Annual resource efficiency and waste management conference expected to draw 15,000 visitors.
More than 15,000 visitors are expected to attend the RWM in partnership with CIWM event set for 10-12 Sept. at the NEC conference center in Birmingham, UK. Billed as Europe’s premier annual resource efficiency and waste management conference, the trade show, organized by i2i Events, features more than 750 exhibitors and 150-plus speakers in the free conference program.
Among the 750 exhibitors from throughout Europe will be numerous waste contractors such as Viridor, Biffa Polymers and Hills Waste, as well as plant and vehicle suppliers, reprocessors, handling and logistics, equipment and machinery plus energy from waste specialists.
Key features returning this year include The Materials Village, which will focus on recycling and reprocessing a wide range of waste streams from collection and sort, to end markets for recovered material.
The event organizers have also developed several “trails” to help visitors with targeted agendas make the most of their trip. The New Exhibitor Trail will help visitors hone in on new exhibitors. This is complemented by the Innovation Trail, which highlights new products and developments and the Energy from Waste Trail, which shows the infrastructure and equipment for both biological and thermal processes. The Working Exhibit Trail reveals waste management working machinery in action.
Central to RWM in partnership with CIWM are the 150-plus speakers across the five theaters, including Edward Davey MP, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, who will take to the stage on 11 September. Many other inspirational speakers at the free conference include Lord Robert Winston, professor of science and society, Professor Jacqueline Cramer, Professor of Sustainable Innovation at Utrecht University and journalist and broadcaster on environmental issues Lucy Siegle.
Each theater has a subject focus, such as Energy from Waste, Commerce and Industry and Communications (delivered by Copper Consultancy in partnership with SLR Consulting and the Associate Parliamentary Sustainable Resource Group).
For the benefit of the many professionals embracing wider sustainability goals, RWM in partnership with CIWM 2013 is also co-located with three complementary events: The Energy Event, The Renewables Event and the new Water Event. All events can be accessed free by visitors who attend RWM in partnership with CIWM.
