Argus Bitumen & Asphalt Live - Virtual Conference

A new bitumen and asphalt world – how will your company position itself within a shifting supply chain?

Global refinery shutdowns and reduced throughput is having a substantial impact on the bitumen and asphalt markets. Supply chains are shifting. Buying behaviours are changing. There’s a greater need for distribution hubs, a greater need to reach carbon-neutral targets, and there’s been a boost in investments in binders and polymers to improve road durability. There’s never been a more crucial time to understand where your opportunities lay, in a fast-changing and unpredictable environment.

Attend your digital event to meet with new suppliers and clients – and map out a plan for 2021 and beyond.
