The 2012 AGG1 and World of Asphalt expositions posted record numbers for attendee registrants as well as the amount of exhibit space, number of exhibitors and number of education session tickets sold, event organizers announced. The co-located shows were held March 13-15 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C.

Attendee registration numbers totaled more than 6,500 at show close. Registrants came from all 50 states, all 10 Canadian provinces and more than 50 other countries worldwide. More than 35 percent were company presidents/owners, vice presidents, general managers or CFOs, and all together more than 84 percent of registrants were in managerial roles.

The show floor covered a record 115,000-plus net sq. ft. of exhibit space – a 30 percent increase – taken by a record number of 408 exhibitors. Leading companies showcased their newest products and technologies aimed at the aggregates, asphalt, pavement maintenance and traffic safety industry sectors.

Education is a cornerstone of the shows, and 6,200-plus education session tickets were purchased by attendees for the shows’ signature learning programs: AGG1 Academy, Asphalt Pavement Conference and People, Plants and Paving Training Program.

More than 20 industry organizations were official supporters of AGG1 and World of Asphalt, and the shows are industry owned and operated. AGG1 is owned by NSSGA. World of Asphalt is owned by the National Asphalt Pavement Association, the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and NSSGA. AEM produces both shows.
