RWM 10 - a bright prospect

As the industry gears up for RWM’s return to the Birmingham NEC this autumn (14 to 16 September 2010), official statistics published by the Audit Bureau of Circulations reveal that last year’s exhibition was a record breaker, attracting more visitors than ever before. In its fifth consecutive year of growth, RWM attracted 9781 visitors, representing an 8% increase on 2008. Exhibitor numbers were also at an all time high with over 500 stands.

Further analysis of the ABC audit reveals that the show’s international audience has grown by 9% and attendance by decision- maker level visitors increased by more than 10%, amounting to more than a third of the overall visitor attendance. Meanwhile a survey of RWM 09 visitors found that four out of 10 actually expected their budgets to increase, even in this tough climate.

“The ABC audit and the feedback from our visitors justify RWM’s reputation as the environmental sector’s premier event and explain why over 70% of stand space for this year’s show has already been booked,” said event director Gerry Sherwood. “RWM plays a central role as a business and ideas exchange for a thriving industry and we are working hard to ensure that RWM 10 continues to deliver a quality event for exhibitors and visitors alike.”
