Argus European Bitumen and Asphalt 2017

The annual meeting place for the bitumen and asphalt supply chain

The 8th Argus European Bitumen and Asphalt conference took place in Portugal and once again confirmed itself as the premier event for exploring developments in the bitumen industry. The event offered an engaging platform for the industry to understand the current supply and demand landscape, the impact of pricing on investment opportunities and how to reduce costs throughout the supply chain.

Key representatives from regional governments, bitumen and asphalt end-users and industry thought-leaders came together to discuss and shape the future of the international industry.
