The 2021 IAT Annual Conference will, for the first time, be hosted by the Northern Ireland Branch. The theme of the Conference, 'Asphalt Vision' will give us the opportunity to look at what is happening within the Asphalt related sector across UK, Ireland and Europe.
Originally scheduled for 3-4 June 2020, the event was put back as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.
Papers will include an Airfield Case Study, tyre and surface interaction, industry developments in Europe and preparation for CAVs.
The range of international and local speakers, all well renowned in their own fields, and the wide-ranging presentations will be supplemented by a parallel trade exhibition where advances in products, equipment and services will be showcased by various companies from home and abroad.
The Conference will be held on Wednesday 24 March 2021, at Titanic Belfast. This prestigious venue is easily accessible by car or public transport and only 10 minutes from Belfast City Airport and 30 minutes from Belfast International Airport.
A pre-conference golf tournament will be held on Tuesday 23 March or non-golfers will have the option of a tour of the world's largest Titanic visitor experience, exploring the Titanic story in a fresh and insightful way.
Transport will be provided for both events on the Tuesday, ensuring that you will have time to prepare for the President's Dinner that evening.
In the evening the President's Dinner will be hosted by our President Tony Sewell, complete with pre-dinner drinks reception, presentation of awards and prizes (incl. golf), fantastic dinner and after dinner entertainment and, of course, an after dinner drink or two, if desired!
