The 2010 co-located AGG1 Aggregates Forum & Expo and World of Asphalt Show & Conference opened with tremendous enthusiasm and have already posted record-breaking numbers as of February 16, 2010 (second day of events):
- More than 6,000 registered for the shows
- More than 87,000 net square feet of exhibit space taken by more than 340 exhibitors
- More than 6,500 education session tickets purchased for the conferences, training programs and seminars being held with the two expositions.
The shows run February 15-18, 2010 at the Duke Energy Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio.
“There is a lot of positive energy on the show floor and in the education sessions, despite a still-fragile economy. And, there have been many favorable comments about the quality of the shows to facilitate networking and connect potential buyers and sellers,” noted Show Director Melissa Magestro.
“Attendees really value the opportunity for face-to-face dialog with colleagues from across North America and even internationally, and to examine the latest technologies in one place,” Magestro said.
“Even with the snowy conditions we’ve had here, industry professionals knew this was the place they needed to be to plan for the future – the equipment and products they’ll need and the education to maximize their productivity,” she added.
