NAPSA Members Receive FREE Admission to Pavement LIVE Expo and Events

After 10 years in Las Vegas, the National Pavement Expo West is getting a new name, a new location, and a new program. Renamed Pavement LIVE, the four-day event, held November 30 through December 3, is moving to San Diego’s Town and Country Resort & Conference Center. Along with the new location, the event is receiving a major overhaul in response to contractors’ changing needs. Live outdoor equipment demonstrations and an extra day of conferences round out the changes to the event.
Plans are underway to offer equipment demonstrations for sweeping, seal coating, crack sealing, infrared repair, and pavement marking. Schwandt said milling, paving, and patching demonstrations are also a possibility.

Adding an extra day to the event makes room for eight additional workshops and seminars, increasing the total number of educational sessions to 39. Conference topics center around enabling contractors to diversify services, learn advanced techniques, increase sales, and manage their business. In addition to the live demonstrations and conferences, top companies will display equipment, tools, products, and services in the exhibit hall.

One thing that isn’t changing with the overhaul of the event is the benefits offered to NAPSA members. Read on for a breakdown of NAPSA-related events at Pavement LIVE:
