World of Asphalt, AGG1 Shows Achieve ‘Fastest 50’ Status Based on Size, Exhibitor Growth

The substantial growth in size and number of exhibitors by World of Asphalt and AGG1 in 2012 caught the eye of Trade Show Executive magazine, which selected the two co-located events for its “Fastest 50” awards list.

Trade Show Executive presents the awards to shows that demonstrate the most growth in net square feet, number of exhibitors and total attendance from the previous show. World of Asphalt and AGG1 were both honored for their increase in net square feet, and World of Asphalt also won for growth in number of exhibitors.

The co-located shows, held March 13-15, 2012 in Charlotte, North Carolina, covered a record 115,000-plus net square feet of exhibit space (10,684 square meters) – a 30-percent increase over the previous shows. Space was taken by a record 408 exhibitors.

Record attendance of more than 6,500 took in the 2012 World of Asphalt and AGG1 shows. Registrants came from all 50 states, all 10 Canadian provinces and more than 50 other countries worldwide.

Trade Show Executive will present one show in each category with a Grand Award during ceremonies scheduled for May 2013 in Chicago.
