Michigan Aggregates Association's Annual Conference and Trade Show was held Feb. 6 and 7 at the Fire Keepers Casino in Battle Creek, Mich.
Educational sessions conducted during the two-day event focused on wide ranging topics, including such subjects as safety issues and regulations, business succession planning, the MDOT Prequalified Aggregates Supplier Program and the impact of the alcohol and opioid crises on the mining industry.
Attendees were able to meet with representatives from local equipment dealers, national manufacturers, and product and service providers at table-top exhibits during breaks between sessions. Additional opportunities to meet with the trade show exhibitors were provided by receptions capping off each day sponsored by AIS Construction Equipment and Michigan Cat on the first day and Alta Equipment Company on the second day of the event.
