GREENFIELD, Mass. -- Former vice president Al Gore is scheduled to serve as the opening keynote speaker for the All Things Organic Conference and Trade Show, held this year May 5 to May 8 at Chicago's McCormick Place by the Organic Trade Association here, in partnership with Diversified Business Communications.
Now author, activist, and technological booster who recently received a mountain of publicity for his book on global warming, "An Inconvenient Truth," and the film based on it, Gore is expected to speak on environmental and technology issues and their impact on life and business.
Gore's keynote address will be a ticketed event. Those interested in attending should visit www.organicexpo.com for more information on ticket availability as details are confirmed.
