100% of attendees continue to give this conference a thumbs up for its value!  

This conference draws attendance of the most influential policymakers, bankers and consultants in the industry”, Eoin Dougherty, Senior Associate, Environmental Incentives

As a regulator, I was able to exchange ideas and experiences with other regulators … as well as get to know the bankers better – thank you!

I can’t thank you enough — I’m leaving with a business arrangement that never would have happened without this Conference.

This is my favorite conference every year because I get to reconnect with colleagues across the country that are doing new and innovative work in the field with restoration and ecology, with building new markets in carbon.

It’s an amazing convening effort where it gets landowners, resource agencies, mitigation providers, financiers, and insurance enterprises together all under one roof to talk about practical solutions to mitigation.

I really appreciate having chat time with other states and regulatory agencies, it was a wonderful way to hear about their programs, concerns, and issues.

Thank you for providing a conference like this where so many backgrounds can meet together and learn from each other— this is an amazing conference!
