Organised by Messe Frankfurt, Waste & Recycling Expo Canada, Canada’s only trade event that serves the waste, recycling and public works markets, along with Newcom Media, one of Canada’s premier B2B publishers & trade show producers, have signed a letter of intent to combine forces for future editions of the event. In addition to producing the Truck World trade show in Toronto, Newcom publishes the magazines Solid Waste & Recycling and Today’s Trucking. Together, Waste & Recycling Expo and Newcom form a unified whole that capitalises on Newcom’s strong relationships within the heavy duty transportation and waste and recycling communities in Canada. Working in collaboration, the two companies will begin planning for future editions and enhancement projects, including a heightened focus on education, training and product discovery for the industry. “We are extremely pleased with this partnership. By combining the expertise of two undisputed market leaders, Waste & Recycling Expo Canada and Newcom Media, we are reinforcing our position in the market to provide a comprehensive platform for the waste management, recycling and public works industries,” stated Konstantin von Vieregge, President and CEO, Messe Frankfurt North America.
