The standout event of the year for contamination professionals is coming to London’s ExCeL in September.
Running on the 27th and 28th, the Contamination Expo Series will showcase the latest strategies, techniques and technologies that further the protection of the environment and management of contaminated land, water and air.
Finding the solutions to protect our environment is an imperative that both private and public sector organisations from across the globe are growing increasingly concerned with, and for good reason.
Pollution affects more than 100 million people and is one of the biggest killers worldwide. More than one million seabirds and 100 million mammals die every year due to pollution too.
That’s why around 2,500 contamination professionals from as far afield as Japan and the US will attend the exhibition and transform the capital into the hub of the industry over two unmissable days.
This highly targeted audience will be made up of high profile visitors from some of the world’s largest and most relied-upon environmental organisations, as well as decision makers from major international airports, councils, specialist consultancies, construction firms and land and property owners.
These visitors all attend looking for that environmental innovation or piece of expert advice that will allow them to steal ground on their competitors and prevent and manage contamination more effectively than ever before.
The impressive profile of the show’s audience hasn’t gone unnoticed by some of the contamination industry’s most progressive and relied-upon suppliers, who have added their names to the growing roster of inventive organisations choosing to reveal their most recent offerings at this year’s show.
As well as getting the exciting opportunity to sell their existing products face-to-face to a room full of prospective buyers, they can also get immediate feedback from their target market on any new products launched directly to the environmental sector.
That’s why 150 environmental firms will once again make up an unparalleled lineup of supplier exhibitors, all looking to strike up partnerships with the show’s visitors to help them transform their business and the way they manage contamination projects.
Among the exhibitors are influential and well known names such as DEME Environmental, the Landmark Information Group, the LK Group, Exova Jones Environmental, Dynasafe International and many, many more.
The lineup of supplier exhibitors is only matched by the schedule of 120 expert-led seminars taking place across both days of the event.
Unrivalled in the depth of knowledge and information it offers its attendees, talking at the event will be the likes of ERM’s Dr Alan Thomas on innovating site characterisation to reduce project risks and lifecycle costs; In Situ’s Janice Hiller on using real-time monitoring to optimise groundwater remediation outcomes; and Dr Chris Evans on breakthrough of chlorinated solvent treatment at pharmaceutical sites.
What’s more, every seminar at the Contamination Expo Series is CPD-accredited. For visitors, this means that not only will they receive invaluable industry insight from its movers and shakers, but also coveted CPD points – making the show’s schedule of seminars perfect for all contamination professionals looking to add to both their skills and knowledge.
If all that doesn’t quite make the show mouthwatering enough, there is also a plethora of interactive masterclasses, one-to-one advice sessions and insightful real-life case studies, with the chance for visitors to question and pick the brains of the industry’s major players, suppliers and influencers.
Moreover, this year’s Contamination Expo Series has put more emphasis on the areas that matter than ever before – firmly focussed on highlighting and demonstrating only the most efficient and cost-effective methods of preventing and handling contamination.
For the very first time, a visitor’s free ticket to the series will allow them to freely filter between six shows that are all specifically dedicated to a different contamination field: Land Remediation Expo, Spill Response Expo, Clean Air Technology Expo, Hazardous Materials Expo, Nuclear Decom Expo and Geotechnical Expo.
These six zones have been carefully crafted to ensure that each individual attendee is able to easily find the specialist knowledge and ingenious innovations most relevant to their contamination field, allowing them to make the most of their time at this action-packed event.
This means that any contamination professional – no matter which area they work in – will return from the show brimming with inspiration and new ideas on how to prevent and manage contamination.
Attendees will also have access to the Flood Expo and Marine & Coastal Civil Engineering Expo located next door, which makes this the most comprehensive, exciting and influential exhibition and conference on the environmental sector calendar.
The growing reputation of the Contamination Expo Series is highlighted by the continued sponsorship from the Environment Agency – who will be offering advice, guidance, support and unrivalled networking opportunities for contamination, sustainability and environment professionals in the Environment Agency Networking Area.
The public body will also be leading a host of their own informative seminars across the two-day event, with special guest speakers including the likes of their invasive species specialist, Trevor Renals.
To top if off, the Contamination Expo Series Innovation Awards will also be returning to 2017’s event. The awards celebrate the most outstanding examples of cutting-edge equipment, products and services that have made the biggest impact on the contamination industry over the past 12 months.
With all this and more packed into one room – at the show that has become the home of innovation in the contamination field – you can’t afford to miss this event if your work, business or land depends on you identifying, preventing and managing potentially life-threatening and destructive contaminants
