A Special Focus on Mergers & Acquisitions

For over a decade, our Symposiums have provided a forum for AE and environmental industry acquirers, sellers and investors to network and learn. We’re committed to providing our guests with the most current intelligence on M&A trends and best practices, and real-time M&A valuations. Over the years, many industry transactions can point to our Symposiums as where the first meeting between buyer and seller took place.

  • Deal-makers discuss what works and doesn’t in 2024
