4 undeniable reasons to attend the Plastics Recycling Conference 2013

We’ve written before about some of the best networking events for the plastic recycling industry, and one of the biggest and best trade shows of the year is coming up in New Orleans, the Plastics Recycling Conference. This is a must-attend destination for anyone in the scrap plastic industry.

BlackBridge Investments will be attending the Plastics Recycling Conference on March 19-20, 2013 at the Sheraton New Orleans. We’re excited to be going to this conference to meet with some of our valued industry peers and colleagues, and we hope to connect with many of you in person.

Here are a few compelling reasons to attend the Plastics Recycling Conference:

  • Networking: We believe that the personal relationships are the best foundation for successful scrap plastic trading. Ultimately we can all do bigger, more efficient and more profitable plastic scrap trades if we’re working with people we know and trust. We hope to get a chance to meet some people in person at the Plastics Recycling Conference who we haven’t met before. This trade show is a compact enough event – they had over 1,300 attendees last year – that there should be plenty of opportunities to re-connect with some of your best customers and trading partners, while also finding time to meet with new people who can help your business.
  • Learning: We are excited to hear from some industry experts and thought leaders with their latest analysis of industry trends! Even though we already read a lot of scrap plastic and plastic recycling industry publications, there is a special advantage that comes from being in the room with industry experts and getting to ask questions. We expect to take away some valuable insights from this conference that we can immediately use to help our business grow.
  • Industry focus: This is the largest trade show that is focused exclusively on the plastics recycling industry. We think it is valuable to be able to attend a conference that is geared toward exactly the kinds of information and business relationships that we need. Even with the new online tools and social media and other ways to connect with people, there is a special benefit that comes from being able to meet with people face-to-face and be there in person to hear the latest news, trends and market analysis that affects our industry.
  • Fun: Did we mention that this conference is going to be in New Orleans? The conference will be hosted just a short distance from the French Quarter, the Warehouse District, and all the other excitement of the Big Easy. There are many reasons why New Orleans is such a popular host city for conferences and trade shows – it’s one of the most fun-loving and culturally unique cities in America.
