Rock Products to Debut New Conference

Rock Products is pleased to announce it will launch a new conference for the aggregates, cement and concrete industries. The Automation & Energy Conference (A+E) will take place Nov. 19-21, 2013, at the prestigious Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta. The event will be co-sponsored by sister publications Concrete Products and Cement Americas.

Automation, processing efficiency, energy and sustainability are playing increasingly critical roles in construction-materials production. A&E is a three-day event that will bring together construction-materials producers and industry manufacturers to share valuable information on the latest trends in materials processing, plant automation, energy management and sustainable production.

“Looking into the future, construction-materials producers will find themselves engaged more and more in how to use technology to both streamline operations for efficiency, and generate maximum energy savings,” said Rock Products Editor Mark S. Kuhar. “A+E will be designed to focus specifically and in great depth on those critical areas, and to offer attendees realistic, implementable ideas that they can take back to their operations and begin to put into action immediately.”

Rock Products’ parent company Mining Media International owns and operates a number of successful shows including, C&D World, Coal Handling and Storage, Haulage and Loading, and Longwall USA.
