Commodity Spotlight Speakers Announced for ISRI2019

(Washington, DC) – In the lead up to ISRI2019, its Annual Convention and Exposition, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) released a list of new speakers for its Commodity Spotlights. The list is composed of senior executives, policy experts, and economists from around the recycling industry that can help attendees navigate today’s markets.

“One of the great things about the spotlights is that you get to hear a variety of expert viewpoints from commodity analysts, scrap processors, brokers, and consumers,” said Joe Pickard, chief economist for ISRI. “So you not only get the analysts’ forecasts about where commodity markets are headed, but you also get to hear from actual industry members about what’s driving their business, and you get to participate in the conversation. Given how rapidly scrap markets both at home and abroad are evolving, they’ll be no shortage of things to discuss this year.”
