The 2015 World of Asphalt and AGG1 exhibitions kicked off Tuesday, March 17 in Baltimore and had broken all previous attendance records by mid-day - as well as setting records for number exhibitors and exhibit space, and number education tickets purchased.

• More than 7,000 registered attendees - with more than 2 show days remaining

• More than 135,000 net square feet exhibit space taken by 450 exhibitors total - both shows set records

• More than 10,000 education session tickets purchased by attendees for the shows’ signature education programs.

There was plenty of enthusiasm and interaction on the show floor and in the education sessions. Attendees and exhibitors conducted business and discussed issues affecting future industry growth, such as highway funding.

“Exhibitors and attendees alike cite the value of face-to-face dialog with so many industry professionals and companies in one place, and the consistently high-quality environment of AGG1 and World of Asphalt,” stated Show Manager Rich Prausa.
