 This three day event is coastal BC's premier local conference on waste and recycling.
"Changing Times, Changing Minds" will bring together over 260 waste and recycling professionals to network and explore leading edge topics that affect the waste management, recycling and organics sector today.
 
We recognize that conference attendance is a significant investment in both time and money. We work hard to develop a program that benefits all and to keep the cost of attendance as low as possible (we have our sponsors to thank for that!). For those who have attended previously, you know that we provide great value, offering one of the most practical, advantageous and enjoyable events this industry hosts. If you still need to be convinced on why you should attend, Waste 360 published a great article on why Conferences are Key to Developing the Next Generation of Industry Leaders. I encourage you to read it and then share it with your team.
Our popular roundtable sessions have become a mainstay of Day 1; we expect this year will be no different.   Tours include the   Mustard Seed Food Rescue Project, Highwest Waste facility, Victoria Tool Library and the Lighthouse Brewing Company.
 
The conference will be held at the beautiful Westin Bear Mountain. At this time we have sold out the resort. Overflow rooms are available at the nearby Four Points Sheraton and a courtesy shuttle is available to transit between the resorts. Click here to reserve your room online.
 
Information on tradeshow and sponsorship opportunities is available here, or by contacting CWMA directly at the number below.
