Dallas, Texas – February 7, 2013 – Hanley Wood, LLC, owner and producer of the World of Concrete exhibition, announced today plans to launch World of Concrete India, which will debut in October 2013 at the HITEX Exhibition Centre in Hyderabad, India. With a booming construction industry, India has been in the process of modernizing its infrastructure including highways, bridges, airports, ports, metro and mono rails, power and projects. India serves as the perfect host for the well-known World of Concrete brand and the benefits it offers to exhibitors, attendees and the surrounding communities.
“We are very excited to bring the World of Concrete brand to India. Our partnership with the Indian Concrete Institute, the leading organization for all segments of cement and concrete in India will make this a must-attend event for the construction marketplace in this part of the world,” indicated Tom Cindric, Group Director, World of Concrete.
Hanley Wood will produce this event with Inter Ads Exhibitions, a leading organizer of international exhibitions and conferences in India.

This 4-day conference will focus on innovative technologies and solutions pertaining to the global construction marketplace.
