Networking Opportunities

We are the most widely attended executive-level conference for the ethanol industry. With numerous networking opportunities, more business meetings are conducted and contacts made at this conference than at any other ethanol conference.

Why Industry Leaders Attend
The National Ethanol Conference

"As with agriculture, the biofuel industry has been built on a foundation of strong relationships, shared goals, and proactive collaboration. NEC provides the opportunity for those personal connections to grow, discussion of strategic policy priorities, and new innovations to be spotlighted. I encourage anyone in the industry, whether a young professional like myself or a seasoned industry veteran to attend NEC, we are stronger together!"

Elizabeth Burns-Thompson, VP of Government and Public Affairs, Navigator CO2

"The NEC is a priority event each year. The program is engaging and filled with the latest updates, industry outlook and developing opportunities. In addition, the NEC assembles a host of representatives to provide a range of perspectives and networking opportunities."

Rick Allen, Vice President of Business Development, Next Wave Energy Partners

"The RFA understands that our industry is about relationships. Attending the National Ethanol Conference each year provides our team the opportunity to network, collaborate, and learn more about trends and the future state of ethanol. The wealth of knowledge and connections made are of immeasurable value to our company."

Eric Chase, President, Chase Nedrow Industries

"I understand that everyone is busy and there are not enough hours in the day, but making time for the NEC proves to be a must year after year. You are either green and growing or ripe and rotting. Our industry must stay focused and engaged in order to write our own destiny and the NEC is a vital platform where engagement with our fellow producers and technology providers makes that possible. I commend the RFA for their hard work in being committed to always putting on an engaging event. I challenge the entire biofuel community to continue to make their attendance a priority as the event can only be successful with their engagement."

Erik Huschitt, CEO & General Manager, Badger State Ethanol

"Attending the sessions at NEC is a very efficient way for the Heartland Corn Products board and myself to hear the same information at the same time. This information becomes the cornerstone of our strategy sessions, providing a platform for further discussion as we plan for the future. The 2022 NEC sessions again met our expectations and will continue to be a key component of our planning process into the future"

Gary Anderson, CEO, Heartland Corn Products
