World of Asphalt and the AGG1 Academy & Expo, scheduled for March 9-11, 2021, in Atlanta, has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event’s co-owners announced.

“We are currently exploring the option of offering an all-digital education conference in 2021,” the organizers said in a Nov. 5 statement on the event website.

The next in-person World of Asphalt is scheduled for March 29-31, 2022, in Nashville, Tennessee. Attendee registration for the 2022 show in Nashville will open in fall of 2021. ARTBA is a regular supporter and participant at the event.

The show is co-owned by the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA), Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), and National Stone Sand & Gravel Association (NSSGA). See their full statement.
