Matching up

‘At Recycling Technik 2018, exhibitors have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with serious buyers and decision-makers from recycling companies as well as manufacturing enterprises,’ according to the organiser. ‘They have responsibility for various products and technologies to enable proper collection, sorting and processing of re-usable materials.’

Additionally, a matchmaking event in hall 7 will allow visitors to make meaningful connections.

On the ice…

The two-day expo also hosts a unique ‘networking on ice’ event on 7 November. Taking place at the next-door ice skating rink, delegates may enjoy many delicacies from a ‘pre-Christmas market’. Special activities include air hockey, reindeer rodeo and festive photo opportunities.
