John H. Skinner, Ph.D., SWANA’s Executive Director and CEO, announced in Pheonix that attendance numbers for WASTECON 2004 exceeded expectations amidst an increase in participation across all events over last year’s conference.
Led by an over 50 per cent increase in training program participation, WASTECON 2004, held September 21-23 in Phoenix, Arizona, showed an overall increase in attendance of just over 10 per cent.
Skinner commented on this year’s conference, "WASTECON 2004 has been a success for SWANA and for the countless attendees who were able to get cutting-edge information and network with others who can help them do their jobs and advance their careers. We are already looking forward to WASTECON 2005 in Austin, Texas."
