2 | E-Scrap 2014: The meetings that matter

Start planning now for E-Scrap 2014, where you'll be able to make connections with the leading industry trade associations and groups all in one convenient (and sunny) location.

In conjunction with the conference, a number of additional meetings and events will take place, including ISRI's welcome reception the evening of Oct. 21. Attend the full range of meetings and sessions to learn what's new in electronics recycling, maximize value in reuse, and get an overview of e-scrap laws.

In addition, the trade show at E-Scrap 2014 will open a day earlier than in years past. The hall will open Tuesday, Oct. 21, and hours that initial day will be 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. The hall will also be open for all your networking needs on Wednesday, Oct. 22 and Thursday, Oct. 23.

E-Scrap 2014 will be held Oct. 21-23 at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida. The 2013 edition saw more than 1,300 attendees and 125 exhibiting companies, so plan now to secure your spot at this fall's conference. Get all the latest information at e-scrapconference.com.
