‘Welcome back’ edition of the BIR World Recycling Convention in Barcelona: one of the most dynamic events in the history of our organisation
BIR Conventions remain the foremost meeting place of the international recycling industry, as was once again proven during our recent ‘Welcome back’ edition of BIR’s famous World Recycling Conventions. In the prestigious setting of the 5-star InterContinental Hotel in Barcelona, a record number of 1300 registered participants from 61 countries created one of the most dynamic events in the history or our organization. It was widely acknowledged that the programmes offered by the commodity divisions and committees, the social events as well as the networking opportunities surpassed everybody’s expectations, and the new format of an open-space plenary meeting area provided constant visibility of the important topics addressed in the meetings and the vivid interactions of speakers, panelists and the audience.
It is important to point out that BIR Conventions offer a wealth of information on markets, commodities and legislation. We therefore issue press releases and proceedings to sum up these very important facts and figures for our members to take home.
Tapping into the vast business opportunities of the Middle East was one of the many reasons why BIR decided to go back to the coveted conference destination of Dubai. This city never fails to impress and surprise, with constant innovation and superlatives while offering exquisite convention venues with all the amenities that make a bustiness stay feel like a holiday.
We will return to the venue of our last event in Dubai in 2015, the InterContinental Hotel at Festival City. Set in one of Dubai's cosmopolitan destinations with stunning waterfront and skyline views, this 5-star hotel offers an exquisite luxury experience with opulent rooms, topnotch dining with a Michelin starred Chef, award-winning SPA and renowned pool, as well as a 4250 m2 Event Centre. There is direct access to the world class Dubai Festival City Mall and the hotel is only a 10-minute drive away from Dubai airport.
Registrations will open end of July.
