Got a reminder in my e-mail today about the upcoming National Biodiesel Conference & Expo, Feb. 1-4, 2009, in San Francisco.
There will be a ton of things to see and do, ranging from hearing Grammy- and Oscar-winning singer Melissa Etheridge talking about how biodiesel has inspired her… to information on the sustainability efforts being made in the biodiesel industry. There’s so much going on, the National Biodiesel Board is inviting career journalists working for news outlets such as daily newspapers, magazines and network affiliate news programs to take the complimentary media registration and cover all the events:
Media are invited to take a bay tour the afternoon of Tuesday, Feb. 3, on the Red and White ferry fleet which uses biodiesel. The company owner and staff will be on hand to answer questions. Another media event is a planned Ride-and-Drive, to be held Sunday, Feb. 1.
The conference will also feature musician Melissa Etheridge on her belief in and use of biodiesel. As always, educational tracks and networking opportunities will abound. The conference will focus on sustainability, with educational sessions on the vital topic built in throughout the four-day event. One focus will be emerging biodiesel feedstocks such as algae. At scheduled press events, you will have access to the industry’s top leaders and latest news.
Media registration is available by clicking here. Of course, if you can’t make it to the conference, Domestic Fuel will be covering the events. We’ll see you there!
