Celebrating the History of the Rocky Mountain Asphalt Conference & Equipment Show For the past 46 years, contractors, suppliers, governmental agency representatives, and consultants from the Rocky Mountain West have held an annual conference in Colorado to discuss new developments and quality advancements of asphalt pavements. Recognized now as the Rocky Mountain Asphalt Conference & Equipment Show, the event has a proud history and much has changed over the years. 

The conference was held  February 27 – March 1, 2019 at the Crowne Plaza DIA. The conference and equipment show was attended by up to 1500 persons over the 2 and 1/2 days. The conference started on Wednesday with all of the pre-show sessions including the annual asphalt symposium, equipment innovations and new in 2019 was a full day of Asphalt Plant productions session lead by Astec, Gencor and Stansteel. The general opening session was highlighted by Major Dan Rooney who gave us all chills and brought a few tears to many as well. Majr Rooney told us about the “Folds of Honor Foundation” (https://www.foldsofhonor.org/). Since 2007, the Folds of Honor has carried forth this singular, noble mission. To provide educational scholarships to spouses and children of America’s fallen and disabled service-members. Our motto says it best. Honor Their Sacrifice.  Educate Their Legacy.
