World of Asphalt and AGG1 will be held March 13 to 15 at the Charlotte
Convention Center in Charlotte, N.C. The exhibitions are held
annually except in CONEXPO-CON/AGG years and target aggregates,
asphalt, pavement maintenance and traffic safety industry professionals.

Attendees will find a broader array of equipment, products and services
on the show floor, including an expanded emphasis on pavement
maintenance. Many returning companies have increased their space and
new-to-the show-companies are signing on to take advantage of this
quality venue to connect with customers. Companies range from
multinationals with multiple product lines to smaller firms with niche

Education is a hallmark of the shows, and attendees have convenient
access to more than 90 learning opportunities with the People, Plants
and Paving training program, the Asphalt Pavement Alliance’s Asphalt
Pavement Conference and the AGG1 Academy.

“Attendees tell us that seeing new products is the number-one reason
they attend, and they’ll be able to compare the latest technologies and
talk with technical experts,” show director Melissa Magestro said.
“Our robust education focuses on industry best practices and increases
the value quotient of the shows.”


More than 20 industry-related organizations are official supporters of
World of Asphalt and AGG1, and both shows are industry-owned and
operated. “This is where the industry gathers to network and gain the
essential product and operational knowledge they need to stay ahead in
these economic times,” Magestro added.

Advance registration is open with reduced exhibit entrance and education

World of Asphalt is owned by National Asphalt Pavement Association
(NAPA) with Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and National
Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA). AGG1 is owned by NSSGA. AEM
produces both shows.
