Renewable Fuels Association President and CEO Bob Dinneen was very happy with the 17th annual National Ethanol Conference held last week in Orlando, Florida.
“I actually think this was our best conference ever,” Dinneen said at the conclusion of the event on Friday which drew 1200 attendees and headline speakers. “I just thought the vibe in the room was very, very constructive. People are sober about the marketplace, but they are very hopeful about the future.”
Dinneen was especially pleased with Secretary Vilsack’s address and the luncheon with Karl Rove and Robert Gibbs, as well as some of the great panel discussions that included some ethanol opponents. “I think there’s just benefit to everybody being informed. I respect other people’s opinions,” he said.
Now that the conference is over, it’s back to work for RFA on issues like getting E15 to consumers and protecting the RFS.
