NBB represents the biodiesel industry nationwide

By | May 13, 2011

One of the priorities of the National Biodiesel Board is to represent the biodiesel industry nationwide at industry events, and the first half of this year has been full of important meetings, conferences and trade shows. The events that NBB staff and contractors participate in include federal policy events, international feedstock conferences, petroleum industry association meetings, regional and national original equipment manufacturer (OEM) conferences, U.S. DOE Clean Cities events, local, regional and national sustainability events and much more.

The level of participation varies depending on the event but includes speaking roles on plenary session panels at national conferences, featured expert speakers for events and webinars, sponsor partnerships, media partnerships, trade show exhibits and more.

“NBB’s participation in the wide variety of conferences and events helps to get the biodiesel industry’s story out to a very diverse audience,” said Jessica Robinson, communications director for the NBB. “An individual biodiesel producer or distributor would have a very difficult time effectively reaching a national audience and running their business at the same time. That is where the trade association steps in to carry the message.”

NBB staff often partner with member companies when participating in events.

“We often have local members help out in a speaking role or at regional trade shows,” Robinson added. “This helps carry the message of the biodiesel industry as a whole, as well as gives them an opportunity to be active in their local communities.”

Notification of events and the opportunity to participate in regional and national events alongside the national industry trade association is one of the many services and opportunities NBB provides for members. Attending events and tradeshows is just one of the ways NBB represents the biodiesel industry and is a key part of an ongoing effort to educate fleet managers, decision makers and opinion leaders on the benefits of biodiesel.
