E&E Congress 2021 will be 'virtual'

Europe |

We are pleased to announce that the 7th Eurasphalt & Eurobitume (E&E) Congress, “Asphalt 4.0 for future mobility”, will be the most easily accessible E&E Congress to date, following the decision to adopt an exciting, innovative online format that opens up this industry-leading event to a wider geographic and profile of audience.

Eurobitume Director General Siobhan McKelvey explained: “This decision brings certainty that this unique event will go ahead in June 2021 despite the global health pandemic and the uncertainty this brings regarding what travel restrictions and physical distancing requirements will be in place by then”.

“Asphalt 4.0 for future mobility” will provide many benefits that embrace new working environments and allow participants to unlock new opportunities together. Individuals will be able to share knowledge, industry news, best practices and exchange experiences about the latest developments and future challenges facing the bitumen and asphalt industries.

Further details, including new registration and programme announcements, will be announced on the event website – www.eecongress2021.org - in the coming weeks.

Jointly organised by Eurobitume and EAPA, the European Asphalt Pavement Association, the 7th E&E Congress will include 273 technical papers, two poster sessions and 12 technical sessions (each with six speakers and live Q&As), addressing the following strategic themes:

  • Health and Safety
