NEW YORK, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Penton's Waste Industry Group today announced the full agenda for the WasteExpo/Wunderlich Securities Investor Summit, which will take place Monday, May 20, 2013 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans, LA.

WasteExpo, North America's largest solid waste and recycling industry event, is collaborating with Wunderlich Securities, a full-service brokerage firm to produce the Summit. The event will bring together senior management of major solid, industrial and energy waste companies, innovators of new technologies and institutional investors in a unique forum to speak directly to the financial community about the state of the industry and the performance of its leading businesses.

As the first major event on this year's WasteExpo agenda ( May 20-23), the Summit reflects the partners' shared commitment to expand the industry dialogue around sustainable materials management, and furthers Penton's specific intent to expand the scope of its 60-plus annual business-to-business events.

"The sustainable materials management industry – where the lifecycle of waste traces a course from raw material extraction to product manufacture, transport, use, source reduction, reuse, recycling and disposal – is not glamorous. But with a market cap of nearly $50 billion, this diversified industry presents an attractive investment profile bolstered by a rich pipeline of innovative technologies and a proven commitment to protect the environment," said Rita Ugianskis, Managing Director, Penton's Waste Industry Group. 

Michael E. Hoffman, Managing Director at Wunderlich Securities covers the solid, industrial and energy waste markets, will lead the event. "The Summit raises awareness of the pivotal role the sustainable materials management market plays in the world of business," said Hoffman.
