Gallery: Sights from the AGG1 show floor

By |  April 2, 2024

The three-day AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo and World of Asphalt attracted a record 15,800 industry professionals to the Music City Center last week in Nashville. The Pit & Quarry staff spent all three days on the trade show floor attending press conferences, visiting exhibitors and connecting with readers at the magazine’s booth. Here’s a look at a few of the folks P&Q encountered at AGG1 2024.

This helps eliminate that.” Photo: P&Q Staff
