Exhibit space sales for the co-located 2013 World of Asphalt and AGG1 expositions are tracking more than 15 percent ahead of the 2012 show for the same time in the show cycle, with about 11 months to go until opening day. Leading companies will be displaying their newest equipment, products and technologies for the aggregates, asphalt, pavement maintenance and traffic safety sectors.
The co-located World of Asphalt Show & Conference and AGG1 Aggregates Forum & Expo will be held March 19-21, 2013 in San Antonio, Texas at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
“Feedback has been overwhelmingly positive from our exhibitors and partner associations as we extend the momentum from our record-breaking 2012 events,” stated Show Manager Rich Prausa.
“The show floor will feature a broad array of the latest industry innovations; attendees will find what they need to get their jobs done with maximum efficiency and productivity,” he added.
Exhibit space rates have not increased since 2009 and are very competitive; a package plan of booth-related services such as material handling is included at no charge in the rates; and membership in the owner/producer trade associations provides a rate discount.
Show management offers exhibitors a variety of sponsorship options, including custom programs, to help companies more effectively achieve their marketing objectives; exhibitors also receive complimentary marketing materials to enhance their customer outreach.
Quality Buyers and a Reputation for Measureable Value

World of Asphalt and AGG1’s reputation of offering measureable value and their history as industry-run, customer-driven expositions are key factors in their continued success, added Prausa.
