Organiser i2i Events Group has claimed its RWM show saw a six per cent annual rise in attendance, with more than 72 countries represented.
 
Building on its inaugural trade event last year, when i2i Events Group and the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) merged their respective exhibitions, this year’s show attracted more than 13,500 attendees (unaudited) to The NEC.
 
RWM also saw a 20 per cent increase in floor space, which played host to more than 700 exhibitors and 150 speakers including shadow water and waste minister Gavin Shuker and former government spin doctor Alistair Campbell.
 
“We are delighted with the numbers, especially in these challenging economic times, and exhibitors have reported quality leads and deals clinched on the stands, as well as valuable relationship-building opportunities,” said Alison Jackson, divisional director at i2i Events Group.
 
“This is a strong second year for our partnership and justifies our decision to respond to industry requests for a single high profile event for the resource efficiency and waste management sector.”
 
The show also held its first Renewables Event, co-located with The Energy Event and RWM, with an estimated 7,000 visitors. The Energy Event had an estimated 6,000 visitors.
 
The organiser is also considering a fourth show centred around water. It is also taking its expanded RWM exhibition into India.
