On Monday, Nov. 1, ISRI launched registration for ISRI2022 Convention and Exposition, the largest event in the recycling industry year-after-year. The convention will run March 21-24, 2022, in Las Vegas, Nev. Members can register now, and registration will be open to everyone on Monday, Nov. 8.

The recycling industry has spent the last two years connecting through virtual meetings and rising to the challenges of the changing world. In 2022, ISRI will bring its annual convention and exposition back live and in-person to the industry.

“It’s the first time in three years that the recycling industry is going to get its biggest networking program back,” says Chuck Carr, ISRI’s vice president of meetings and convention.

With over 5,000 recycling industry professionals anticipated to attend, and the largest exhibit hall of any recycling event during the year, ISRI2022 will provide attendees the chance to get updates on key industry issues and trends, as well as opportunities to acquire the latest equipment and technology. Attendees can also look forward to connecting with thousands of industry professionals through networking opportunities that have always been part of ISRI’s annual convention.

“Not only will we have our usual opening night party, but our after-hours programming is going to be stronger than it’s ever been,” Carr says. “The structure of the exhibit hall itself will be redesigned to provide more opportunities to sit and network. There will be a members-only lounge in the exhibit hall this year to allow members to meet up and bring in their clients in a space that’s more relaxed and more comfortable.”

ISRI2022 programming focuses on a wide range of topics for recycling industry professionals including hot-button issues like sustainability, untapped labor markets, fire prevention, transportation, and supply chain challenges and opportunities. Find a preview of the sessions here.

“We are so excited to be together in Las Vegas for ISRI2022,” says Stephen Moss, ISRI2022 convention chair. “This will be a great global reunion for the industry as we gather to learn about the recycling economy and to see in-person exhibits for the first time in three years.”
