5th National Aggregates Congress (Santiago de Compostela - ESPAÑA) - 24 OCT/26 OCT 2018
Over the three days of the event, there were more than 100 presentations and round tables, at which renowned specialists in the industry covered a range of topics such as environmental management, railway ballast and relations with public authorities.
Concurrently, a commercial exhibition was held at the congress venue, where the TH Division stand attracted a great many visitors.
The company's participation in this fifth National Aggregates Congress was a great success, with visitor numbers well up on the previous edition. However, the general prospects for the recovery of the aggregates industry in Spain are still not great. All attendees agreed that both the volume of sales and the average price of aggregates remain very low. It was asserted that one of the main causes was instability in the public administration, which resulted in a lack of investment in public works.
For TH this event was a great opportunity to spend time with customers in a relaxed setting.
