Full Details

The IAT Annual Conference will this year be jointly hosted by the IAT East and West Midlands Branch. The theme of the Conference is ‘How Technology can Improve the Asphalt Industry.’

While innovation and technology evolve on a daily basis within our industry, this conference will look at the benefits they produce for our people, clients, and long-term sustainability of the product and sector.

Keynote speaker for the Conference will be the LGTAG President, Amanda Richards, who will open the Conference ahead of notable speakers from organisations including National Highways, TRL, Tarmac and Wirtgen.

The conference has become a major highlight in the calendar following the success of past events in Belfast and Heathrow, with such positive and encouraging feedback from delegates, exhibitors, and speakers. We are delighted to have Amanda to give our keynote address this year, opening for an engaging panel of industry speakers and topics.

IAT are extremely grateful to this year’s headline sponsor, Breedon Group, who committed their support a few months ago having identified the Conference as a key event in the sector.
