World of Asphalt and the co-located AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo opens in less than one week.

From March 29 to 31, Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee hosts the first in-person gathering of Asphalt paving professionals in three years.

“This is the most important World of Asphalt in the 20-year history of the show,” said Brittany Weltcheff, show manager for World of Asphalt.

“After having to go virtual in 2021, our industry hasn’t been able to gather together, manufacturers and asphalt paving professionals, since 2019, and everyone we’re hearing from is excited to get to Nashville next week.”

Industry professionals, from field technicians to business owners, will be able to compare equipment and services from 400 different exhibitors, customize their own education schedule from 120 different sessions and talk business challenges with peers and manufacturers. One major networking opportunity is the Rock & Road Reception on Wednesday evening, where sponsoring exhibitors will offer refreshments at their booths.

“There’s no better place to get ahead in the asphalt paving industry than World of Asphalt, and the People, Plants & Paving conference,” said Dr. Audrey Copeland, president and CEO of NAPA, majority-owner of the show. “So often we hear from our members about how they learned something they’re now using from the last World of Asphalt, it really confirms the central role World of Asphalt plays to the asphalt paving world and all the men and women in it.”

To help attendees navigate the show, the World of Asphalt app is available from either the Apple App Store or Google Play. The app may be used to plan exhibitor visits, and educational sessions.
