RWM 2018 returns revamped under new ownership.

Under brand new management, the Recycling and Waste Management Exhibition (RWM) returns to the NEC Birmingham in September, introducing a host of revamped features and a world-class line up exhibitors and speakers.

Recently acquired by PRYSM Media Group, RWM, in partnership with CIWM, is set to transform the NEC on September 12th and 13th, home to over 500 cutting-edge exhibitors, 14 brand new themed theatres and more than 350 expert-led seminars. Free tickets are now available online at

The largest recycling and waste management exhibition in the UK, RWM will run in a two-day format, to both increase the efficiency of the experience for visitors and improve return on investment for exhibitors.

For the very first time, RWM runs alongside four other leading environmental shows. Five of the UK’s most respected environmental trade shows have joined forces to co-locate at the NEC, including RWM, The Flood Expo, The Contamination Expo Series, The Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo and The Future Resource Expo; a brand new show set to inspire professionals working with high energy and/or water consumption.

As a result, over 22,000 professionals will flock to the NEC, with more than 1,200 of the sector’s foremost companies on offer collectively, as well as over 700 seminars.

RWM is rapidly attracting the industry’s foremost companies, including JCB, Mercedes Benz, Viridor, Veolia and Suez, all confirmed to showcase the latest and most innovative recycling and waste solutions. These will be presented across the five key zones returning to RWM; including Energy From Waste, Handling & Logistics, Machinery & Equipment, Recyclers & Reprocessors and Data, Tech & Services.

However, this year the show will present 14 new theatre themes, from Waste Crime to Local Authority Issues. Each theatre focusses on an area that is crucial for determining how public and private bodies deal with their waste both now and in the future.
Event Director Nick Woore said: “We’re working to totally transform RWM and make the already leading event bigger and better than ever before. This year’s event is unmissable for exhibitors and visitors alike, with more than triple the amount of content on offer, and access to all five co-located events.

“We’ve also launched two new sub-brands to target Local Authorities and SMEs looking to discover the latest and most relevant innovative waste solutions.

“Innovation is a key theme to RWM – we’re bringing back the Innovation Trail, which highlights exhibitors who are pushing the boundaries of innovation, and will also soon release the categories for the RWM 2018 Innovation Awards, which recognise and celebrate the most innovative products and services that are making a significant impact across the recycling and waste management industries.
“We’re bringing together the industry’s leading exhibitions under one roof. This is now an event like no other and must-attend for professionals looking to discover the latest products and trends transforming the market, network with professionals from across the globe and showcase their brands to targeted decision-makers.”
