Published April 2018

Conference 2017

This year's Carpet Recycling UK annual conference and awards, sponsored by Invista, manufacturers of ANTRON® Carpet Fibres, will be held on Thursday 5th July 2018 at Edgbaston Cricket Stadium in Birmingham.

In our tenth anniversary year, our programme will showcase the latest news on carpet recycling practice in the US, Mainland Europe and in the UK.

CRUK welcomes two key note speakers this year - firstly, we welcome back Bob Peoples of CARPET AMERICA RECOVERY EFFORT (CARE) to talk on latest developments there. CARE is the US membership association for carpet recycling, set up with the same challenge as CRUK - developing market-based solutions for the recycling and reuse of used carpet.

We will also welcome Dr Edmund Vankann of GEMEINSCHAFT UMWELTFREUNDLICHER TEPPICHBODEN (GUT) who will brief us on the new Circular Carpet Platform being developed on the continent.

Delegates will hear how carpet recycling is happening on a practical level in the UK; we are pleased to announce speakers Ellen Petts of award winning GREENSTREAM RECYCLING and Kevin Sibley of Carey Group's SENECA RESOURCE RECOVERY. More speakers to be announced in the next issue of our e-news, WATCH THIS SPACE FOR THE FULL PROGRAMME as it is announced.

Our conference attracts decision makers from across the carpet supply chain including manufacturers, recyclers, waste management companies, retailers and equipment manufacturers. Delegates confirm each year that the networking is valuable to their companies. In addition, here's what some of our delegates say:

  • "I enjoyed the event and I thought the speakers were excellent - I came away with much more than I expected"
  • "Excellent event and good quality of delegates"
  • "Just wanted to say a quick personal thank you for the event last week at Villa Park, which I thoroughly enjoyed"

We look forward to welcoming you again in Birmingham!
