education and provides a forum for the exchange of
information about innovative products, technologies,
and causes that will help us leave a cleaner, safer
world to future generations.
In 2015, EDTx will expand on its success in becoming
the largest annual public environmental event in the
world by opening on Friday with its inaugural EcoConference.
A very important part of the Eco-Conference will be
the events and meetings held by leaders in Texas
myriad professional, government, non-profit, and
academic communities.
It is our hope that you will take the initiative to
hold an event or meeting during the EcoConference to i) further your organizations
mission, and ii) expose your constituency to
information and ideas that will help us create a
cleaner and more sustainable world.
