About the Event

Waste & Recycling MEA presents a 3-day Confex comprising Metals, Paper and Electronics & Battery Recycling (14-16 March 2023).

The Electronics & Battery Recycling Confex MEA to be held on 16 March 2023 will be presented in an in-person format after two years of virtual gatherings. The conference in its new format provides regional and global market insight to delegates from the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region and beyond. The event builds upon two successful editions of the conference organised by Waste & Recycling MEA and Recycling Today Media Group.

WEEE is considered to be one of the fast-growing waste streams worldwide, and electronics scrap and spent batteries present serious environmental challenges, but they also provide great opportunities to recover and preserve valuable resources. As an exclusive forum for the electronics and battery recycling industry, the EBRC offers immense opportunities as international experts explore the latest market trends, challenges, investment opportunities and growth trajectory that will help improve competitive advantage of the businesses in the present scenario worldwide.

Prominent industry players will examine how the businesses can collaborate and strategise to overcome the hurdles and continue to progress, especially considering the rapidly changing business environment, regulatory requirements and varied conditions of trade, with the focus now shifting to circular economy models.

Major networking opportunities enable the industry to strengthen existing business partnerships and form new collaborations to unlock value across segments and drive sustainable growth.

By combining the best attributes of a Conference and Exhibition, the event delivers exceptional value in the form of industry insight, networking and access to information on the latest technologies and sustainable solutions. This creates a powerful environment for industry suppliers, traders and all other stakeholders to leverage sponsorship and exhibit opportunities to drive their brand’s visibility and reach.

Delegates can register for one session, or the entire event.
