REB Market Intelligence Summit 2018

REB Market Intelligence Summit 2018

In its seventh year, The REB Market Intelligence Summit 2018 has become a must-attend event for those who produce, collect, process or use recycled materials.

This year’s event takes place on 2 October 2018 at Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa near Liverpool.

REB Market Intelligence Summit 2018 will focus on the Resources & Waste Strategy, Simplifying the Recycling System and End Destinations for Materials. The full programme is below.

There are two ticket types – premium and standard. A premium ticket includes the full conference, attendance to our first ever pub quiz (including food) and a room at the luxury hotel. A standard ticket gives attendance to the conference only.

This year, we will be introducing the REB Market Intelligence Pub Quiz. Why not enter a team of five? Or if you are attending on your own or in a smaller group, we can put you in a team to help networking?

The pub quiz will take place in the evening after the conference and food will be provided. Can you think of a better networking opportunity? We can’t and that’s why we think you should prove your general knowledge while also getting the opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones.

For those who like golf, Formby Hall has a Championship Course that is the home course of one of the world’s best players Tommy Fleetwood. It is on England’s Golf Coast and is just a ten minute drive from Open 2017 venue Royal Birkdale and Championship Courses Hillside and West Lancashire. Alternatively, use the spa facilities at Formby Hall, take a walk on the beach or visit Southport or Liverpool.
