National Biodiesel Conference a certainty in shifting markets

By NBB Staff | September 11, 2014

One of the most predictable dynamics of the growing biodiesel industry has been unpredictability, a constant evolution of the market and its ever-transforming challenges. Managing through the ups and downs of business cycles and market changes is a part of every business. But many would argue the biodiesel industry has had more than its fair share. One thing that is certain, however, is that the National Biodiesel Conference & Expo is the place to be Jan. 19-22.

“I can’t tell you today with certainty exactly what our industry’s landscape will look like when we gather in Fort Worth in January, but what I do know is that this conference will be at the center of it all,” said Joe Jobe, CEO of the National Biodiesel Board. “It is the place to come hear directly from those at the top of our field where we are and where we might be going.”

The conference is specifically designed to gather biodiesel decision makers from throughout the U.S. and the world in one place for education, and to jumpstart the year’s business.

“Every year I am impressed, not just by the quality content our team assembles but also by the business I see everywhere,” said Jobe. “You can’t walk down a hall without seeing groups huddled together over deals that are surely defining the year ahead. It is the old-school town hall where all the serious actors come together to see and hear what the future will hold and to help shape it.”

Many uncertainties remain for the industry but the biodiesel conference is one constant. Year after year attendees, exhibitors and sponsors say that the investment of their time and money to participate return enormous value to their organizations. In fact, they say that it is the type of investment that they couldn’t afford not to make.

“There is no question this is the biodiesel event of the year,” Jobe added, “only a question of whether you will be there to seize the opportunities that it offers.”
