Building off the momentum generated at the Artistry Demos, the Decorative Concrete Council, a specialty council of the Society of Concrete Contractors is holding their Decorative Concrete Expo April 3-5 in Phoenix.

Scheduled during the event are a host of educational seminars, a number of decorative concrete demonstrations, and finally certification training and exams.

According to the ASCC, the event is an opportunity to learn more about the latest tips, techniques, materials and business opportunities in the decorative concrete industry. This expo is designed for concrete contractors, general contractors, architects, specifiers, engineers, producers and anyone else interested in decorative concrete. Based on the number of people I saw and spoke with at WOC's Artistry Demos, this event is a perfect compliment to continuing your decorative concrete education.

To find out more, visit our website www.concreteconstruction.net or visit ASCC's site at www.ascconline.org. I hope to see you there.
