About the NEC
Since 1996, the RFA’s National Ethanol Conference (NEC) has been recognized as the preeminent conference for delivering accurate, timely information on marketing, legislative and regulatory issues facing the ethanol industry. With numerous networking opportunities, more business meetings are conducted and contacts made at this conference than any other ethanol conference.
In 2012, more than 1,200 industry leaders attended the NEC, representing 41 states and 21 countries. Nearly 45% had attended the NEC before. Delegates cited networking, business development, and to learn about government policies and ethanol technology as their primary reasons for attending the NEC.
