The inaugural Wastex Conference and Expo, held in May 2013 (now called Africa Waste Business), received support from several waste management and recycling industry bodies in the country. Among these is the Institute of Waste Management of Southern Africa (IWMSA). The Institute is an umbrella body for many of the organisations that supported Wastex 2013. As an expression of our gratitude for this support we decided not to stage Africa Waste Business during the same year that IWMSA holds its own conference, Wastecon. It has come to our attention that Wastecon, which is held every two years, will take place in October this year. We have thus decided to reschedule the next Africa Waste Business to 2015. The date will be advised later in the year.

We are sincerely grateful for the support given to Africa Waste Business by various industry bodies and wish to reciprocate same.

The Africa Waste Business Team.
