Top Five Reasons to Attend the 2014 Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference

Throughout 2014 the recycling industry has continually been presented with unexpected challenges along with new opportunities. The organizers of the 15th Annual Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference, which will be held Oct. 8-10, 2014, in downtown Chicago, believe there are numerous reasons to attend our event, but here are the top five:

5) Bowling for a good cause! Attendees will have the chance to bolster the PSI Scholarship Fund with a night at an upscale downtown Chicago bowling alley. The evening of Wednesday, Oct. 8, the Paper Stock Industries (PSI) Chapter of ISRI (Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries) is hosting a fundraiser at Lucky Strike Chicago, just a few blocks from conference host hotel. Don’t miss out on the good food, great fun and friendly competition. To register for the PSI Bowling Tournament as a team or as an individual, click here.
4) An exhibit hall full of good ideas! The recycling industry’s leading equipment suppliers and service providers will be gathered in one convenient spot Oct. 8 and 9. 
3) Sessions addressing the hot topics! Interactive sessions about all aspects of paper and plastic scrap collection, trading and operations are on the schedule.
2) Networking, networking, networking! Our conference is designed to provide maximum opportunities for impromptu conversations or to schedule meetings with current and prospective customers. They’ll be in Chicago—you should be there too.
1) It’s Chicago! Our conference is in downtown Chicago—home to the world’s best steak houses, deep-dish pizza, martini bars, Irish taverns and the Magnificent Mile shopping district. The conference ends on a Friday this year, so why not extend your stay and spend your weekend in Chicago?
Set aside the dates for the conference and register today. We hope to see you in Chicago, Oct. 8-10, at the Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference.
