Hotel and TransportationHotel reservations are open
It’s not too early to make your hotel reservation at the Hilton Bayfront. Space is limited at the single/double rate of $189 plus tax. Book your room online or call 800-445-8667 and use the group code AMA.
Reserve a discounted airport shuttle
We are pleased to offer conference attendees a discount code for the Super Shuttle to and from Tampa International Airport (TPA). Reserve a shuttle that delivers you to the hotel’s front door using the discount code EP8N3.
We are working to bring together another broad-based group of presenters from government and industry to discuss the latest news and issues affecting the modified asphalt industry. (Read last year’s program for an idea of what our full event will look like.)
If you are associated with the asphalt industry in any way–buyer, owner, DOT or municipality official, contractor, producer, refiner, terminal operator or consulting engineer—you can’t afford to miss this meeting.
In addition, AMAP’s Education Committee will present an expanded Asphalt Seminar and Workshop prior to the start of the main conference. This highly regarded course will cover all aspects of modified asphalt technology: chemistry, types of modifiers, effects of modification, and testing, handling and construction techniques for asphalt mix, emulsions and preservation products. Attendees will receive an annotated workbook with slides and discussion.
Registration opens in late fall 2016. We look forward to seeing you!
Keynote SpeakerRobin Cole, a 12-year veteran linebacker for the Pittsburg Steelers, will present the keynote address at the 18th Annual AMAP Conference & Workshop. A first-team All-American at the University of New Mexico, Robin was the No. 1 First Round NFL draft pick of the Steelers in 1977 and was part of the famous Steel Curtain Defense.
Robin played on two winning Super Bowl teams, XIII and XIV, and was selected for the Pro Bowl in 1984. On a team loaded with linebacker talent, many of his peers consider him one of the best ever to pay the game.
Robin is an entrepreneur and trained at the Ford Motor Institute to be a dealer. In addition, he has served on several charitable boards, including the American Heart Association, the March of Dimes, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, and others.
Robin is a lifetime member of the NAACP and is the Founder and President of the Obediah Cole Foundation, named after his father. The mission of the Foundation is to save lives by educating people about prostate cancer, bringing awareness to prostate cancer and free PSA testing. Robin Cole is a prostate cancer survivor.
Come join us and hear Robin’s inspirational message about his time in the NFL, life and even his ties to the asphalt industry.
