Over 200 speakers have been confirmed for the Resource Waste Management (RWM) show in Birmingham this year, including Secretary of State Eric Pickles and former Marks & Spencer executive chairman Sir Stuart Rose.
Now in its 47th year, the three-day event at the NEC will play host to more than 750 exhibitors displaying the latest industry products and services from 16th to 18th September 2014.
Organised in partnership with the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM), and supported by the Environmental Services Association (ESA), more than 13,000 visitors are expected to attend the show this year – including council officers, waste contractors and consultants.
Meanwhile, the show will make a transition to Halls 4 and 5 of the NEC in order to provide ease of access and allow visitors easier navigation of the exhibits. The halls are the largest exhibition rooms in the UK.
RWM 2014 will feature more than 70 seminars as well a new theatre that will play host to over 40 speakers across the three day event.
The Circular Economy Connect (CEC) Theatre aims to address the barriers to creating a more circular economy and will include talks from Nigel Marsh, global head of environment at Rolls Royce, James Walker, group head of innovation at Kingfisher, and current chairman of Ocado Sir Stuart Rose – who will deliver the keynote address.
Sarah Porter, divisional director for the environment events at i2i, which includes RWM in partnership with CIWM, said: “We’re delighted to announce Sir Stuart Rose as one of our keynote speakers in the new Circular Economy Connect area of RWM.
“He is credited with reviving the fortunes of fashion group Arcadia and will have a wealth of insights on stakeholder engagement and refreshing approaches to inspire our visitors with.”
Communities secretary and MP for Brentwood and Ongar Eric Pickles, is also due to speak on the morning of September 17th in the Local Authority Theatre, where he is expected to deliver his thoughts on TEEP, waste collection frequencies and how councils can meet ambitious EU recycling targets.
