This exhibition is an important meeting place for industry professionals wanting updates on the latest and most interesting technological and regulatory developments.
The show also gives industry professionals the chance to discuss foreign markets and future challenges. The event is aimed at engineers and professionals including those from contractors, public and private entities. The show also targets those involved in the management of road networks, as well as users of machinery, equipment, materials and technologies for the production of conglomerates.

This event will feature a strong conference programme, as in the past, which is being organised by SITEB. Issues covered will be technological efficiency and sustainability, cost optimisation, environmental impact and safety of workers, road performance standards and their application. In addition, new for 2012 will be the Road Safety conference, which will cover all aspects from the road safety technology to the design of intelligent infrastructure.
