The Waste and Sustainability Expo was held in conjunction with the KESAB Awards with over 20 exhibitors creating an excellent opportunity for the 300 plus attendees to speak with companies in the sustainability sectors and observe their products, innovations and services first hand.

A “Place-making” Speaker Session covering the topics of creative design and role in transforming spaces delivered by GroundPlay, and a particularly interesting presentation by Graeme Hopkins on how green walls can modify urban climate were well attended.
