17th AAPA International Flexible Pavements Conference 2017

‘Roads of the Future, Embracing Disruption’.

13th – 16th August  |  Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre

Continuing a long tradition of AAPA conferences going back to 1971, this 17th AAPA International Flexible Pavement Conference will again be the primary meeting of flexible pavement professionals in Australasia. The Plant and Equipment Exhibition and the information-packed technical program of the conference will attract representatives from state road agencies, local government, industry, and academic institutions from across the world.

The theme of the 17th AAPA International Flexible Pavements Conference is ‘Roads of the Future – Embracing Disruption.  Future change offers opportunities, challenges and excitement. The future of transport and the role that roads play in moving people and goods is facing unprecedented potential disruption. At the same time, the Roads of the Future are the key to creating the economic opportunities of tomorrow.

The aim is to help prepare the Australian flexible pavements sector for future challenges, by openly discussing the possible disruption that will come through new digital and physical environments and technologies. The main objective is to provide a platform for the Flexible Pavement Industry and its stakeholders, suppliers and partners to share, consider and plan for the impacts and changes and ensure the continued growth and success of our sector.
