Momentum is beginning to build for the 2015 World of Asphalt and AGG1 exhibitions: exhibit space sales are tracking ahead of previous show cycles as leading companies sign on to display their newest equipment, products and technologies for the aggregates, asphalt, pavement maintenance and traffic safety sectors, according to the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM).
The shows are industry-owned and operated. AGG 1 is owned by The National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA), and World of Asphalt is owned by the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), NSSGA and AEM. AEM produces both shows.
Attendees will find new and expanded industry education sessions at teh shows. And, co-located industry meetings and support will boost show networking opportunities.
Show housing opened Sept. 8, and registration opens Nov. 10.
The co-located World of Asphalt Show & Conference and AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo will be held March 17-19, 2015, in Baltimore, at the Baltimore Convention Center.
Education is a cornerstone of the AGG1 and World of Asphalt show experience, and program planning is well underway with strong industry input.
The People, Plants and Paving Training Program and AGG1 Academy will both offer additional sessions, and NAPA and NSSGA are coordinating a joint track.
Also adding sessions is the Beyond Compliance conference focused on environment, health, and safety at asphalt plants and paving sites.
Attendees can also take advantage of the returning Safety in the Work Zone seminar organized by the American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA).
Full details will be available on the show websites.
