ACE, BBI team up to promote ethanol industry

By BBI International & ACE | April 22, 2011

In an ongoing effort to best serve the U.S. ethanol industry, BBI International and the American Coalition for Ethanol are proud to announce that ACE has joined the International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo as a supporting organization.

In recent years, ACE paired its annual conference with a trade show.  This year, to better serve ACE members, ACE will partner with BBI as a supporting organization for the FEW, allowing ethanol industry suppliers and plant operators to concentrate on one trade show, and giving ACE the opportunity to focus its efforts on developing a valuable conference event.

“ACE is proud to partner with BBI and pleased to support one industry exposition at the FEW” said Brian Jennings, ACE executive vice president. “Both organizations have a longstanding history of offering first-class events to the ethanol industry, and we believe this partnership will continue to strengthen the industry as a whole.”

Joe Bryan, CEO of BBI International stated, “This is a win-win for both of us. By working together we’ll both be more effective in strengthening the ethanol community and creating more support and growth.” 

The International Fuel Ethanol Workshop & Expo will take place June 27-30, 2011 in Indianapolis, IN and the ACE Conference will be held Aug. 22-24 in Des Moines, Iowa.  Visit the websites for these organizations for more information on these events.
