Innovation in waste management
Sharon Zittle, Senior Operations Manager, Informa Markets, Boulder
Pride and inspiration aren’t words typically associated with waste management, but they perfectly capture the work we do at WasteExpo. Each year over 14,000 people from the global waste management industry gather with more than 600 exhibitors. I believe our show has, over its 50-year history, ushered in more significant innovations in the industry than any other event, helping society deal with different kinds of waste in a more economical and responsible way. And the future looks even more promising. From big data to big trucks to bio-converters,WasteExpo is the place to be for the unveiling of new products and services.
But beyond those innovations, bringing the whole industry together once a year also helps people develop their skills by participating in more than 60 educational sessions. This year we’ll be covering topics such as recycling, waste-to-energy, food recovery, safety and fleet management. I’m also proud of WasteExpo’s new sustainability approach to our own event, which in turn encourages our convention facilities partners to improve their sustainability efforts so that all shows at that venue can benefit.
