10th Argus Americas Asphalt Summit

The asphalt industry will continue to be an ever-changing market in 2017. Asphalt is now cheaper to produce, increasing demand in parts of the region and setting the stage for a trickledown effect at all parts of the industry, and that is only the beginning of potential roadblocks. Prices are decreasing along with local supplies as refiners move to running lighter crudes, and cokers run at capacity. Some coastal asphalt distributors are resorting to imports from overseas to make up the shortfall, and new players are entering the market hoping to take advantage of healthy arbitrages from the Mediterranean and southeast Asia. With all of these looming challenges and regulations, how can you best position your organization for success in 2017 and beyond?

Join over 200 industry colleagues at our 10th anniversary of the Argus Americas Asphalt Summit to discuss how to maximize profits as well as do business at this informative and interactive industry event. This three-day conference includes numerous opportunities for networking as well as informative thought leadership sessions presented by industry figures discussing key topics.
