World of Asphalt 2009 Show & Conference

This is probably one the more important meetings to attend this year if you are in the paving business. As you’ve probably heard, the stimulus bill has a “green” component attached to projects it posts for bid. This would imply “warm mix,” recycling and other technologies and techniques that are used to make asphalt production and laydown more environmentally friendly.

The combination of educational seminars, demonstration projects, product displays and networking should put attendance at the World of Asphalt on your “must do” list.
