EBC Seminar: Environmental Industry Opportunities – Moving into 2006

December 1, 2005 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

Environmental company executives: join us for a presentation on trends and opportunities in the environmental industry. This presentation will be followed by a focused review of key business sector developments that will create a demand for environmental services. Then gain business insight from senior environmental industry leaders as they present their thoughts (and strategies) about developments in major environmental industry service areas.

7:30 a.m. Registration and Continental Breakfast
8:00 a.m. Review of the Environmental Industry – Trends and OpportunitiesGuest Speaker: Joan Berkowitz
Managing Director, Farkas Berkowitz & CompanyThe infrastructure and environmental engineering market grew 5-percent in 2004, generating total revenues of $19.6 billion across four major sectors – power, transportation, water quality, and remediation. The market as a whole should see an aggregate growth rate of 7 percent this year and could see double-digit growth in 2006. The power engineering market rebounded in 2004 with signs of continuing growth; remediation services showed surprising strength; and the water-quality engineering market continued strong. The transportation engineering market contracted in 2004, remained weak in 2005, and should recover in 2006 with the passage of Safety-LU in August of this year. Engineers continue to expand their service offerings, adding such front-end services as financial and management consulting and asset management, as well as planning and program management services. More engineering firms are also providing construction as prime contractors or as joint venture partners with construction firms as the trend towards design-build continues.
8:30 a.m. Developments in the Market Place – Review of Key Market SectorsMany significant business sectors have EHS issues impacting them. What future developments with EHS implications do they see for themselves and their economic sector? How will these trends impact your business opportunities? A panel of experts representing several key economic drivers will provide their perspective on future developments with EHS issues impacting their sector.
