With less than a month to go until the Letsrecycle Live exhibition and conference kicks off, we take a closer look at some of the exhibitors who are helping to make the new event the industry’s most anticipated show.
More than 150 exhibitors have already signed up to the event, which is taking place at the NAEC in Stoneleigh, near Coventry, with more than 3,000 visitors also set to attend.
And, with preparations now ramping up ahead of the show, a number of exhibitors have told letsrecycle.com some of the reasons they are getting involved.
UROC associate member, Boughton Engineering, has committed to participate in Letsrecycle Live and will occupy stand OUT 16. The company will show an example of its market-leading hook loader equipment with Kwikcova auto-sheeter system, alongside a Power-Reach PR18 skip loader with Intacova integrated sheeting system.
Boughton sales & marketing director, Steve Price said: “We hope that this new show will effectively fill a gap in the market which has been recognised for some time. The industry has favoured this dynamic and live UK event – in alternate years to the main European show, IFAT – whilst retaining the character of the original waste industry equipment show which used to take place in Torbay. Many visitors will feel some nostalgia for the organiser’s decision to recreate the ‘Inn on the Green’ and news of its return provided a compelling reason for us to be next to it”.
Meanwhile, Contenur, the global manufacturer of plastic waste containers and underground refuse systems, are also confirmed at the show and will be located on Stand Q1.
Contenur will be showing examples of their 2 and 4 wheeled bins and their Underground Refuse Systems. The company has been providing high quality containers to the UK market for almost 20 years and continues to be recognised as the market leader in clinical waste containers.
Neil Kavanagh, UK sales director, said: “We are excited to be part of this inaugural Let’s Recycle Live event and look forward to warmly welcoming our customers and visitors.”
Elsewhere, Refuse Vehicle Solutions Ltd (RVS) has announced that it will be exhibiting at Letsrecycle Live (22-23 May) and displaying a brand-new Mercedes/Dennis Refuse Collection Vehicle (RCV) from its RediTruck service.
RVS said its RediTruck service is an “outstanding success” thanks to its rolling stock of ready for work, FORS & ULEZ compliant trade waste vehicles that are available to drive away within weeks of an order being placed.
The company has a reputation for excellent service and high-quality vehicles, and offers the complete refuse vehicle solution to customers, including a substantial hire fleet, preventative maintenance service, repairs, breakdown service, parts, finance and vehicle transportation.
Paul Brown, commercial director at RVS said: “There is a lot going on at the show and it looks set to be busy. We hope it is a big success and we look forward to meeting delegates.
He added: “There’s no need for customers to go elsewhere as we can provide them with the exact configuration of vehicle they require, be it brand-new, Quality Used or remanufactured, and keep it running at optimum levels. We can even replace the vehicle when necessary or refurbish it to provide a second life.”
The venue consists of three conference theatres, two exhibition halls, three live demonstration arenas, a number of public and private meetings and a plethora of social events, meaning the show looks set to be the waste and recycling networking event of the year.
Some of the most influential people in the waste and resources sector will also be in attendance, including a panel discussion between David Palmer-Jones and Michael Topham, the chief executives of Suez Recycling and Recovery UK and Biffa respectively, along with Viridor’s managing director, Phil Piddington, and Jacob Hayler, executive director of the Environmental Services Association.
