February 15, 2017  By AEM

February 15, 2017 – The World of Asphalt Show and Conference has been named one of the 50 fastest-growing shows across all industries in the U.S.

Trade Show Executive magazine presents “Fastest 50” awards to exhibitions that demonstrate the greatest percentage of growth show-to-show. World of Asphalt 2016 won for record gains in both attendance and exhibit space.

Planning is already underway for the next World of Asphalt Show and Conference, set for March 6 to 8, 2018 in Houston, Texas. Exhibit space sales are off to a great start. The education component will feature the show’s signature People, Plants and Paving Training Program, and show registration will open in October.

World of Asphalt features the latest equipment and product innovations as well as targeted best-practices education for the asphalt, pavement maintenance and traffic safety industries.


“The steady growth of World of Asphalt over the past several years and its record-breaking 2016 numbers are a direct result of being industry-led and collaboration with industry groups to provide real value to attendees, exhibitors and all who participate. We greatly appreciate such tremendous support,” said Rich Prausa, show manager of the 2016 World of Asphalt and membership manager for the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM).

World of Asphalt owners are National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) and AEM, who is also show producer. World of Asphalt is held annually except in CONEXPO-CON/AGG years (such as 2017), with that show spotlighting the exhibitors and products of World of Asphalt.
