Environmental Show of the South

May 15-17, 2019
Chattanooga Convention Center

The Environmental Show of the South is the largest and most comprehensive environmental conference and tradeshow in the region.

Join us to hear speakers from leading environmental agencies, industry partners, law firms, and service providers as they share up-to-the-minute information. Learn about compliance from regulators and the regulated community alike. Visit our exhibit hall to meet vendors offering a full spectrum of environmental goods and services.

Over 1200 people, including 170 exhibitors, turned out for our 2018 Chattanooga event, and we expect even higher numbers in 2019.

Attendees attend the Opening and Closing Sessions together, then split off into eight technical tracks that run concurrently during the breakout sessions. Coordinated start and stop times for presentations and discussions allow attendees to tailor their conference experience to best fit their interests, while still enjoying plenty of networking time together in the exhibit hall.
