ReMA Annual Convention and Exposition to Make In-Person Return

Recycling industry’s largest event to take place March 21-24

(Washington, DC) -  The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) announced today that registration is now open for members for its Annual Convention and Exposition. ISRI2022 will return to an in-person format, taking place March 21-24 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event marks the association’s first in-person convention and exposition since 2019, due to the pandemic. Registration for all other attendees opens on Monday, November 8.

 “After two years of connecting virtually and rising to the challenges of the changing world around us, we are elated to be able to bring everyone back together, in person, for a bigger and better ISRI2022,” said ReMA President Robin Wiener. “Only at ReMA conventions can attendees gain unmatched industry knowledge combined with a network of lifelong friends who become family, the largest recycling industry tradeshow, and so much more.”  

More than 5,000 recycling professionals are anticipated to gather next March in Las Vegas. The convention and exposition will feature the largest exhibit floor of any recycling event during the year, dozens of educational sessions focused on the industry’s most pressing topics, the latest commodity market trends, day and night networking opportunities, and more.

ISRI2022 leverages some of the most popular attendee experiences from past meetings as well as new energy-filled features that are certain to raise the return on investment to an all-time high:

  • Sessions focused on sustainability, untapped labor markets, transportation, and supply chain challenges and opportunities;
  • Original ISRI member-only events, including an exclusive networking lounge;
  • A return of the popular ISRI after-hour activities;
  • An ReMA exhibit hall golf tournament; and
  • Much, much, more!

“We are so excited to be together in Las Vegas for ISRI2022,” said 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 3 years.”
