Andrew Lawson appointed AWRE event manager
Now in its eighth successful year, the Australasian Waste and Recycling Exhibition (AWRE) continues to go from strength to strength as an industry leading event for the waste and recycling community. To further reinforce its commitment to growth and innovation, AWRE has appointed experienced event manager Andrew Lawson to lead the show for 2017.
“We are aware of the need to continually evolve to match the ever-expanding needs of this industry,” Lawson explains. “Waste and recycling companies are constantly investing and innovating to improve processes and technologies. AWRE is designed to bring together product and service leaders to network, do business and facilitate the future of this vibrant sector.”
Lawson brings with him vast experience in the event management and exhibition industry in both Australia and internationally, including launching the Independent Hotel Show in 2011. This is now recognised as the UK’s leading business event for the boutique hotel industry. Recently, Lawson managed the 2017 Total Facilities event, positioning it as Australia’s most targeted industry attraction for the FM and workplace management professionals.
“My experience is largely in launching and developing business-focused events that unite the key industries they serve,” he explains. “We bring together an experienced team of event people and we are committed to developing and furthering AWRE through industry engagement and involvement, and delivering the most relevant event possible.”
AWRE 2017 will showcase the latest innovations and products across landfill, recycling and waste processing, organic recovery facilities and more. It attracts over 1500 industry professionals and exhibitors from across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, the UK and North America, who are looking for innovative ways to collect, sort and process waste from the municipal, commercial and construction sectors.
This year’s show will feature over 120 leading brands from across the waste and recycling landscape including the likes of Superior Pak, Toro Waste Equipment, Liebherr, Wastech and Applied Machinery. The upcoming 2017 event will also introduce a host of new brands that includes Joest Recycling, CD Enviro, Orion Integration, Smart City Solutions and Machinery Specialists.
AWRE 2017 is being held from 23 to 24 August at the Melbourne Convention amd Exhibition Centre. For more information go to www.awre.com.au.
