The
2010 World of Asphalt and AGG1 shows provided attendees with the
opportunity for one on one discussion with specialists on
manufacturer’s equipment – in this case the Volvo PF6170 paver.

More than 340 exhibitors showcased the latest technologies, equipment and products for aggregates, asphalt, pavement maintenance and traffic safety professionals, while a record 6,600 education session tickets were purchased for the conferences, training programs and seminars held with the two shows.

Co-locating with AGG1 and World of Asphalt in 2010 were the Flexible Pavements of Ohio annual meeting and the Plantmix Asphalt Industry of Kentucky (PAIKY) Winter Training School.

Attendees also had access to the co-located National Traffic Management and Work Zone Safety Power Workshop, sponsored by the American Road and Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA); a NIOSH Seminar on Major Hazard Risk Assessment; a Project Management Essentials workshop; and an OSHA 10-hour course for construction workers certification program.

The shows are not held during CONEXPO-CON/AGG show years so in 2011, World of Asphalt and AGG1 exhibitors and products will be spotlighted at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, in March 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The co-located shows return in 2012, from March 12-15th in Charlotte, North Carolina.

AGG1 is owned by the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA); World of Asphalt is owned by the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) and Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). AEM is show producer.
