Details

Event update with regards to Covid-19: With the current coronavirus situation evolving daily and duty of care to delegates, speakers, sponsors and staff of paramount importance, we’ve taken the decision to postpone our pre-September events until later in the year. The new date for this Smart Class is Thursday 10th December (1.30pm-6.30pm). Smart Classes thanks all stakeholders for their understanding and support and wishes them good health (and calmness!) over this period of uncertainty and heightened anxiety.

WASTE MANAGEMENT Smart Classes show key buyer side stakeholders how deploying the latest digital technology-enabled solutions, data-driven strategies and best practices can help increase the efficiency of waste collection, separation and disposal, and facilitate the transition of the UK waste market to a circular economy. Delegates include commissioning, procurement, trialling and partnering leads, senior influencers, strategic decision makers and planners from UK waste collection authorities (WCAs), waste disposal authorities (WDAs), private waste contractors, local authorities (city, borough, metropolitan, district and county councils)/combined authorities and their waste management & recycling partners, retailers, health services, building and estate services, transport operations (and other major industry generators of waste), utilities and renewable energy providers, reuse and waste prevention organisations, prime contractors, central government departments and environmental agencies. Core themes range from collection vehicles logistics optimization, automated waste collection systems, smart bins and intelligent waste monitoring, analysing waste-related databases and new ways of aggregating, cleaning, visualising and sharing waste data, to connected asset management/using IoT to maintain assets, reuse and redistribution applications, innovative approaches to waste crime, digital waste tracking, sensor based sorting, robotics in recycling, AI based computer vision across the waste chain, smart waste compliance, ‘designing out waste’ in construction, waste-to-energy, applying blockchain technology to waste management, and new business models (e.g. digital sharing platforms, product as a service, sustainability as a service).

Following highly acclaimed 2018 and 2019 editions, WASTE MANAGEMENT Smart Class 2020 will now be hosted on the afternoon of Thursday December 10th. Delegates will hear from industry movers, shapers and disruptors during initial rapid-fire thought leadership presentations, before moving on to in-depth consultations with experts and peers during the roundtable discussions. Once again, this Smart Class will also feature up to 3 keynote presentations giving real world insight into collaborative initiatives, digital journeys and adoptions of emerging, transformative technologies in managing waste. This half day interactive event is free to attend for bona fide delegates satisfying our registration criteria.
