Letsrecycle Live and Demo Expo rescheduled to September

In light of the ongoing pandemic, co-located events Letsrecycle Live and the Demolition Expo have been rescheduled to 15-16 September 2021 at NAEC Stoneleigh, Coventry.  

The event includes outdoor areas and demonstrations

The showcase exhibition and conference event for the waste, recycling and demolition sectors takes place every two years and was due to be held in May 2021. Now, with uncertainty continuing around the holding of events in the first part of the year, the  move to September has been confirmed by the organisers.

Optimism

Director of the Environment Media Group, the parent company of letsrecycle.com and organisers of the event,  Rob Mowat, said: “Following consultations with key stakeholders, we have made the decision to postpone Letsrecycle Live until after the summer holiday period. While there is cautious optimism surrounding the vaccination programme, the health and safety of visitors, exhibitors and the wider community remains our number one priority.”

Seminars will cover topics for local authorities, the recycling sector and the wider waste management industry

Mr Mowat added: “We are pleased to confirm the new dates which also allow us time to further develop the show and increase its overall size. This allows more space for exciting show features such as new arenas for demonstrations and more indoor and outdoor exhibition areas which cater for the increased demand for space we have experienced.

“We would like to thank our visitors, exhibitors and partners for their support and patience and look forward to welcoming everyone in September.”

‘Common sense’

“We’d like to thank Demo Expo exhibitors and supporters for their understanding.”

The decision was also welcomed by Howard Button, CEO at the National Federation of Demolition Contractors, who said:  “It is with heavy heart that we postpone the eagerly anticipated Demo Expo, but safety is paramount and common sense must prevail during these times.”

Mr Button continued: “With a new September date to look forward to, we continue to work closely with the team at Letsrecycle Live to create an exciting show for exhibitors, visitors and the connected industries to remember. We’d like to thank Demo Expo exhibitors and supporters for their understanding.”

Event

Letsrecycle Live and Demo Expo are free to attend and will offer two action-packed days of seminars, demonstrations and networking. The indoor and outdoor setting at Stoneleigh provides a unique environment to learn, socialise and build lasting business relationships with other industry professionals.

The 2021 event will take place at Stoneleigh Park near Coventry, on 15-16 September

More than 3,000 visitors and 160 exhibitors attended the inaugural event in 2019 with over 5,000 visitors and 250 exhibitors anticipated at the 2021 event.

The event is organised by the Environment Media Group, parent company of leading news and information provider for the waste and recycling sector, letsrecycle.com.
