>will be considered if they can provide good information our readers need, 
>in a non-commercial presentation.
>VENDORS: Occasionally we have speeches from vendors, but there must be 
>something special or highly informative. One other way to get your product 
>or service on front of our corporate audience is to take out a sponsorship 
>or booth.  Costs range from $1,200 - $5,000. The sponsorship gets your 
>link and ad in front of thousands of environmental decision-makers for 
>many months!!
