Registration is now open for the expanded RWM 2017 event, which takes place from 12 to 14 September at the NEC Birmingham in partnership with the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM), and boasts a host of new and revamped features.

Visitors to the new-look show will be able to efficiently plan their day and expand their scope for networking and business opportunities by exploring the show’s event trails. The visitor discovery trails are simple, time-saving tools to ensure every moment spent at the show counts – maximising the potential for commercial gain.

  • The Energy Solutions Trail identifies exhibitors offering solutions to energy buyers, influencers and managers, and guides visitors around learning opportunities for demand services, independent energy generation, and efficiency savings. Exhibitors on the Energy Solutions Trail include Babcock & Wilcox Volund, Niutech Environment Technology Corp, and JWC International. This trail will also link visitors to key speaker sessions in the Utilities Keynote theatre and the Utilities in Practice theatre.
  • The Water Marketplace Trail shines the spotlight on the suppliers, demand specialists and educational opportunities that offer solutions and innovation around water procurement, usage levels, reuse and effective management. Exhibitors on the Water Marketplace Trail include Phoenix Contact, Adey Steel, and Coveya. This trail will also link visitors to key speaker sessions in the Utilities Keynote theatre and the Utilities in Practice theatre.
  • The Local Authority Trail highlights all exhibitors and content relevant to those responsible for waste and resource management, and legislative issues.

Exhibitors on the Local Authority Trail include BeNomad, Welsh Government, and EPower Trucks. This trail will also link visitors to key speaker sessions in the Municipal and Materials Recovery Theatre.
  • The New Exhibitor Discovery Trail makes it as simple as possible for visitors to find the latest suppliers and technology most relevant to their sector. Innovation is central to RWM 2017 and this trail is designed to direct visitors towards thought leaders and innovators across the energy, water, recycling, renewables and waste management sectors. Exhibitors on the New Exhibitor Discovery Trail include Dong Energy Thermal Power, Molinari Recycling, and Garwood Europe.
  • The Great British Trail is organised in partnership with the UK Department for International Trade (DIT). A range of free tours will be available for international visitors to meet UK companies on the trail. Each themed tour will have a distinct focus on British innovation and design. Look for the Great British Trail logo onsite to identify UK exhibitors that are part of this trail. Exhibitors for the Great British Trail include CBS Waste Equipment, Spillard Safety Systems, and Middleton Engineering.

Divided into six zones – Supply & Demand; Energy from Waste; Recyclers & Reprocessors; Handling & Logistics; Data, Tech & Services; and Machinery & Equipment – the show will also feature an Innovation Hub, where exhibitors and start-up companies showcase the latest, most innovative ideas in the market.

As well as a return of the outside area at the 2017 show, key features at the event include RWM Connects, a complimentary matchmaking service allowing exhibitors and visitors to use our database to arrange meetings prior to the show, and the CIWM Advice Clinic, which will see industry experts on-hand over the course of the show offering advice and insight.

Meanwhile, the UK’s DIT is returning to RWM 2017 to offer visitors and exhibitors the opportunity to gain insight and advice about exporting products and internationalising their business.

There will also be the opportunity to have some fun at RWM 2017 by making use of the four-hole Pitch & Putt crazy golf course and bar at the back of Hall Five, sponsored by Adtrak. It’s a great way to network in a relaxed setting away from the hubbub of the main show.

Nicola Meadows, RWM event director, Ascential, said, “Visitors and exhibitors can look forward to an unmissable RWM 2017. We have been proactive in helping everyone who attends maximise the potential for commercial gain from the show, from networking to crossover, integration and collaboration opportunities.

“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. We look forward to welcoming back our many return visitors, and I encourage anyone who hasn’t visited the show before to join our community and become part of our movement to build a resource-efficient future.”
