Two tradeshows recently teamed up and paved their way to record numbers for attendee registrations, exhibit space, exhibitors and education session tickets sold.

The World of Asphalt Show & Conference and AGG1 Aggregates Forum & Expo both took place from March 13 to 15 at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C.

There were more than 6,500 registered attendees at show close, including people from all across Canada and the U.S. and more than 50 other countries worldwide.

The show floor was a record 115,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space, filled up by 408 different exhibitors, who presented their latest products related to aggregates, asphalt, pavement maintenance and traffic safety.


Attendees were looking to learn at the event, purchasing a record 6,200 education session tickets for the shows’ signature programs: AGG1 Academy, Asphalt Pavement Conference and People, Plants and Paving Training Program.
