Leaders of the Waste World returns

RWM returns to the NEC on the 11th and 12th September this year, bringing with it a huge programme of unmissable seminars and panel discussions. As the build for the event continues to grow, there is a huge announcement for one of the headline panels of RWM. 

RWM is ecstatic to bring back the Leaders of the Waste World panel to the event this year. After the astounding success and popularity of the panel last year, we are pleased to bring another unique opportunity to hear about the current state of the waste industry from the people at the very forefront of the sector. This panel will be made up of the leaders of three of the biggest waste management companies in the UK, providing a momentous occasion of having them all present at the same time and cooperatively discussing the industry as a whole.

Returning to the panel this year will be Suez CEO David Palmer-Jones, who will also be joined by new Biffa CEO Michael Topham and Phil Piddington, Managing Director of Viridor. This lineup of leaders will discuss the recent year within the waste industry, and will speculate as to what we can expect from the coming year. There really are no better opinions and assessments about the waste industry than from these three individuals, as they call upon their unrivalled experience in offering insight into the future of waste. 

With an already astounding seminar programme featuring Tom Szaky and Jeremy Paxman, the Leaders of the Waste World panel will be a huge draw for a large portion of the visitor base. Last year, the panel packed out the Keynote Theatre within minutes of the doors opening, and this year will be no exception. The Leaders of the Waste World panel debate will be held in the Keynote Theatre with the exact times to be confirmed as the event draws closer.
