••Not for Profit/••

Here is some exciting news, we have been trying to find a partner that we could work with to co-locate our events with professionals in Supply Chain, Logistics and Manufacturing. We have found that REED exhibitions gives us that luxury while reducing our cost for our Members! So stay tuned-in, you will start to see Reverse Logistics Pavilions at many of the major REED events around the world. Picture an exhibit booth cost of only $4,999 and attendance cost under $399. This is just the beginning of the advantages.



Take a look at our next event in Sao Paulo, Brazil. There will be over one hundred and twenty exhibitors and 30,000 attendees at our combined event with the other logistics, warehousing and supply chain organizations. Make sure you visit the Reverse Logistics Pavilion in the center of the exhibit area and made sure your register for the conference sessions.

In my announcement this February at our flagship event in Las Vegas, I told the audience that I would be retiring in 2016. Well there is so much to do before then. Here are just a few of the tasks that must be completed in the next year and a half.



• Moving RLA to a “Not for Profit” status, more specifically a 501 (c)(6) filing with the Internal Revenue System. In Process
• Creating the Organization Done
• Organizing Documents Done
• Bylaws Done
• Employer Identification Number Done



When I started RLA in 2002, I never realized the size and scope that it would become. I’m always amazed to see so many titles with Reverse Logistics as part of the title, and in so many industries!

This edition of RL Magazine is full of helpful stories in both English and Portuguese. We hope that you will focus on this important market in Brazil. Come prepared to use this platform in Sao Paulo, Brazil where you’ll rub shoulders with both Reverse and Forward Logistics professionals across so many industries. Just take a look at the exhibitor list so for.
