"The 28th annual FEW is shaping up to be an exciting event," said Tom Bryan, vice president of BBI International. "With Bob Dinneen, president and CEO of the Renewable Fuels Association as one of our keynote speakers, in addition to our more than 140 session speakers, we believe this conference will provide attendees with exciting, current and relevant industry content."

The 2012 FEW is expected to draw more than 2,000 attendees and will include national and international ethanol producers, investors, industry suppliers and policymakers. During the course of the event, they'll discuss issues categorized into four tracks:

Track 1: Production & Operations Track 2: Leadership & Financial Management Track 3: Coproducts & Product Diversification Track 4: Cellulosic & Advanced Ethanol

"Many have expressed concern about the end of VEETC and wondering what affects it will have," said Nick Jensen, program manager for BBI International. "The first general session of the FEW will host five highly respected ethanol board members talking about living in the post VEETC world. Anyone serious about being a part of the ethanol industry moving forward will want to hear what they have to say."
