Registration is now open for the Renewable Fuels Association’s 29th annual National Ethanol Conference, taking place in San Diego February 19-21. The 2024 event is themed “Powered by Partnerships” to reflect the deeply collaborative and cooperative nature of the ethanol industry, said RFA Board Chairman Erik Huschitt, CEO of Badger State Ethanol.


“As our industry expands into new areas of innovation, we have found ourselves working with a broader community of partners, ranging from airlines to railroads, and from automakers to oil companies,” Huschitt said. “And we’ve seen our bonds grow even stronger with our traditional allies like farmers and fuel retailers. We all have realized that the net-zero-carbon future we each seek can only be realized through cooperation and collaboration, and this is the perfect theme for our program in San Diego. The 2024 National Ethanol Conference is going to be a terrific opportunity for learning and networking in an atmosphere truly powered by the partnership of all those present.”


The NEC is the nation’s most widely attended executive-level conference for the ethanol industry,  where sessions featuring globally renowned speakers are interspersed with numerous networking opportunities to help the industry connect and collaborate. Last year in Orlando, RFA hosted nearly 800 industry stakeholders, including attendees from 14 countries around the world.


Early bird registration provides substantial discounts until Nov. 30, and RFA members enjoy additional savings. For more information and to register, visit For updates, follow NEC on X (formerly Twitter), at @EthanolConf, and track social media posts with the term #RFANEC.
