GREATER IOWA ASPHALT CONFERENCE SEES RECORD CROWDS AND A “BLACK GOLD” RUSH

The 2017 Greater Iowa Asphalt conference saw record crowds again for the sixth straight year and an amazing agenda that left attendees with hard choices on which session to forgo.  Discovery TV “Gold Rush” star, Dave Turin, gave an inspiring Keynote address on “Finding Tomorrow’s Workers Today” and spent his spare time talking to the men and women of Iowa’s Asphalt Industry.  The GIAC Equipment Expo was another sell-out in 2017 with dealers from across the Midwest showing off the latest innovations in equipment and technology.  “I am amazed,” said Bill Rosener, Executive VP of APAI.  “Every time I think we have hit our zenith with this event, it blows by what we did the previous year.  This event is a success because of our partnerships with the Iowa DOT, Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP), Iowa State University Institute of Transportation, and the University of Iowa College of Engineering, and because the use of asphalt continues to gain momentum and popularity across the state.”
