The National Ethanol Conference (NEC) is the most widely attended executive level conference for the ethanol industry. Since 1996, the Renewable Fuels Association’s NEC has been recognized as the preeminent conference for delivering accurate, timely information on marketing, legislative and regulatory issues facing the ethanol industry. With numerous networking opportunities, more business meetings are conducted and contacts made at this conference than any other ethanol conference.
In 2018, nearly 1,000 industry leaders and professionals attended the NEC, representing 37 states, the District of Columbia and 17 countries. Networking and business development have been the leading factors promoting attendance since the NEC’s inception.
