The PRYSM Group confirms that RWM in partnership with CIWM, the UK’s leading recycling, energy, water and waste management show, has joined its Environmental Division, which already includes The European Contamination Expo Series, Hazardous Waste Expo, Land Remediation Expo, The Flood Expo and The Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo. RWM, the only UK event that brings together the entire industry, was acquired from Ascential plc. Commercial terms of the deal were not revealed.
Commenting on the acquisition of RWM, Event Director Nick Woore, said, “RWM is undoubtedly the leading exhibition in the global resource management sector, so to be able to add the show to our already incredible portfolio is extremely exciting. Waste, recycling and resource management is crucial to all of our lives and the significant contribution that this dynamic and innovative sector can make to the economy is increasingly being recognised by governments and industry.”
“This is an exciting development for RWM and CIWM looks forward to working in partnership with PRYSM to ensure that the show goes from strength to strength as the premiere showcase for the resources and waste management sector,” said CIWM chief executive Dr Colin Church. “We welcome PRYSM’s decision to invest in expanding its environmental business and there are clear synergies with other events in the PRYSM stable that will further broaden RWM’s reach and relevance.”
RWM takes place annually each September at the NEC in Birmingham, England and attracts over 500 exhibitors and 10,000 visitors from the UK and overseas – including from retail, leisure, construction and demolition, manufacturing and government organisations to name a few. RWM operates in partnership with the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM).
