The Planning Committee for FBEC is currently working on the 2020 Call for Presentations & Posters. Please stay tuned for updated information.
The Planning Committee for FBEC annually accepts submissions for presentations and posters for the upcoming conference. There are no published conference proceedings and no sales pitches so that the presentations, posters and subsequent discussions can be more candid and enlightening. Presentations are delivered in a general session format to allow the greatest participation possible. Posters receive maximum interaction and exposure during scheduled networking sessions. With the above in mind, we are pleased to issue this Call for Presentations & Posters. The list of this year’s session topics is included in the Call for Presentations and Posters form. All presentations should focus on actual case examples from the food and beverage industry. We encourage examples of successes, failures, and lessons learned.
To ensure proper and timely consideration, interested parties must complete the attached Presentation Proposal Form and/or Poster Proposal Form and return it to the Conference Chair, Michael Boese, by November 2, 2018. Accepted posters and papers will be notified December 7, 2018. Additional applications will be considered after those dates, subject to availability.Go to Presentation Proposal Form
FBEC is the premier and most comprehensive environmental event for the food and beverage industry in the United States. This event discovers the latest trends and innovations affecting water reuse, supply chain challenges, air quality and many more, all while priding itself on a platform that promotes networking and like-minded individuals within the industry. If you are involved in any business related to the food and beverage industry this event is for you! You should attend if you are a craft brewery or distillery, pet food maker, grocery store or are involved in nutrition, farming, food and beverage processing, transportation, distribution, preparation, supply chain management, EHS, sustainability and wastewater solutions.
And includes ad-hoc sessions exploring topics like Air 101, Wastewater 101, EHS Recruitment, Development and Retention, and teaching you the tools you need to sell your CAPEX planning projects to the CFO.
I come to FBEC every year knowing it will include a variety of focused environmental topics relating to the food and beverage industry. There is no better conference for sharing best practices, hearing about environmental horror stories, and networking with industry peers and other experienced environmental leaders.

As an environmental attorney representing food and beverage clients, I was thrilled when one of those clients invited me to attend FBEC almost 20 years ago. I have attended every year since then. The conference has enriched my knowledge, legal practice, and relationships. There are in-depth presentations by people in the industry who know its cutting-edge environmental issues best. You will be able to draw upon the collective wisdom of many of the attendees and speakers; they are a friendly, collegial group and willing to share their expertise.

I came to the Food and Beverage Environmental Conference as a novice to environmental compliance. I realized I was out of my depth as words, phrases, and abbreviations were tossed about…I was convinced someone would discover that I didn’t belong and show me the door. Instead, I met people who were excited to engage, explain, and encourage me to grow. Beyond the network of contacts I have built, the information has been astounding. Every year, I take away things that I can immediately implement with the team…and even more that challenges me to dig deeper, taking new-to-me concepts and learning what next steps to take.
