The 2020 event was due to take place on 3-4 November this year, after it was postponed in June “following close monitoring of government guidance regarding the coronavirus pandemic”
The show’s organiser Roar B2B says it has now consulted with the event’s main partner, the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM), close advisors and partners and “came to the extremely difficult decision to postpone to 2021”.
Bradley Maule-ffinch, group managing director of Roar B2B, said: “It has been a difficult time… We look forward to revealing more news and information about the 2021 launch in due course”. The CIWM usually holds an evening dinner during the show. The Institution’s CEO Sarah Poulter commented: “This was a difficult decision to make for everyone involved but, as I’m sure everyone will agree, it is ultimately the right decision.”
Bristol-based event management company Roar B2B bought the trade show for an undisclosed sum in December 2019 (see letsrecycle.com story).
This was the second time RWM had been sold in two years, after fellow Bristol-based trade exhibition organiser Prysm Media Group acquired it in late 2017 (see letsrecycle.com story).Orginal Source
