European Recycling Conference 2019

EuRIC – the European Recycling Industries’ Confederation – and FEDEREC kindly invite you to the third edition of the European Recycling Conference (ERC) on 19 September 2019 at the unique location of the Air and Space Museum in Paris. The conference will be followed by a Gala Dinner organized on a luxurious river cruise that will lead ERC attendees through the most iconic places of Paris.

Gathering traders, recyclers, consumers and machinery suppliers from all around Europe, this conference will offer unparalleled networking opportunities for business development. High level industry speakers, as well as representatives of the European institutions, will keep you abreast of the latest business and regulatory developments at European level. The priorities for the recycling industry in the coming years will also be discussed in the context of the newly elected European Parliament and forthcoming European Commission.

The ERC 2019 will also be a unique occasion to celebrate together the 5th anniversary of EuRIC’s creation. For companies and organisations looking to position themselves as key stakeholders in Europe, ERC will offer a variety of different sponsorship opportunities.
