"We're thrilled to continue our relationship with Michael E. Hoffman, a top analyst in the waste and recycling industry, and to begin collaborating with Stifel Financial Corp., which is a premier wealth management and investment banking firm," said Warren N. Bimblick, Penton group president. (Penton is Waste360's parent company.) "Since its inception, the Summit has been very successful – last year we saw a 20-percent increase in attendance. We are pleased to be able to showcase this $70 billion market cap industry.”
Added Hoffman, "We are very pleased to extend our relationship with Penton and to deliver timely, relevant content that impacts operators and vendors in the solid, industrial and E&P (exploration and production) energy waste industries. Like the first two Investor Summits, we will offer one-on-one interviews with key industry executives as well as a series of more robust panel discussions on key industry topics such as E&P Energy Waste, the Midsized Private Company Perspective and Using Big Data to a Competitive Advantage."
