Aggregate producers can view nearly 50,000 square feet of aggregates exhibits and attend more than 50 education sessions at AGG1 this year.

It’s time to finalize your plans to attend AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo, which is, once again, co- located with the World of Asphalt. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, March 6, through Thursday, March 8, at Houston’s George R. Brown Convention Center.

AGG1 focuses exclusively on the aggregates industry and offers education sessions from industry experts in virtually all segments of the aggregates industry, including operations, health and safety, environmental, reclamation, automation, management, leadership, and sales and marketing. Exhibitors will display their equipment on nearly 50,000 square feet of exhibit space.

Networking opportunities with other construction materials producers abound. AGG1 is co-located with the World of Asphalt, while the NSSGA Annual Convention is aligned with the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association.

The AGG1 Academy & Expo will also highlight new products, technologies, and services in a wide range of categories including: conveyors, crushing, dredges, drilling and blasting, earth moving, heavy equipment, health and safety, plants, screening, site planning, trucking and hauling, vibratory equipment, and washing equipment.

Educational opportunities

AGG1 Academy will offer more than 50 expert-led educational sessions and seminars ranging from beginner classes that teach the basics to seminars that explore advanced concepts and technologies. The sessions are organized into four focus areas:

• Operations and Production;

• Automation, Technology, and Software;

• Environment, Safety, and Health.
