A new AI and Robotics conference is set to run alongside RWM in 2019 as the most recent addition to the PRYSM Group’s Environmental Portfolio.

Last month saw more than 12,000 environmental professionals descend on Birmingham’s NEC to discuss the future of resources and waste among a host of exhibitions of new products and engaging talks and presentations.RWM 2019 to run alongside new AI and Robotics conference

The PRYSM Group, which purchased the RWM exhibition in January of 2018, will now be introducing Wastetech, a new AI and Robotics conference, to run alongside its existing suite of environmental exhibitions – RWM, The Contamination Series Expo, Marine and Coastal Civil Engineering Expo, Flood Expo and Future Resource – at the NEC again next year.

Wastetech will see the spotlight shone on what will be the next major evolution within the waste and resources industry. 2018 saw several AI and Robotics brands exhibiting at RWM, including the Circular Economy Award winner Machinex, which has been a leader in sorting technologies for the past 30 years.

This year’s RWM saw a larger focus on business development, and featured a new Business Growth Theatre to help businesses to stay ahead of the curve and be resilient in a competitive market, while over 350 seminars took place, covering the most influential topics in waste and resources, from the future of extended producer responsibility to how to stem the tide of plastic waste.
