XBE at the 2023 NAPA Midyear Meeting - A Sneak Peek of My Keynote Presentation

We're only five days away from welcoming the asphalt community to the NAPA midyear conference, taking place in Kansas City, my adopted hometown. I am both excited and deeply honored to be delivering the keynote address to kick off Monday's main program during lunch.

The presentation, titled "AiSPHALT: The Transformative Power of Artificial Intelligence on the Asphalt Paving Industry," won't lack for trying! I'm not going to spoil the speech, but I can promise a warm welcome to Kansas City, an important and exciting industry announcement, striking visuals, and a deep dive into the intrinsic value of intelligence.

Moreover, I'll be providing a practical framework for assessing the profit potential of AI to the asphalt industry. We'll also discuss an action plan, tailored to various organizational levels, and, to cap it all off, a surprising twist ending.

If you're attending, I can't wait to connect. XBE is hosting exclusive breakfast and dinner meetups. If you'd like to join us, do let me know as soon as possible. Space is limited.

For those who cannot attend but have a keen interest in the topic, don't hesitate to reach out. I'd be more than happy to schedule a dedicated session with your team.

Lastly, whether or not you'll be attending, if you have any specific questions or topics you'd like me to address, please send them my way. At the moment, my presentation consists of 59 slides, so what's a few more.

Looking forward to seeing some of you in Kansas City and discussing the bright future of the industry.
