Concrete Facts: Visit Gates & Sons at World of Concrete 2022 in the LVCC, Jan. 18-20!
Jim Huscroft, President of Gates & Sons, Inc., joined Host Tyler Kern to discuss the upcoming World of Concrete Show set for January 18th through January 20th in Las Vegas.
Past shows have seen attendance of 80,000 with international attendees. Huscroft explained, “So to have it be our highlight of the year, like we said we get a pulse of the industry, we get the chance to talk to so many industry professionals, whether they are distributors of product, whether they are the contractor.”
One of the benefits Huscroft has witnessed from the show is hearing good things from many people. Every year, there are people who haven’t heard of Gates, and Huscroft views this as an opportunity. “What it really is is a joy to explain what our products do, the thoughtfulness and innovation that we try to put into everything, even just the history of the company, to have somebody spend time with you and let you walk them through your display,” he said.
Gates will include interactive displays showcasing all products including foundation, their wood-based forming system, a lot fast column clamp line, and a 30-inch scaffold bracket. “We don’t just sell a thing, we aren’t just handing pieces and parts over, our goal is to try and provide a solution to a contractor on a job site, and that partnership I think is something that is really valuable to our customers and it’s really part of our culture,” said Huscroft.
The World of Concrete Show will host a cornhole tournament co-sponsored with UFP Concrete Forming Solutions. on Wednesday, January 19th from 6 to 9pm at Planet Hollywood Hotel. Cash prizes, food, and drinks will be available. For more information, email Gates. You can als visit them in booth W1904 of West Hall at the show.
