25-26 Nov 2020
Online Event



As of 18 March 2020


After many weeks of monitoring the evolving situation around Coronavirus (COVID-19), talking to the industry and consulting with our partners, we have made the difficult decision that the Australasian Waste and Recycling Expo (AWRE) will no longer take place on 26 – 27 August 2020. The success, as well as the safety, of our exhibitors and visitors, has always been our priority and this continues to be the case.

We put our customers at the heart of what we do, and this decision has been particularly difficult due to the importance of this event to our industry. Many companies rely on it to meet new and current customers. However, following the recent Government advice on social distancing, travel restrictions, and the logistics required before the event, postponement is unavoidable. We are in uncharted territory and carrying on with the current dates would not be in the best interests of you or the rest of our community.



We are committed to finding a solution to deliver an event this year to ensure business continuity to the waste, recycling and resource recovery sector. Details on when and where will be communicated directly with our community in the next month.

Please look for important communications from Diversified Communications and vendors that will include logistical details resulting from the postponement. We are committed to supporting the waste, recycling and resource recovery sector and our customers by offering the option to credit any deposits towards the future 2020 event. Our team will be in contact shortly with more information about exhibiting options for 2020 and beyond.

We fully understand and appreciate the level of planning that is required to attend the AWRE and would like to thank you – our exhibitors, speakers, partners, visitors, and the venue for your continued support and patience during this difficult time.

We will continue to support our community in any way we can and thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time. The strength of this community will persevere beyond Coronavirus (COVID-19).



For further information and queries, please contact the AWRE team.
We urge our exhibitors and visitors to refer to the guidelines and protocols as suggested by The Australian Department of Health and the World Health Organisation.
