NPE 2013 Kicks off Next Week in Nashville

When National Pavement Expo opens January 23 at the Nashville Convention Center it will feature a revamped trade show schedule, 37 new seminar topics, 15 new speakers, and a restructured conference pricing program that provides great flexibility for contractors, according to Amy Schwandt, show manager and publisher of Pavement Maintenance & Reconstruction.

“This is the paving and pavement maintenance industry’s ‘must-attend’ event, the only trade show and conference serving this industry,” Schwandt said. “Contractors who attend it regularly consistently attest to the fact that they bring home things – new equipment, a new material or material supplier, or things they learned in seminars – that have helped them both grow their business and make it more profitable.”

New Exhibit Floor Hours

The NPE 2013 exhibit floor will be open:

Wednesday, Jan. 23, 4:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Thursday, Jan. 24, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Friday, Jan. 25, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

There will be no exhibit hours Saturday morning, though 10 seminars will still be held Saturday as always.

New Discount Pricing Structure

Schwandt said that to make it easier for contractors to attend as many sessions as they like, NPE has restructured its pricing, reducing the cost of seminars the more seminars you take.

“In the past NPE had offered packages but not all contractors want to take 8 or 10 sessions,” Schwandt said. “The way it’s structured now contractors can take as many sessions as they like and receive a reduced rate the more sessions they take. We hope it will make it easier and more economical for contractors to attend all the sessions they want to.”
