Aggregates are often overlooked when we talk about the construction industry today. They are not appealing. They are not glamorous. They are just rocks after all.
That said, aggregates are — quite literally — the building blocks of our society.
World of Asphalt, an asphalt trade show and conference coming to Atlanta from March 9 to 11, 2021, is celebrating 20 years of bringing the asphalt industry together by honoring 20 asphalt companies with $500 toward attending the show.
"This is a significant milestone for World of Asphalt, and we want to recognize the asphalt companies that make World of Asphalt and AGG1 possible," said Show Manager Brittany Weltcheff.
The aggregates and asphalt industries were out in force at the record-setting World of Asphalt Show & Conference and AGG1 Academy & Expo, Feb. 12 to 14 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.
Attendance hit an all-time high with 10,063 registrations — a 28 percent increase over the 2018 show held in Houston.
For the first time, Liebherr USA, Co. Construction Equipment division will exhibit at World of Asphalt, booth #27135, displaying its high performance wheel loader.
Combining power, durability, efficiency and convenience with guaranteed fuel savings, the L 566 XPower wheel loader showing at World of Asphalt, features a 5.5 yd3 re-handling bucket, has an operating weight of 52,690 lbs.
The upcoming 2019 World of Asphalt Show & Conference is officially the largest World of Asphalt ever. The exhibition kicks off Feb. 12-14 in at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.
With the co-located AGG1 Academy & Expo - also a record-breaker, the shows offer attendees access to a combined 192,000-plus net square feet of exhibits from more than 440 exhibitors, including more than 110 new to the shows.
AGG1/World of Asphalt visitors will get a first look at McCloskey International's new products that are compact and highly mobile. The newest addition to the stacker range, the all-terrain ST80T with lift axle, will be front and center, showing off its ability to switch from tracked to wheel in minutes.
The record-breaking 2018 World of Asphalt Show & Conference and AGG1 Academy & Expo concluded a successful run, March 6-8, with a very positive atmosphere, as attendees and exhibitors conducted business and discussed issues affecting future growth, such as infrastructure funding.
