We kept our photographer Sean D. Daily busy at the World of Concrete 2013 conference last week. Here’s some of his favorite photos, from just before the convention to the very last day.
Remember to see the rest of the photos that we took at World of Concrete 2013 last Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Day Before World of Concrete 2013, Monday, Feb. 4
Desert Diamond Industries president Gionni Mione got his hands dirty setting up our booth at World of Concrete 2013. Here he’s seen arranging a display of tuck pointing blades.
Salesman Glen Hellebrand also helped set up our World of Concrete 2013 booth. That red banner, about the dangers of abrasive blades, was the most gruesome one to hang in our booth.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: Nothing you can do in situations like this but smile, smile, smile.
First Day of World of Concrete 2013, Tuesday, Feb. 5
The World of Concrete 2013 conference got off to a busy start. Here, Gionni Mione takes an order from a customer.
It wasn’t all business at World of Concrete 2013. Actually, it was all business, but that didn’t mean it had to be unpleasant, too. A customer managed to get Glen Hellebrand to smile here.
Conventions like World of Concrete 2013 are great places to people-watch as well as do business. This gentleman was one of the more distinctive people to visit our booth.

Second Day of World of Concrete 2013, Wednesday, Feb. 6
The second day of World of Concrete 2013 proved to be just as busy as the first. Incidentally, you can see a banner for the Ductile Iron Safety Blade in the center of this photo.
Things got so hectic in our booth that even our IT guy Jeremie McNeal (left) had to lend a hand with the selling.

Like we said, the World of Concrete 2013 conference was pretty enjoyable.
Third Day of World of Concrete 2013, Thursday, Feb. 7
Gionni Mione hawking Desert Diamond Industries’ products at World of Concrete 2013. Sometimes the old ways are the best.

Last Day of World of Concrete 2013, Friday, Feb. 8
World of Concrete 2013 wrapped up early on Friday. Attendance was light. Even so, Desert Diamond Industries managed to pack its booth more than once.
The last day of the conference was laidback and low-key. Salesman Mike Harris, center, drew a smile out of this customer.
