The National Stone, Sand, and Gravel Association is ready to rock Music City from March 29-31 as they host the AGG1 Aggregates Academy & Expo in downtown Nashville. As in previous years, AGG1 has partnered with World of Asphalt to deliver the year’s biggest double bill encompassing all things aggregates and asphalt.
From insightful and in-depth educational sessions to exhibits showcasing the industries’ latest groundbreaking technologies, products, and services to the largest social and networking event for those who know how to rock—here’s your comprehensive guide to making the most of the big bash in Nashville!
Learn something new at AGG1 Academy
It’s said that we learn something new every day. AGG1 Academy offers you a great opportunity to binge learn over the course of three days spread across four tracks all under one roof:
- Operations & Production—From blasting and dredging to crushing and screening, this track covers it all. Catch Martin Engineering’s own Jerad Heitzler speak about preventing conveyor belt mistracking on Wednesday at 10:00 am.
- Safety & Health—Learn when MSHA can stop work on a site and how training and development may be the best tactic to improve safety.
- Business & People Management—Team building, culture, financials, and community relations are amongst the topics that will be covered. Martin’s Jerad Heitzler will be on stage again at 2:00 pm on Wednesday to speak about leadership and listening.
- Environment & Sustainability—Learn how to produce sand without using water, how new technologies are making dredging intelligent, and much more.
Cruise the exhibit floor for industry innovation show & tell
373 of the aggregate industry’s premier equipment manufacturers and service providers will be on hand to answer questions and show off the latest innovations and offerings to improve your operation and support your business. Get a sneak peek at who you’ll find and what you’ll see with the show’s exhibitor listing.
I’ll be at Martin Engineering’s booth (#1510) showing off our groundbreaking N2® remote monitoring technology. N2® sensors turn your belt cleaners into smart belt cleaners and provide notifications on your phone when blades need to be retensioned or replaced, eliminating the need for inspections and ensuring maximum performance. Now that’s pretty smart! Get an exclusive preview here.
Grab a free beer & enjoy Music City
Cap off a day at the show on Wednesday with a cold beer from 4:00–5:00 pm on the exhibit floor at the Rock & Road Reception. Swing by the Martin booth and share your conveyor system and material flow challenges and we’ll offer our insight, a few helpful suggestions, and maybe even a bit of premium swag while enjoying a beer or two.
Beyond the convention center, be sure to take advantage of all that Nashville has to offer while you’re in town. Live music, tasty barbeque, hot chicken, cold beverages, and a celebration through every door. You’ll find me strolling down the Honky Tonk Highway after show hours. Send me an email and I’ll reply with some of my best suggestions to dine, drink, and dance in Music City!
