WasteExpo 2004

WasteExpo 2004

On behalf of all of us who work on WasteExpo, Waste Age magazine and the Environmental Industry Associations, I would like to welcome you to WasteExpo 2004. This event culminates a year-long effort to create a vibrant educational experience that will bring you up to date on the industry’s technological innovations and critical trends. Within the pages of this magazine you will find a floorplan of the industry’s largest exhibit hall, information on education sessions and workshops, special events and so much more. For more information, please visit our Web site at www.wasteexpo.com. Clearly, WasteExpo is the industry’s most comprehensive event – so much so that 50 percent of WasteExpo attendees indicate this is the only event they attend.

Our industry, like most others, still is coping with a very tough economy. We know you have been asked to scrutinize every dollar you spend, and we kept this top-of-mind as we organized WasteExpo 2004. We realize that you need and expect – more than ever – greater return for the time, money and effort you spend to attend this event, and we plan to give it to you. There is no doubt in my mind that no other annual event comes close to providing you with the value you will receive from the relatively few days you spend in Dallas at WasteExpo 2004. No other trade event comes close to what WasteExpo offers to private sector haulers, public sector and municipal employees, landfill owners/operators, medical waste professionals and other waste generators, and others who make their living in the waste and recycling industries. WasteExpo 2004 and our two co-located conferences – the Medical Waste Conference and the Waste Tech Landfill Technology Conference – will provide you with knowledge, ideas, insight and tools that will make you more effective and competitive.

We can never underestimate the value of face-to-face interaction with customers, friends, colleagues, prospective customers and partners. With WasteExpo being the largest annual trade event in this industry, there is no better place to reconnect and to reach out.

The workshops and education program were developed with an emphasis on leading-edge information that is highly valuable and extremely relevant. We promise you that you will take home something concrete that you will be able to apply immediately for change and improved results. And the exhibit hall at WasteExpo is unsurpassed – more than 425 companies showcasing the best products and services you need to know about, to better serve your customers, better serve your communities, and to better run the company for which you work.

All of us who work on WasteExpo believe that this 2004 event in Dallas offers you a chance to see what others are doing, find out more about what people are talking about and, most importantly, discover the opportunities that are on the horizon. Whether you are looking for intellectual stimulation, networking time or the opportunity to troubleshoot a critical business issue, WasteExpo is your show. WasteExpo belongs to you. It belongs to this industry. I sincerely hope our efforts serve your needs and that you will plan to join us in May in Dallas.

Sincerely,

Rita Ugianskis-Fishman Group Show Director, WasteExpo Primedia Business Exhibitions
