2012 Biodiesel Conference & Expo returns to Orlando

By | January 12, 2011

With the 2011 National Biodiesel Conference & Expo underway, it is not  too early to start thinking about 2012.

The biodiesel industry will return to the site of one of its most well-attended conferences as it heads back to Orlando, Fla., in 2012. “We are excited to return to Orlando where, in 2008, the National Biodiesel Board hosted nearly 4,000 biodiesel stakeholders at our conference,” said Joe Jobe, NBB CEO. “2008 was a great year for the U.S. biodiesel industry and we are expecting 2012 to be another great conference.”

The four-day event will be held at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center, Feb. 5-8, 2012. 
Ron Marr, Biodiesel Manager for Minnesota Soybean Processors in Brewster, Minn., has attended the conference since 2005. “Attending this conference has always been well worth the time, money and effort spent to attend,” Marr said. “This is the place where all the ingredients making up the industry come together.”

Orlando is a worldwide destination with an abundance of theme parks and sunshine. “Orlando is a great place to hold an event like our conference because it is a great destination city with lots to offer, not only to our attendees but also to their families,” Jobe added. 

Located just 15 minutes from the Orlando International Airport, the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center is convenient in many ways. Its expansive exhibit halls, meeting spaces and hotel rooms are all under one roof. With numerous restaurants and night spots under that same roof, networking is made easy.
