Registration Opens for RFA’s 25th Annual National Ethanol Conference
Registration is now open for the Renewable Fuels Association’s 25th annual National Ethanol Conference (NEC), to be held Feb. 10-12, 2020, in Houston. This year, with the theme “Focus Forward,” attendees will have the opportunity to look ahead to what the next quarter-century will bring for the U.S. ethanol industry, said RFA Board Chairman Neil Koehler, co-founder and CEO of Pacific Ethanol.
“For the past 25 years, this conference has been bringing the industry and its allies together to learn, share, network and celebrate our hard work,” Koehler said. “There will be so much to talk about in 2020, from presidential politics to increased calls for action on climate concerns. At the same time we’re talking about politics and policy, we’re also moving forward when it comes to building new markets, driving efficiency and advancing sustainability.”
The NEC is the nation’s most widely attended executive-level conference for the ethanol industry. At the 2019 NEC, about 1,000 industry leaders and professionals attended, representing 38 states and the District of Columbia. A strong international presence was also felt, with attendees from 16 countries.
The annual conference provides an unequaled opportunity to engage key decision makers and industry executives about the latest opportunities and challenges affecting the industry today. Speakers will address numerous topics, and RFA looks forward to offering attendees robust discussions around new uses and technologies, policy and politics, the market outlook, and the future vision for high-octane, low-carbon fuels.
The Renewable Fuels Association is the leading trade association for America’s ethanol industry. Its mission is to advance the development, production, and use of ethanol fuel by strengthening America’s ethanol industry and raising awareness about the benefits of renewable fuels.
