Carpet Recycling UK Annual Conference, Dinner and Awards 10-11 July 2024

Collaboration and networking across the flooring sectors

Registration has opened for Carpet Recycling UK’s (CRUK) eagerly-awaited Annual Conference, at the voco® St. John’s Solihull on July 10th and 11th 2024 where collaboration across the flooring sector will be the main focus.

With a booking deadline of June 28, CRUK’s two-day event offers its members and wider network dissemination and networking opportunities for UK, EU and international decision makers from across the supply chain.

Representing 85% of the UK market, through their 138-strong membership, 17 key manufacturers and distributors and extensive UK-wide and international outreach, CRUK is helping the sector on its sustainability journey to reduce and recycle textile flooring waste while developing opportunities to create circularity within the sector through a more design for recycling-led approach.

The comprehensive programme will cover important updates on legislation and policy affecting the sector within the UK, EU and US plus updates on technology and research projects and EPR structures. Other topics to be explored include how collaboration across the wider flooring sector can help the sector advance to become more efficient and effective when it comes to the management of waste and sustainability.

A panel of industry experts and invited keynote speakers will deliver insightful presentations and discussions throughout the event. This year the conference will also provide sponsorship opportunities for organisations to highlight and promote their brand’s eco-friendly credentials and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability within the wider sector. Additionally, there will be a dedicated exhibitor area for companies to showcase their innovative products and services.

The evening event will allow for greater networking and collaboration opportunities, a relaxed evening meal followed by the popular Carpet Recycling UK annual awards. The awards have been developed to recognise and reward companies and organisations who are taking voluntary and proactive action to demonstrate and drive sustainability in the carpet and textile flooring sector. The categories are Reuse/Recycling Project of the Year, Most Sustainable Product of the Year, Circular Economy Initiative of the Year and for the first time are open to members and non-members.
