[greenyes] 5th Annual Recycled Product Trade Show
Good afternoon,
For the past four years, the California Integrated Waste Management Board
(Board) has hosted the Annual Recycled Product Trade Show, in partnership
with other public agencies and the private sector.  Every year, the Board
looks for creative ways to promote the trade show to increase and expand
attendance and exhibits.  The Board has scheduled the 5th Annual Recycled
Product Trade Show, March 10-11, 2004 at the Sacramento Convention Center to
coincide with the California Resource Recovery Association (CRRA)
Conference, March 8-10, 2004, also at the Convention Center.  CRRA will
provide certification for participants in prescribed educational sessions at
this year's conference.  Two major events in one place, at one time - Don't
miss it!
The trade show, which is now in its fifth year, has become a high-profile
priority to the Board and the premiere West Coast event.  The purpose of the
show is to promote recycling-based businesses and the purchasing of
recycled-content (RCP) and environmentally preferable (EPP) products.  The
show brings together more than 100 exhibitors and over 2,000 attendees -
buyers, specification writers, project managers, and support staff - all the
people that make procurement decisions.  
The Recycled Product Trade Show provides an opportunity for RCP and EPP
suppliers to gain access to procurement leaders in the largest markets in
the country, and allows government and industry purchasing officials the
opportunity to become familiar with the wide array of RCPs and EPPs.
Attendees can place orders and conduct business with suppliers on the trade
show floor to help them meet their unique RCP and EPP procurement
requirements.
Buying RCPs and EPPs is not only good for the environment, but good for
business.  Recycling-based businesses, regardless of the size of the
company, support markets by creating jobs and producing value-added goods
made from materials diverted from the local waste stream, while supplying
products to meet the growing environment-friendly purchasing needs of
government agencies and businesses.  
Along with a myriad other RCPs and EPPs, this year's show will highlight
sustainable building products and services - products with low embodied
energy, long life spans, no or low volatile organic compounds, etc.  These
products can save you money - even those that may cost the same or slightly
more up front will save money in the long run through reduced maintenance
and replacement costs.   
As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to learn about new products
and emerging marketing trends; talk directly to over 100 product suppliers
and have them respond instantly to your questions and needs; explore a wide
variety of high-quality products - paper products, office supplies, toner
cartridges, building products, containers, furnishings, flooring/surfacing,
insulation, lumber, etc., and finally, see how far RCP and EPP manufacturers
have come with price, quality, and availability.
