Joachim-Quoden-EXPRA-Photo-cr
"The Waste Management Europe Conference is once again confirmed as an inspiring and high-level exhibition of leading waste management companies. A crucial space for the circular economy, which will make Europe more resilient and sustainable"
Joachim Quoden
Managing Director, EXPRA
WME-Speaker-ClaudiaMensi
"I was honoured to attend the Waste Management Expo in Bergamo as President of FEAD. The waste management sector plays a pivotal role in achieving the EU’s climate goals and FEAD represent all the value chain of the waste management sector in Europe. Achieving a circular and resource efficient economy requires major changes in our production and consumption models. Today, we know that all our efforts could be in vain without the contribution of the manufacturers. Without a proper design that also envisages the end-of-life of the product, there cannot be a real circular economy. Ecodesign must mean design for recycling and design that incorporates secondary raw materials as a rule in products."
Claudia Mensi
President of FEAD – European Waste Management Association
WME-Speaker-RichLoretto
"I did enjoy it. I think the set up was very professional and I enjoyed the auditorium."
Rich Loretto
Direttore Economia Circolare, Amazon
WME-Speaker-pattylabbate
"I truly welcomed the invitation to be among the speakers of the Waste Management Europe Conference, organized in the spirit of networking to move in the direction of the circular economy. I fully share the initiative, the need to spread the culture of recycling, of giving value to waste and transforming it into raw material. I believe that Waste Management Europe goes exactly in the direction of driving towards more conscious lifestyles and a new ecological economic model, and I am happy to have contributed to the success of this edition."
Hon. Patty L’Abbate
Vice President Commission Environment, Italian Senate
ElenaMaggioni-A2A
"The event was an excellent opportunity to share best practices in the field of waste management and cooperate in spreading a correct perception of the contribution that the sector can make to the circular economy and more generally to the country’s ecological transition thanks to the recovery of matter and energy."
Elena Maggioni
Head of Business Development and Transformation, A2A LIFE COMPANY
WME-Exhibitors-DEVA

"A very young but also very well-organized fair, it reflects the concept now required by the market. It is a good opportunity to make relationships especially in the territory and in a restricted environment. The Conference has developed to a very high profile and is an excellent opportunity for in-depth analysis of the issues of waste management, sustainability and the circular economy at a global level."
