We all have our reasons for attending professional events such as WASTECON. For some, it’s the classes and presentations. For others, it’s the networking. For me, it’s these, of course, but even more so it’s the exhibit floor and the chance to chat with exhibitors and attendees alike, getting their slant on what’s going on around the country.
Three weeks from today, I’ll have another chance—my 19th if my addition is correct—to see what’s moving and shaking in the waste world. As of this morning, there are 226 exhibitors ready to talk with us about their wares, as well as what they are seeing now and in the future. If I spend as little as three minutes with each, that’s 11 hours right there, and given that the exhibit floor is scheduled to be open for a total of 13 hours during the three days, it means I’ll have to wear track shoes to make it to the finish line in time.
My point here is that there is more in just this one aspect of WASTECON than you or I can possibly take advantage of, which is reason enough to attend, but also there is the host city of Boston, Birthplace of the American Revolution and home to Fenway Park and its world-famous “Green Monster.”
I hope to see you there.
