Essential information for end of life vehicle dismantling, depollution and recycling


Don’t miss the IARC 2020

IARC 2020The International Automobile Recycling Congress (IARC) 2020 is set to be held at the Intercontinental Geneva in Geneva from 11th to 13th March 2020, which coincides with Geneva International Motor Show (GIMS) and if you register for the IARC 2020, you will receive free admission to the GIMS at the same time.

It’s worth taking a close look at the IARC 2020 program: The agenda includes 26 specialist lectures, a panel discussion and two corporate tours of the companies Thévenaz-Leduc SA in Ecublens-Lausanne and MTB Recycling in Trept, France. The conference will also be accompanied by a top-class trade exhibition.

The IARC will, of course, also provide plenty of networking opportunities and there is their networking dinner on the first evening of the conference to look forward to. 

By the way, you won’t have to miss out on any of our expert lectures at the IARC if you want to go to the GIMS because we’ve organised that for you as well. On Tuesday 10th March, i.e. one day prior to the IARC, we have reserved you a guided tour of the Geneva International Motor Show from 2pm to 4.30pm. And if you don’t have time on March 10, you are welcome to take advantage of our alternative date from 10am to 12.30pm on 13th March.

So make sure to mark the IARC 2020 in your calendar: in Geneva from 11th to 13th March 2020.  

All the information you need about the IARC 2020 including the program and registration is available
