Coal Prep is the only annual trade show and conference in the U.S. dedicated to coal preparation and processing. Industry professionals come from all over the world to share the latest ideas and most effective techniques on coal preparation and processing plant technologies. These professionals come to purchase and preview the latest equipment and services in order to increase plant productivity and reduce costs. Coal Prep celebrated its 31st annual event last year.
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
