Kevin Kelly, World of Asphalt 2018 chair and president of Walsh & Kelly said of this year’s event, “This was one of our best events ever that delivered it all for industry professionals: product innovations, focused education and quality networking. It is always an incredible opportunity to come together and learn from each other, and we thank all participants for their continued support.”
This year’s World of Asphalt and AGG1 were co-located at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas and broke show floor records.
Spanning 174,000 net square feet, the combined event boasted more than 460 exhibitors. There were more than 160 new-to-the-show exhibitors who displayed the latest in technology and products for the aggregates, asphalt and pavement maintenance, and traffic safety industries.
Registered attendance exceeded 8,300 by the close of the shows and represented participants from all 50 states, the 10 Canadian provinces and 50 other countries.
CEMEX regional president and AGG1 Academy & Expo chair Joel Galassini commented, “These outstanding numbers emphasize the value of the convention and AGG1. This really is the best time for anyone in our industry to connect with peers, examine business issues that affect our operations and get energized for the future.”
Looking ahead to 2019
The next World of Asphalt Show & Conference and AGG1 Academy & Expo will be held Feb. 12-14, 2019, at the Indianapolis Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN. Exhibit space sales are open to companies, with space assigned on a first come, first served basis.
The shows are held annually except in CONEXPO-CON/AGG years, since that show spotlights the exhibitors and products of AGG1 and World of Asphalt.
