The 2013 seminars brought together nearly 150 producer members, contractor representatives and suppliers throughout the province along with MTO, municipal and consulting engineer representatives.
With more than 40 per cent of attendees being road owners and customers from MTO and municipal sectors, the Road Tour seminars provided a unique opportunity for members to maintain their competitive edge.
Members who attended this year's seminars networked with customers and participated in discussions about what is working, what needs improving and what is changing in design, materials and construction of asphalt paving.
