This years Recycling & Waste Management Exhibition attracted more visitors and exhibitors than ever before.
Initial figures show that 9,028 people descended on the Birmingham NEC to visit the show from September 16 to 18. This is still subject to ABC audit. This represents a 12.4% increase on the record attendance figures achieved for RWM 2007. Stand space was sold out with 500 exhibitors and over two thirds have re-booked for 2009.
Exhibiting at the RWM show, Mailbox Mouldings director Bill Brown said: RWM is a very successful exhibition for us. In 2007 we acquired £140,000 of business specifically from customers we met here and 2008 is shaping up to be equally successful. Over the last couple of days weve talked to around 200 people, almost none of whom Ive met before, which is exactly why we came to meet people we dont already know.
RWM 09 will take place from September 15-17 2009 at Birmingham NEC.
