5 Reasons to Exhibit
RWM, the UK’s largest trade show for recycling and waste management, returns on September 11th and 12th to the NEC Birmingham.
Alongside an illustrious speaker lineup, including the Leaders of the Waste World panel, NASA, TerraCycle, Procter & Gamble, Coca Cola, Costa Coffee, Keep Britain Tidy, The Co-Op, BBC Studios, and Clean Up Britain patron Jeremy Paxman; this year is set to be bigger than ever with the launch of new features like a dedicated Waste Tech Theatre, the evolution of the Zero Emissions Zone, and the return of Materials World.
If you’ve not yet witnessed the buzz and clear advantages of having a stand at RWM, then here are 5 reasons why to exhibit:
1. It is the UK’s largest trade show for recycling and waste management
Widely recognised as the biggest and most comprehensive event of its kind; if you are going to leave the office for any reason, then this is it. When attending, visitors expect the full spectrum of the industry to be there - you will miss out if you are not there or if you are not visible. Cement your position alongside other industry leaders.
2. Immense ROI
Meet more people than you would ever normally meet in the course of your normal working year. From just 2 days, exhibitors generate more leads, establish collaborations, grow their network or memberships, and learn revolutionary new techniques and practices. With the breadth of the industry in attendance, there is no surprise companies secure some of their largest trades at this event; a huge £1.9bn was traded last year as a result of the shows.
3. Substantial footfall
14,000 professionals are set to attend this year – this audience is made up of senior decision makers spanning a wide range of sectors from high waste companies, local authorities, government tenders, large blue-chip companies, SMEs and more. Co-located next to 4 other environmental and sustainability powerhouse exhibitions, the footfall is boosted to a phenomenal 22,000 professionals; all with free access to all events.
4. Networking opportunities
Considering the size of the show and the high calibre of visitors (90% being senior decision makers), then the networking opportunities are unparalleled. Not only this, exhibitors are able to utilise the RWM Delegate Acquisition team: a dedicated service that creates bespoke targeting campaigns to ensure your desired audience/market attend and find you there; if not before!
5. Exposure before, during and after the event
Every year professionals attend having already read about an exhibitor’s business because they saw it on: the website, the printed showguide, the digital showguide, mass coverage emails, partner emails, press coverage, social media, and more – RWM reaches every corner of the industry. Being part of the event, ensures you receive this extensive exposure. Don't just take our word for it, see what exhibitors who have before and rebooked have to say...
