Seminar Workshop Programme

The NIIEX theatre welcomes everyone to this year’s exciting Seminar programme. We are delighted to announce a new format for 2018 that will allow all our delegates and visitors some additional time to visit the exhibition and live demonstrations.

We have divided the presentations into BLOCKS to allow you to pick and choose which sessions are most suitable for the roles that you are directly involved in and which will be of most interest. Hopefully, we have something for everyone across the two days and the six main seminar sessions.


GreenBridge Innovations Limited is a CPD Approved Centre so all our seminar sessions are fully approved in principle.

The Central Arena is a major enhancement for this event in 2018. Manufacturers and vehicle distributers are being invited to SHOWCASE their current fleet vehicles and this will afford many managers and purchasing officers the opportunity to see how these trucks and equipment actually performs. Demonstrations will be timetabled and the arena will revolve every two hours across both days.


The Driving Track has been secured and devised to allow suppliers to get potential buyers and interested customers to get behind the wheel or take a trip as a passenger in a variety of modern vehicles. Additionally, we are intending to showcase a range of Alternative Fuel Vehicles and these should be of extreme interest to future fleet managers.


As an additional feature this year we are encouraging many local manufacturers to arrange for “live” demonstrations of plant and equipment that is synonimus with our waste industry.
Having an up-close opportunity to see Shredders and Compacting machinery in ful operation and to get the chance to inspect the resultant waste stream should be beneficial to managers and controllers.

Additionally you can expect to see a range of installed handling and bin lifting equipment. Come and experience the chance to get up close and personal with many new technologies.
