The exhibition will provide delegates with an insight into key trends through its dedicated Conference Programme. With three conference theatres and over 100 industry speakers, Letsrecycle Live will ‘tackle key issues, address developments and identify opportunities’ for businesses and organisations of all shapes and sizes.
This will include discussions on waste crime – an issue that has plagued the sector for many years, and how regulators and industry bodies are working together to put a stop on illegal operators.
In addition to this, visitors can expect presentations from some of the most influential figures in the industry including senior waste management; regulators, and retailers, as well as local authorities and compliance schemes, as they provide presentations, debates and solutions on a range of topics for industry professionals.
One particular area of interest is the dedicated Plant & Machinery Zone; featuring the most up-to-date technology on the market. Delegates will have a chance to check out live demonstrations and speak with experts including plant designers and engineers; equipment manufacturers; engineer agents; components suppliers; together with safety and compliance professionals.
Meanwhile, the dedicated Collections and Transport area, connects local authorities and private waste operators with vehicle and collection equipment providers, where they can feast their eyes on the latest refuse collection vehicles, skip/hook loaders, bins and containers from leading manufacturers.
Visitors will be able to test drive vehicles from the likes of Dennis Eagle and other major players by putting them through their paces in the Ride and Drive Area to help make those informed investment decisions.
The show features three separate demonstration areas and will see material being processed live on site by a range of shredders, balers, screeners and more. Fireward will be leading demonstrations of the latest automatic fire suppression systems, while exhibitors will be presenting the latest refuse collection vehicles in the Trucks in Action area.
The first instalment of Letsrecycle Live intends to provide valuable networking opportunities in a fun and relaxing environment allowing businesses to come together and share industry knowledge and practice with one another.
One opportunity not to be missed is the White Collar Boxing fundraiser, commencing at Warwick Hall, Stoneleigh Park on Wednesday 22nd May. This event allows attendees to network with industry peers and cheer on the competition, as they watch waste professionals bout it out in the ring for a good cause.
All guests will get to enjoy a delicious three-course meal, wine and other treats with all profits going to Child Bereavement UK. Secure overnight parking is also included when you book your tickets via the Letsrecycle Live website, whether it’s an independent or group booking.
Delegates can also drop by the ‘Inn on the Green’ pub – A tongue in cheek reference to the old events down on the south cost at Paignton; offering further networking opportunities over some food and drink. This event is free to attend with a valid visitor’s pass.
Taking a more formal approach, the show’s Meet the Buyer event is a great chance for those wanting the best price for their materials to meet potential clients. Material buyers include wood, paper, metals, plastic and waste electric and electronic equipment (WEEE).
Additionally, visitors are invited to host their own meetings at the show and can take advantage of free bookable space, open for meetings between 2 & 50 people, providing a private space in which to work and do business.
