Record-Breaking 2010 World of Asphalt and AGG1 Shows

The co-located 2010 World of Asphalt Show & Conference and AGG1 Aggregates Forum & Expo, which were held February 15-18, 2010 at the Duke Energy Center in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio, posted record numbers for registrants, amount of exhibit space taken and number of education session tickets purchased.

Final registration numbers topped a record-breaking 6200 for the two shows compared to 5795 for the 2009 events, and included registrants from all 50 states, all 10 Canadian provinces, and more than 30 other countries worldwide. More than 340 exhibitors showcased the latest technologies, equipment and products for aggregates, asphalt, pavement maintenance, and traffic safety professionals.

“Our industry has been hit hard by this recession but there is some optimism looking ahead. We received very favorable feedback about the shows' value in fostering these industry connections to help participants succeed,” stated show director Melissa Magestro.

AGG1 and World of Asphalt are industry-run shows, and industry support has been key to their success, explained Mrs. Magestro. "We understand that attendees and exhibitors need to carefully evaluate their budgets and time and make choices. Our industry partnerships and co-located events broaden the depth of the show experience for all participants and provide maximum return on investment," she added.

The shows are not held during CONEXPO-CON/AGG show years so in 2011, World of Asphalt and AGG1 exhibitors and products will be spotlighted at CONEXPO-CON/AGG, in March 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The co-located shows return in 2012 - March 12-15 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

AGG1 is owned by the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA); World of Asphalt is owned by the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) and Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). AEM is the show producer.
