Croke Park Conference Centre, Dublin
New Policy Directions: Ireland’s most important forum for today’s Waste Management Industry
The Sunday Business Post is delighted to be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of The National Waste Summit chaired by RTE’s Aine Lawlor. The continued success of this event is down to the guaranteed high quality of both national and international speakers discussing the most important topics of the day. The success of this event is also due to the dedicated continued sponsorship from industry leaders such as A&L Goodbody and The RPS Group and the extensive marketing campaigns. This year’s conference will not be about looking back at the past ten years but about looking forward to the next ten years and beyond.
The National Waste Summit is firmly established as Ireland’s most important forum for today’s waste management professionals, environmental managers, policy makers and senior business professionals. Ireland has come a long way in terms of waste management best practice, policy and legislation since the inaugural Sunday Business Post National Waste Management Summit back in 2003 but much more needs to be done.
There is no better place to debate and discuss these issues and problems than at this year’s National Waste Management Summit on the 23rd of November in Dublin’s Croke Park Conference Centre.
The Sunday Business Post is delighted to have confirmation that Minister Phil Hogan will be giving the Opening Keynote Address at this year’s Waste Summit whereby he will be discussing the government’s new Policies and Strategies in the waste sector.
