This year's Most Innovative Products (MIP) contest at World of Concrete includes many examples of creative and innovative materials and equipment. These products run the gamut from big to small, from high-tech to low-tech, and from high-priced to low-priced, but all have two things in common. First, the products represent new ways to meet construction challenges. In addition, all of the companies are hoping you'll help decide which ones are this year's most innovative products.

To help navigate the 144 entries in this year's contest, the products are categorized by primary application. In this issue you'll find products related to concrete construction, specifically in the nine areas listed. Other products more specific to concrete production and masonry construction are grouped in five other categories that you can view online. For an overview that includes all the MIP entries, visit
