NASCAR driver Kyle Petty will be the keynote speaker at the National Demolition Association’s 35th Anniversary Convention Feb. 24 to 27, 2008, at The Mirage in Las Vegas. NASCAR will be the theme of the exhibition.
To accommodate the growing number of exhibitors at the convention each year, the National Demolition Association has secured the entire 90,000 sq. ft. of The Mirage’s Event Center.
“With the healthy economy and strong scrap market, the demolition industry is booming and we expect a record turnout of both exhibitors and attendees this coming year,” said Michael R. Taylor, executive director of the association.
The association is offering one free delegate registration to any new or existing member company which has never attended a convention before. The registration covers both the members and their spouses and includes all speakers and educational sessions, a cocktail reception, all breakfasts and lunches, a NASCAR Theme Party and the cocktail reception and annual banquet. It does not include hotel, airfare and other travel expenses.
“We really want to encourage new and current member companies to take full advantage of the opportunity to see what’s new in the industry, benefit from our breakout sessions and network with their colleagues,” Taylor said.
Kyle Petty, a successful driver and son and grandson of racing legends Richard and Lee Petty respectively, will speak on the topic “What a Ride: Life, Family, Community and the Race Track”. Other speakers will address topics such as safety and profitability; California’s diesel rule; C&D recycling and disaster debris management; lawsuits; marketing; and workforce development.
