FMA Summits: Progressive Energy, Environment & Sustainability Summit #17


Montreal, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/07/2013 -- FMA Summits ( has just completed their 17th in Denver, CO this past September 15th-17th.

FMA’s 17th Progressive Energy, Environment & Sustainability Summit overcame extreme weather conditions to run without a hitch! The sold out Summit featured 24 Partners providing a plethora of energy efficient solutions and services, including companies such as: BASF, H&A Architects, AERCO International, Armstrong Fluid Technology and Airometrix Mfg., Inc. 100 delegates took advantage of peer education via presentations by our key note speakers which included Thomas Mort, Global Energy Director for Archer Daniels Midland who also recently received the ‘Global Energy Manager of the Year’ award from the Association of Energy Engineers (AEE).

“The success stories at the FMA Summit had valuable lessons and guidelines for how a business can become sustainable. Overall, a great Summit- will hopefully inspire change for many companies!” said Aimee Prince from JBS USA when asked to provide feedback on what takeaways were present during the two and a half day event.

When asked to comment on the value presentations, given by our Partners who shared their various energy efficiency technologies and services and the overall experience of attending, Letha Barnes of Bridgestone Tires added; “The environment was very conducive to networking, which allowed everyone to share ideas, experiences and challenges. Lots of great topics [and] the plethora of information was much more than expected. I brought back great information to share with my team.”

Implementing assigned seating was a change to FMA Summits’ format that optimized the one-on-one meeting arrangements, which allowed for Partners and Attendees to take advantage of additional face time with each other on top of the networking receptions that make up the foundation of an FMA Summit.

“As always, I thoroughly enjoy FMA Summits as the prospects are interested and engaged in the business concepts presented. No one appears to attend without purpose. This is very refreshing when compared to other events,” mused David Barton, Director of Sales & Marketing for Covanta 4Recovery.

Our upcoming and last Summit for the 2013 year will be held December 2nd-4th in San Antonio, TX.
