Argus Africa Roads Conference

Join influential decision makers from across bitumen and road construction supply chains

With 391 road projects in the pipeline, valued at $467.6bn, Africa represents one of the fastest-growing continents in the infrastructure development scenario. The region is evolving and emerging into a prominent bitumen market offering tremendous opportunities to bitumen refiners, suppliers, road construction companies and technology providers.

In light of this, the Argus Africa Roads conference aims to be a truly pan-African event that gives you strategic insights into the prospect of doing business across the region.

Register your interest to join influential decision makers from road construction groups, road authorities. bitumen producers, traders and innovative service providers for two days of critical debate and networking in a relaxed and convivial setting.

With all eyes focused on the road construction projects, this is your chance to discuss the upcoming road construction and rehabilitation projects and their impact on bitumen demand, storage and logistics capacity, pricing issues and developments in the new IMO 2020 era that will have kicked in by next spring.

The event has been priced competitively to encourage greater industry participation and to provide a greater opportunity to network with a large number of bitumen suppliers, buyers and road construction companies.
