8 • ROCK products • March 2019 IN THE KNOW 145 new to the shows that displayed their latest products and technologies for the aggregates, asphalt, pavement maintenance and traffic safety sectors. "Our customer base is here at AGG1 each year. It's about meeting custom- ers we have known a long time and building on those great relationships, and also meeting new customers and letting them know about what Cater- pillar has to offer. It's a critical event for us," said Tom Klister, Caterpillar global account executive. The shows offered more than 150 learning opportunities, anchored by NSSGA's AGG1 Academy and the National Asphalt Pavement Association's People, Plants and Paving Conference. "It's very important to see the latest tech- nology, keep up with it and come to this show to network and learn more about the aggregates industry," said Don Gengel- bach, equipment manager at Mulzer Crushed Stone in Tell City, Ind. "It's been a great show with a lot of interaction on the show floor and in the education sessions; this is where our industry comes together – competitors and peers, to prepare for future growth," said Kevin Kelly, president of Walsh & Kelly and World of Asphalt 2019 chair. "World of Asphalt has been a great show for us this year," said Daniel Friedman, director of marketing with Eagle Crusher. "We've seen a lot of attendees with posi- tive feelings for 2019 and beyond, growth with distributors to represent our prod- ucts worldwide as well as customers signing purchase orders for equipment." Ben Everett with About Asphalt out of New Zealand came to the show primarily for the education. "Even with many years in the asphalt industry, you have to stay up to date and relevant with your knowledge. Over time with knowledge gained and lessons learned, techniques evolve," said Ever- ett. "I attended three education sessions and they are world class in quality and delivery. The presenters were excellent and related to attendees in a very col- laborative way to get our attention.
