The Recycling Today Media Group and Media Fusion are hosting three recycling events in early March in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. All three events take place at the JW Marriott Marquis hotel.

Recycling Today Media Group publishes Recycling Today Global Edition magazine, and Media Fusion is the publisher of Waste & Recycling Middle East.

For the third consecutive year, the organizations will host the Paper & Plastics Recycling Middle East conference, geared for paper and plastics collectors, processors, sellers and buyers. The event is set for 4-5 March, 2014.

“It is again our privilege to welcome recyclers and government officials from the Gulf Cooperation Council region and around the world to enjoy Dubai and make new connections that will help them and the industry to prosper,” says Dr. Kayyum Ali, CEO of Media Fusion.

The publishers also will host the Middle East Metals Recycling Conference, which takes place 2-3 March, 2014.

Event sessions will examine global commodity markets for scrap metal, including copper, aluminum, ferrous, stainless steel, precious metal and electronic scrap. Attendees also will receive updates on customs and regulatory issues affecting international trade and benefit from presentations on processing methods and techniques.

“We’re thrilled to cooperate with the team at Waste & Recycling Middle East to again offer this event for the active metals recycling and trading community in the Middle East,” says Jim Keefe, group publisher of the Recycling Today Media Group.

Both conferences feature exhibit areas and networking opportunities in addition to conference presentations and interactive discussions.

New for 2014 is the End-of-Life Vehicle (ELV) Workshop, which takes place the afternoon of 3 March. This half-day event is designed to provide local insights in a global context on the ELV recycling process as it relates to auto salvage and scrap metal professionals, vehicle manufacturers and battery and component suppliers to the auto repair sector.
