Technology to dominate 2020 Madrid Congress

Plans are underway for the 7th E&E Congress, which is being held next year in Madrid between 12-14 May 2020. Organised by Eurobitume, one of the AIA’s parent organisations, and Eurasphalt, the biennial conference is recognised as the flagship industry conference for the bitumen and asphalt sectors in Europe.

The 2020 line-up includes keynote speakers, a full technical programme, interactive workshops, a large exhibition and poster sessions, as well as a congress dinner, all under the overarching theme Asphalt 4.0 for Future Mobility

The asphalt sector has a vital role to play in the on-going delivery of innovative and sustainable solutions for highway maintenance and construction. How best to achieve this with the continuing shift to ‘smart’ roads underpins the conference’s approach.

Siobhan McKelvey, Director General Eurobitume and a member of the E&E Conference organising committee, explains: “There is no doubt that future mobility scenarios being developed now will impact on our road infrastructure in the future. Asphalt, bitumen and other related industries need to be ready. Undoubtedly asphalt roads will remain of high importance in the future but, as the focus shifts to creating smart roads, we need to be ready to provide smart asphalt and bitumen.”
