RWM show bought by The PRYSM Group

Published:  05 January, 2018

The RWM trade show has been acquired by event organisers The PRYSM Group to be run in partnership with CIWM.

The show, which in the past has been the leading UK trade show in the waste and recycling industry, was acquired from Ascential plc. Commercial terms of the deal were not revealed.

It has joined The PRYSM Group’s Environmental Division which already includes The European Contamination Expo Series, Hazardous Waste Expo, Land Remediation Expo, The Flood Expo and The Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo.

Event director Nick Woore said: ‘RWM is undoubtedly the leading exhibition in the global resource management sector, so to be able to add the show to our already incredible portfolio is extremely exciting.

‘Waste, recycling and resource management is crucial to all of our lives and the significant contribution that this dynamic and innovative sector can make to the economy is increasingly being recognised by governments and industry.

‘Running this event is an honour we are not taking lightly, and we will ensure that this exhibition leads the way for the industry tasked with delivering a sustainable future for our country.’

CIWM chief executive Dr Colin Church said: ‘This is an exciting development for RWM and CIWM looks forward to working in partnership with PRYSM to ensure that the show goes from strength to strength as the premiere showcase for the resources and waste management sector.

‘We welcome PRYSM’s decision to invest in expanding its environmental business and there are clear synergies with other events in the PRYSM stable that will further broaden RWM’s reach and relevance.’

RWM takes place annually each September at the NEC and attracts more than 500 exhibitors and 10,000 visitors from the UK and overseas – including from retail, leisure, construction and demolition, manufacturing, and government organisations to name a few.

A further announcement confirming show dates will be made very shortly.
