The 2006 World of Masonry/World of Concrete in Las Vegas, January 16 - 20, offers unlimited opportunities to expand attendees’ business expertise and knowledge through a wide-ranging seminar program, and see the latest product offering s from hundreds of companies. It also provides masons with the opportunity to match their work skills against the best the country has to offer during the 4th annual SPEC MIX Bricklayer 500 to determine the “Nation’s Best Bricklayer.”

The competition will pit 20 teams consisting of a journeyman mason and a tender with the goal of laying as many brick as possible in one hour. The judges check each mason’s wall for workmanship and production to determine who makes it to the winner’s circle. The teams will compete for approximately $20,000 in cash and prizes.
