RWM Rescheduled for November 2020

Resource & Waste Management (RWM) Event due to take place in November 2020


RWM - November 2020 post

RWM event organisers have taken the decision to reschedule the event to 3rd – 4th November 2020. The move follows close monitoring of government guidance regarding the COVID-19 pandemic along with feedback from stakeholders and customers.

The decision has not been taken lightly and comes after a long period of time working with the NEC Birmingham, CIWM and other industry associations to ensure that they can develop an event environment which provides both a safe and productive platform for the industry to come together.

Three months have been lost in the normal annual operating cycle, and by the additional time created by rescheduling the event later in the year, this will help us improve the planning, organisation and audience of RWM 2020.

The group has undertaken extensive research which has resulted in the resounding message from the market that RWM is a key component in reigniting the market after such an uncertain period.

Bradley Maule-ffinch, ROAR B2B Group Managing Director commented: 

“Our teams have been working hard to bring you an event in 2020 that connects the industry, showcases ground-breaking developments, innovations, and shares expertise & learning. We are committed to working with the industry to ensure our exhibitors and stakeholders are given a high level of customer service in this uncertain time. Moving the RWM dateline back by several months will allow more time to catch up after a few difficult months and put on the show that the market deserves.”
