WasteExpo is rescheduled to August 10-13, 2020.

As a result of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID19) public health emergency, WasteExpo has been rescheduled to August 10-13, 2020.

The health and safety of our WasteExpo community is our top priority. The WasteExpo team is working through a comprehensive effort focusing on a managed postponement program to respond to the needs of the industry, the exhibitors, the attendees and all the other staff that work the shows during this challenging time.

We have made the decision to reschedule WasteExpo to August 10-13, 2020 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA.

This is not a decision we made lightly. We spoke to many of our partners, exhibitors, speakers and attendees, and the overwhelming consensus was that moving the show was most prudent.

We hope that this proactive and transparent move allows us all to conduct business in the less uncertain August timeframe.

We understand there will be questions and concerns following this announcement. For attendees, we will automatically transfer your registration to the rescheduled event. For questions and concerns, please contact [email protected]. We’re aiming to answer within 48 hours but due to a high volume of emails, please expect a slight delayed reply and thank you in advance for your patience.
