Cabrillo Beach located steps from the Conference Hotel
Join CRRA in San Pedro for its 31st annual conference and tradeshow. This year’s event will be at the beautiful Doubletree Hotel San Pedro on July 29 – August 1, 2007. This luxurious Mediterranean style hotel, overlooking the picturesque Cabrillo Marina, is just 18 miles south of Los Angeles and six miles south of Long Beach. CRRA will be the only hosted event in the hotel during the conference dates, so plan to stay on site to enhance your networking opportunity.
This is California’s premier event for professionals engaged in the recycling and waste reduction field. CRRA attendees come from local governments, state agencies, non-profits, consulting businesses, collection and hauling companies, and businesses that supply the industry with the tools and services that are needed to reduce waste and recycle more. They are engaged in developing and managing programs for reuse, recycling collections, organics, construction & demolition recovery, electronics, household hazardous waste, and other environmental services. In addition, they are involved in the creation and formation of governmental policies and educational outreach campaigns that target consumers and companies to set a course for zero waste.
Educational sessions will begin on Sunday, July 29th, with keynote presentations and tracks commencing on Monday, July 30th. This year CRRA will continue its new exhibit hall format with a two hour evening reception the night of Monday, July 30th, followed by a full day of exhibit hall activities on Tuesday, July 31st. Tuesday will end with a presentation of the CRRA Annual Award Winners and dinner event featuring the NCRA Players. Wednesday, August 1st, sessions will be completed followed by a closing plenary and then attendees will finish the conference off by attending local technical tours.
CRRA is planning many special events, networking opportunities and fun tours as well this year. Starting Friday, July 27th, CRRA will organize various family and fun outings highlighting the local scenic area. Please check the website often for a list of these special events. CRRA has arranged reduced guest room rates three days pre and post conference, so plan to make this not only an educational event, but also a family event!
We look forward to seeing you in San Pedro in July!
