Industry professionals in the aggregates, asphalt, highway/street, pavement maintenance and traffic safety sectors can attend the 2012 World of Asphalt Show & Conference March 13-15, 2012 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, North Carolina. The 2012 AGG1 Aggregates Forum & Expo will be held at the same place and time.
World of Asphalt will offer learning opportunities that provide operational and management strategies and techniques. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend sessions in the AGG1 Academy, the People, Plants and Paving Training Program and the Asphalt Pavement Alliance’s (APA) Asphalt Pavement Conference. Attendees will have access to all education programs at both World of Asphalt and AGG1, and education sessions offer CEU Continuing Education Credits or certificates of attendance to document Professional Development Hours.
“Industry professionals need to keep up to speed on the latest issues that can affect their businesses; our show education offers convenient and affordable access to content-rich presentations on best practices and innovative techniques,” show director Melissa Magestro stated.
The People, Plants and Paving Training Program is designed for paving contractors of all sizes as well as allied companies, with a focus on paving and plant operators, foremen, superintendents, project managers and owners. The latest methods in asphalt paving and production efficiencies will be covered in six program tracks: safety, pavement preservation, sustainability, paving, plant production and management and leadership skills.
World of Asphalt will include APA’s Asphalt Pavement Conference for paving professionals in the public and private sector involved in the design, construction and maintenance process. The day and a half conference will feature three main topic areas: Innovations in Paving, Pavement Preservation with Plant Mix and Keeping Competitive. APA designed its conference as an interactive roundtable format to help participants share ideas and experiences.
