We are excited to share the dates for our 2023 Annual Conference, to take place again at the voco St John’s Hotel in Solihull on 21-22 June 2023.

We have reserved some accommodation for 20 and 21 June, please ask for advance details.
The PR from this year’s well attended annual conference held at the voco St John’s Hotel in Solihull created a stir in the trade media and we thought it would be of interest to give a brief overview so that you can see how far the messages the Carpet Recycling UK network are reaching!
CFJ’s Harriet Whitaker attended the 2-day conference on 29-30 June and has kindly covered the event in depth, with insertions in the October, November and December issues of the CFJ magazine. Harriet told us “The conference was a great opportunity to network with the rest of the flooring industry and understand the changes that need to be made to create a sustainable future”
CFA’s CEO Richard Catt commented “Compared to 10 years ago, sustainability is a daily discussion in one way or another. Carpet is still one of the main floorcoverings used in the UK flooring industry and within the domestic and commercial markets. I am therefore always happy to support CRUK and see enormous value in events like the CRUK conference. We need to keep the dialogue going and both recognise current good practice and opportunities, as well as develop new ones. In terms of textile floor coverings; reusing, recycling and diverting material from landfill, we recognise the important role that CRUK plays. CFA publish an annual Sustainability Guide (see www.cfa.org.uk downloads) in which we often feature content from CRUK and many other contributors across different flooring types.”

Thank you to all our 17 speakers for their consent to share their presentation content and we hope that this opportunity helps to grow visibility of all the efforts and progress being made by our member and wider network.
