NEW YORK, Feb. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Penton's Waste Industry Group and Wunderlich Securities today announced the second annual WasteExpo Investor Summit, which will take place Monday, April 28, 2014 from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Georgia World Congress Center, Atlanta, GA.
The Investor Summit, which is the only dedicated gathering of corporate executives and institutional investors in the waste industry, is a collaborative effort between WasteExpo, North America's largest solid waste, recycling and organics industry event, and Wunderlich Securities, a full-service brokerage firm. The Summit will once again bring together senior management of major solid, industrial and energy waste companies, innovators of new technologies and institutional investors, giving them a unique platform to speak directly to the financial community about the state of the industry and the performance of its leading businesses.
"The Investor Summit is the first major event on this year's WasteExpo agenda (April 28-May 1) and reflects our commitment to expanding the industry dialogue around sustainable materials management," said Warren N. Bimblick, Penton Senior Vice President, Strategy and Business Development. "Last year's successful launch of the Investor Summit speaks to the industry's interest in this type of interactive event, and we're pleased to bring together key figures and thought leaders from both the private and public companies."
Michael E. Hoffman, Managing Director at Wunderlich Securities and a 27-year veteran of Wall Street with a focus on the solid, industrial and energy waste markets, will lead the event. "We are excited to be back with the WasteExpo Investor Summit following a terrific inaugural year in New Orleans," said Hoffman. "As we did last year, we will have a day-long series of interviews with industry leaders in solid waste, hazardous/industrial waste, and energy waste. In addition, there will be topical panels focusing on Automation and Productivity, Private Equity Investing in Waste Companies, and The State of the Energy Waste Industry."
