Nearly 1,700 Attend PAVE/X - The Pavement Experience Inaugural Event

SAN ANTONIO, TX — IRONMARKETS has successfully launched PAVE/X - The Pavement Experience, with the event being held in San Antonio. Attendees from all over the United States gathered in Texas to see live outdoor demonstrations, learn about the latest equipment and innovations for their businesses on a sold out tradeshow floor, and engage with industry experts during 60-plus hours of educational conference programming.

"We had high hopes this event would be a success since it was built from years of experience and with the pride and passion my co-founder of the show, Jessica Lombardo, and I have for this great industry," PAVE/X Co-Founder Amy Schwandt said. "The results and support of the audience exceeded our expectations, with three days packed full of great content and networking events that were warmly received."

The inaugural PAVE/X event featured exhibits from over 70 manufacturers, as well as over nine hours of live outdoor equipment demonstrations.

"Outdoor equipment demonstrations were something we knew contractors were looking for from an event and buying experience," Lombardo said. "PAVE/X was thrilled to bring a fast-paced demonstration showcase for attendees to watch equipment at work and ask questions to help ease the decision-making process for them from the experts that know the equipment best."

PAVE/X featured outdoor demonstrations from: Astec, BOMAG, Cemen Tech, Cimline, Crafco, Dynapac, Etnyre, Graco, KM International, LeeBoy, Odra, Schwarze, SMITH, Weiler, and Wirtgen.

Throughout the course of the three days, attendees also had plenty to see inside on the tradeshow floor. The event started off with educational sessions and featured 60-plus hours of industry-specific content.

Preview night on the tradeshow floor held the 10th annual Pavement Award Ceremony, where the hard work and dedication of paving and pavement maintenance professionals was celebrated with awards in 10 categories.

Attendees had the opportunity to see innovations from the manufacturer partners that were on hand to showcase what they had to offer that would help attendees gain a competitive edge in their business.

"We were absolutely thrilled to bring a sold-out tradeshow floor to attendees of the inaugural PAVE/X," Schwandt said. "This is confirmation that the paving and pavement maintenance industries are thriving, and we are so excited to build upon year one's success in 2025."
