Everything you need to know about RWM 2016!
Posted by Tom Oakes
Its summer! So whilst the rest of the world go off enjoying their holidays we in the exhibition and trade show industry are hard at work preparing for show season in the autumn. So what can we all be looking forward to? In my latest series of blogs I am going to preview some of the best shows coming up in September and October. First up is RWM (Recycling waste management) 2016.
What is RWM all about?
RWM is the UK’s leading event bringing together the recycling and waste management industry. With over 700 exhibitors it offers visitors the opportunity to meet with the widest range of recycling and waste management professionals from some of the biggest Global companies including Viridor, SITA, Kingfisher and Rolls-Royce. With a full schedule of seminars and talks from industry leaders for anyone working in the industry attendance is a must.
Where and when
RWM is held from the 13 – 15th September at the UK’s leading exhibition hall the NEC in Birmingham. Open from 09:30 – 17:30 over the course of 3 days the event offers you plenty of time to visit, explore and network until your hearts content.
It’s not simply one event!
RWM is not simply a single event. Over the course of its 3 day duration there will be 3 specialised events the energy event, the renewables event and the water event running concurrently with the main trade show. In such a varied industry the event allows those attending from specialised areas to schedule their attendance to coincide with events more suited to their sector.
Who is attending
RWM is very much international. 13’000 visitors from over 66 countries are expected to visit during the course of the event but that’s not all, 62% of all visitors fall under the category of company leader, senior management or department head (13% will be CEO or Managing Director) and we all know what that mean… RWM attracts some serious decision makers.
