Waste expo supports industry transformation
Australia’s waste management and resource recovery industry is experiencing significant transformation as new government strategies and policies are adopted and more investments are made to address the country’s waste crisis. The federal government’s recent commitment to $190 million in funding for new recycling infrastructure provides opportunities for businesses in the waste and recycling industry and is expected to generate 10,000 jobs.
The 2020 edition of Waste Expo Australia arrives on the industry’s calendar at an important time. Taking place on 21 and 22 October in Melbourne, Waste Expo Australia provides a platform for navigating opportunities and changes in the sector.
Featuring 100+ speakers across three theatres, the free-to-attend conference will cover the industry’s most pressing issues, including impacts of COVID-19, approaches to transition to a circular economy and initiatives to achieve government waste targets.
New this year, Waste Expo Australia will have a dedicated Thought Leadership stream that brings together innovators to share powerful stories and forward-thinking strategies that will help strengthen the sector.
“Waste Expo Australia is all about collaboration, and it provides a unique opportunity to bring the industry together and hear from some of the biggest names in the sector,” Waste Expo Australia Exhibition Director Cory McCarrick said.
“The 2020 conference program was curated to deliver engaging and informative sessions and ensure that visitors can take these learnings back to their workplace and start implementing straight away. There is no other event that gives you access to this high-calibre content for free.”
Health and safety
The health and safety of exhibitors, visitors and staff is of paramount importance to Waste Expo Australia. The organisers of the event are continuously monitoring the COVID-19 developments and working with the venue and relevant authorities to ensure that attendees can do business in a safe environment.
