Quartz Business Media – organiser of the Cleaning Show – has announced the launch of a new event focused on resource efficiency and waste management.
The Resource Management Show will run alongside the Cleaning Show at ExCeL London on 19-21 March 2019, and will will offer waste and recycling suppliers the opportunity to meet the UK’s leading contract cleaners, facilities managers, local authorities, and a wide range of other cleaning and FM-related businesses.
Steve Diprose, managing director of organiser Quartz Business Media, said: “After speaking to a number of our existing exhibitors, visitors and suppliers, we have identified a real demand for a new event to answer current issues facing the resource management sector.
“Together with our partners, the British Cleaning Council, we found a number of compelling reasons to launch this new event: Brexit will require many companies to adapt their processes, particularly how waste management is handled in terms of trans-frontier shipments, exports and imports; the use of plastics is also a current hot topic, and a wide number of emerging technologies are being developed to break/shred/reprocess plastic materials; and Energy from Waste initiatives are continually evolving to offer effective ways of reducing landfill for many local authorities.
“Add to this new Chinese regulations, vehicles and machinery that utilise alternative fuel sources, and the increasing demand for cost-effective and environmentally friendly products across the cleaning, FM and waste management sectors and the justification for launching this event becomes very clear indeed. In addition, numerous stakeholders have commented positively about the bi-annual frequency and Spring positioning of the event. We look forward to welcoming new exhibitors and visitors in 2019.”
