The Three Musketeers never worked in a quarry, but their familiar cry, “All for one, one for all,” can be modified to reflect the big event in the aggregates industry this year. Without question it is, “All for AGG1, AGG1 for All,” because there is something at the show for everyone.
AGG1 takes place March 19-21 in San Antonio. If you’ve never been to San Antonio, you are in for a treat. Whether it is the Riverwalk experience, The Alamo or the best in Southwestern cuisine, San Antonio has it all.
The show – which is co-located with World of Asphalt – is sold out, and that means more than 117,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space is going to be filled up waiting for you. Attendees will find the newest products and technologies on the show floor for the aggregates, asphalt, pavement-maintenance and traffic safety sectors.
This year’s AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo focuses exclusively on the aggregates industry as its leading exposition and education resource. AGG1 features comprehensive exhibits that showcase the latest technologies and innovations in aggregates-related equipment, products and services, as well as in-depth industry-focused educational programming.
New for the 2013 shows is a more flexible education ticket program that does not require attendees to pre-register for specific sessions in the AGG1 Academy and People, Plants and Paving Training Program. Tickets purchased can be used for any session offered.
The AGG1 Academy will offer aggregates-related sessions for aggregates producers, their suppliers and, often, their customers
in four “schools”:
Operations and Production.
Automation, Technology and Software.
Environment, Safety and Health.
If you would like a quarry visit, an AGG1 Operational Tour of the CEMEX Balcones Quarry and Cement Plant will highlight this top-producing quarry’s commitment to sustainability, biodiversity and energy efficiency, and its efforts to improve energy efficiency and responsibly manage the lands within and around its operation.
AGG1 certainly has something for everyone. I encourage you to take advantage of it.
