The Environmental Technology exhibition (ET) will celebrate its 20th anniversary, and confirm its position as the UK’s industry event within the environmental sector when it returns to the NEC Birmingham from 24th - 26th May 2011.

ET showcases the largest gathering of companies offering cutting-edge environmental solutions in industry anywhere in the country, with exhibitors drawn from sectors ranging from air pollution control and transport carbon reduction, to waste minimisation. The three-day seminar programme which runs alongside the exhibition, allows experts within the sector to impart the latest knowledge and best practice to delegates.

Faversham House Group, which organises the event, is keen to build on the annual success of the event — a success that is underlined by exhibitor enthusiasm. James Stoney, managing director, from Leading Edge Turbines who exhibited in 2010, says: “Excellent show in terms of quality and leads. Very targeted.”

Event director Donna Bushell says: ‘It’s a testament to the enduring success of ET that we’re now celebrating its 20th anniversary. With resource efficiency and new legislation being a key driver for the manufacturing industry to cut costs, investment in environmental technologies is essential for companies to maintain and strengthen competitive advantage.
ET has stood the test of time because of the fantastic opportunities it provides for delegates to network, discuss the latest developments, and find out about the latest innovations in the industry.”

ET is part of Sustainabilitylive!, and it will once again run alongside the National Energy Management Exhibition (NEMEX), the International Water and Effluent Exhibition (IWEX), Brownfield Expo (BEX), and Sustainable Business - The Event (SB).

ET will be held in Halls 3 and 3a at the NEC from 24th — 26th May 2011. For up to date exhibitor news, features programmes, information on how to exhibit or how to register for free attendance visit www.sustainabilitylive.com or call +44 (0)20 8651 7069.
