A number of new features are being heralded by the organisers of RWM 2017, which takes place from 12-14 September at the NEC Birmingham.
The event, run in partnership with the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM), will include new dedicated event zones, the RWM Connects meetings service, new visitor trails and a CIWM clinic.
For the first time, the halls bring together the energy, water, recycling, renewables and waste management sectors, combining the previously co-located Energy, Water and Renewables events.
RWM 2017 will feature six dedicated zones, including two new ones: Supply & Demand, for networking, learning and business opportunities in the UK energy and water markets; and Data, Tech & Services, which covers smart, practical software solutions with a focus on quality data and supporting services.
RWM will also offer four visitor discovery trails that identify key exhibitors for audiences looking for a specific service or a more organised experience. For example, the Local Authority Solutions trail has been designed to highlight all exhibitors and content relevant to those responsible for waste management and resource, legislative issues and fleet management.
RWM Connects is a ‘matchmaking’ service hosted in the Recyclers & Reprocessors zone allowing exhibitors and visitors to arrange meetings before the show.
The CIWM Clinic will see industry experts on-hand during the course of the show offering advice and insight. Visitors can book a one-to-one chat with experts who are mainly CIWM Fellows.
Event director Nicola Meadows said: “We are dedicated to creating an unmissable expanded RWM 2017 – an exhibition designed to allow visitors and exhibitors to capitalise on crossover, integration and collaboration opportunities, and really make the most out of their time.
“The umbrella concept is our One Planet Living mission, which champions the better management and supply of the world’s resources in an increasingly interconnected world.”
