Launched with Key Trade Associations

The Recycling Event has been launched with the involvement of eight key recycling trade associations. Taking place on 2 July 2019, it will be a cost-effective one-day major conference that is aiming to attract hundreds of delegates, to be held at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry, England.

Recycling industry trade associations have been heavily involved in developing the concept behind the event and are part of the editorial board that is devising the content for the four conference theatres as well as networking opportunities.

The trade associations involved are: The Recycling Association, Alupro, Confederation of Paper Industries, Resource Association, RECOUP, British Glass, Wood Recyclers Association and Industry Council for Packaging and the Environment (INCPEN).

The event will have four conference theatres. These are:
• Environment: for love or money? Theatre – dedicated to looking at examples of whether it is better to treat recycling and the environment as a market-based system or as the right thing to do
• The Delivery Theatre – a theatre looking at how we deliver the Resources and Waste Strategy and Circular Economy Package
• A Design for Lifecycle Theatre – how we design products for recyclability and the conditions necessary for using more recycled content will be looked at in this theatre
• The Market Intelligence Theatre – seminars and presentations dedicated to current market conditions and end destinations will be hosted in this theatre.

Finally, there will be an opportunity for the most cost-effective exhibition space in the recycling sector. For just £750+vat, exhibitors will get a table top stand including a table, two chairs, two event tickets and space for two pull-up stands. Spaces are limited and can be booked online. Day-to-day event organisation will be done by Hanicke Robins Sanderson with the close involvement of the trade associations mentioned.

The Recycling Association Chief Executive, Simon Ellin, said, “Trade associations have worked together to support this event, developing the conference content and networking opportunities. You won’t regret attending.” Confederation of Paper Industries Director of Raw Materials, Simon Weston, said, “By bringing all of the expertise from these bodies together, the content is likely to attract a large number of high-quality delegates and exhibitors.”
