The organisers of RWM, the annual waste and recycling show usually held every September at the NEC, have announced the show will now take place in November due to Covid-19.
You can read more details about the show in the text below, taken from the official media release from organisers ROAR B2B. The WRA still plans to have a stand at the event and is looking forward to seeing our members and others there!
FRIDAY 12 JUNE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE: RWM 2020 rescheduled to 3-4 November 2020
ROAR B2B, the organisers of RWM, the UK’s leading recycling, resource and waste management event, have taken the decision to reschedule the event to 3rd – 4th November 2020. The move follows close monitoring of government guidance regarding the COVID-19 pandemic along with feedback from stakeholders and customers.
The decision has not been taken lightly coming after a long period of time working with the NEC Birmingham, CIWM and other industry associations to ensure that an event environment can be developed which provides both a safe and productive platform for the industry to come together.
The Organiser of the event has lost 3 months in the normal annual operating cycle. The added time created by rescheduling the event later in the year will improve the planning, organisation and audience of RWM 2020.
Extensive research has been undertaken by the organisers with the resounding message from the market, that RWM is a key component in reigniting the market after such an uncertain period.
Bradley Maule-ffinch, ROAR B2B Group Managing Director commented, “Our teams have been working hard to bring you an event in 2020 that connects the industry, showcases ground-breaking developments, innovations, and shares expertise & learning. We are committed to working with the industry to ensure our exhibitors and stakeholders are given a high level of customer service in this uncertain time. Moving the RWM dateline back by several months will allow more time to catch up after a few difficult months and put on the show that the market deserves.”
