| Programme | SEPTEMBER 22-23, 2020


At the conference hall you will receive deep insights from international expert speakers on the topics of Collection and Handing, Biowaste or Biological Treatment, Recycling, Waste to Energy and Green Recovery.


At the expo halls you are free to visit the virtual exhibiton booths of our partners. Take the chance and connect with experts, colleagues and friends.  Ask your questions to the representatives and get to know the exhibitors!


At the topic stage you will be able to watch presentations provided by our partners on-demand. Feel free to choose the videos which you are interested, and watch them any time you want to!


As with all online events, a virtual expo allows you to benefit from the almost unlimited reach of the Internet. By participating quickly and easily in an online trade fair, the number of participants can be increased many times over compared to a trade fair in attendance.

In addition to the range, the time and cost factor is a major advantage of virtual trade fairs: Where there are often participation hurdles at a presence trade fair due to travel (time factor) or the expenses for travel and possibly accommodation (cost factor), these are omitted at an online trade fair.

+ High range
+ Great cost savings
+ Flexible number of participants
+ Optional anonymity


Use virtual information and exhibition stands to inform your visitors about your company, your product or career opportunities, for example.

Your booth will be located in a virtual exhibition hall and is designed in the corporate design of your company. Flexible modules give each exhibition stand an individual touch, for example the stand modules video-screen, the document/download area, 3D-viewer or an in-booth meeting room for up to 5 people.


+ Perfect virtual exhibition experience with virtual information and individual exhibitor booths, entrance hall and lounge as well as a virtual conference halls
+ Handling of several participants/fairgoers simultaneously, by having real-life looking avatars
+ High performance streaming technology and video-conferencing
+ Comprehensive reporting for success measurement and lead generation at your exhibitor booth
