AGG1 breaks attendance, education ticket sales records

By |  March 23, 2015

The 2015 World of Asphalt and AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo broke a number of records and boasted the largest show floor yet.

The shows, which took place March 17-19 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Md., had more than 7,600 registered attendees from all 50 states, nine of the Canadian provinces and from more than 50 countries. There were 450 exhibitors at the event, and more than 10,000 education session tickets were sold.

“Exhibitors and attendees alike cited the value of face-to-face dialog with so many industry professionals and companies in one place, and the consistently high-quality environment of the shows,” says Rich Prausa, tradeshow manager at the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.

Attendees had the opportunity to attend any of the more than 110 education sessions, as well as attend a highway fund rally, which took place on the trade show floor March 18.

The 2016 World of Asphalt and AGG1 will be held March 22-24 in Nashville, Tenn. Future locations for the show include Houston (2018) and Indianapolis (2019).
