Asphaltica 2021: attended event at Veronafiere 20-22 October
After postponement in 2020 in view of the health situation, Asphaltica returns to Veronafiere in 2021. And it does so with a safe attended event scheduled Wednesday 20 – Friday 22 October.
The reference show for road paving, safety and infrastructure technologies and solutions is organized by Veronafiere, in partnership with SITEB – Italian Roads and Bitumen, the Italian reference association in the sector. The supply chain associated with the world of bitumen, is worth over 2 billion euros in Italy, with 400 plant and 35,000 direct employees rising to 500,000 when allied sectors are also considered.
Asphaltica will be held in Hall 4 at the Veronafiere Exhibition Centre, with a large outdoor area for displays of large machinery and bituminous conglomerate production plant.
The top priority remains that of ensuring the safety of the event thanks to the safetybusiness protocol developed by Veronafiere and validated by the Italian Scientific Technical Committee, health authorities and AEFI, the Italian association of trade fair organizers.
“Together with SITEB and the main stakeholders in the supply chain,” explained Giovanni Mantovani, CEO of Veronafiere, “we have identified the end of October as a suitable time slot for holding Asphaltica in complete safety, as well as responding to the business needs of companies and operators and supporting the restart of the market.”
With this objective in mind, all health prevention measures have been upgraded within the Exhibition Centre with thermo-scanners at the entrances gates, management of entry and exit flows in and out of facilities, online ticketing, continuous sanitization of the venue and air conditioning systems, reorganization of catering services and anti-crowd control using intelligent cameras.
“The new edition of Asphaltica, after the postponement last year,” pointed out Michele Turrini, President of SITEB, “will take on a crucial role in relaunching a sector which in these difficult times has proven its resilience; today, our sector is called upon, with suitable support and strategic vision from the new government, to play a fundamental role in the safety and sustainability of the infrastructures of our country. We are working to prepare an edition that, while ensuring all safety protocols, will be a strategic occasion for meetings and comparisons for the entire road sector value chain, involving companies, public administrations and institutions.”
