Marketing Plan

As stated earlier, FHWA has initiated the ACPT Program to capture the best advanced technologies available or soon to be available for concrete pavements and deliver these technologies to highway agencies and the construction industry. This report has documented the availability of advanced concrete pavement technology products that show a high potential for improving the performance of concrete pavements, through improved design, material selection, construction practices, testing procedures, and repair and rehabilitation techniques.

The next phase in the ACPT Program initiative is to develop a marketing plan to deliver the promising ACPT products to the stakeholder. The marketing plan will need to consider the unique features and application of each product or series of products as well as stakeholder needs. The product delivery mechanism can include the following:

  1. Field demonstration projects and open houses.
  2. Test equipment loan program.
  3. Best practices workshops.
  4. Best practices topical presentations.
  5. Best practices topic-specific regional workshops and national conferences.
  6. Guides and training materials.
  7. Refined test protocols.
  8. Techbriefs and technical summaries.
  9. Communication (CD-based information delivery, Web site, ACPT product updates, product alerts).
  10. Webinars and other distance learning processes for adult education.
