RWM is the leading community for the Waste, Energy, Recycling and Water sectors to network, learn and trade. With over 500 exhibitors and 11,000 visitors from the UK and international reach from retail, leisure, construction and demolition, manufacturing, and government organisations to name a few, RWM is the only place these markets can truly collaborate for building a more resource efficient future.

The Exhibition is the coming together of four industry leading events – The Energy Event, The Renewables Event, The Water Event and RWM. Each of the events serves sectors that over time have become more intertwined.

Our mission is ultimately to build and enable a community towards a resource-efficient future by connecting the people, businesses and organisations who can make this goal a reality.

As we look to move towards a One Planet Living solution we must consider both the original source and the management of the resources we have available to us. Energy, utility and procurement managers as well as facilities, waste and building managers are all responsible for the solutions available at RWM today. With this in mind, we are bringing these key-players closer together, so they can share, learn and grow together for a more efficient and more effective outcome.

The new look RWM now has six zones that represent the Energy, Water, recycling and Waste markets.

Supply & Demand is a zone dedicated to the supply and management of Energy & Water. The Data, Technology and Services Zone showcases the latest technology, data services and professional services that bring the RWM industries together. We’ll also keep zones; Energy from Waste, Machinery and Equipment, Handling and Logistics and of course Recyclers and Reprocessors.

As well as the new zones we have revaluated our values and mission statement.
