Boasting the largest and most-varied exhibit floor in its 22-year history, the 2007 National Pavement Expo (NPE) in Nashville brought more than 2,100 paving and pavement maintenance contractors together for four days of intense industry interaction Jan. 31 through Feb. 3.
"These people come to work," said Loretta Miles, NPE show manager. "Attendance at our seminar program is just going through the roof, and the ratings our speakers are getting are just as high. Then they hit the floor and really invest the time with exhibitors to learn about the equipment they need to buy. It's a hard-working group.
"But Nashville being Nashville, and with all the hospitality suites our exhibitors host, we think they find some time to enjoy themselves as well."
