About the Event

The Paper Recycling Confex MEA returns to its in-person format! The event to be held 14 March 2023 is part of a 3-day Confex comprising Metals, Paper and Electronics & Battery Recycling (14-16 March 2023). The conference is designed to provide regional and global market insight to delegates from the MEA region and beyond.

The event builds upon the series of successful recycling conferences co-organised by Waste & Recycling MEA magazine and the Recycling Today Media Group from 2012 through 2016, and the International Recycling Week Virtual Conference organised by Waste & Recycling MEA in 2021.

The forum, with an exclusive programme, brings together prominent paper recycling industry players to discover the latest global market trends, business opportunities and growth trajectory that will help improve competitive advantage of the businesses in the face of the changing scenario worldwide. 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 unique 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 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
