Contamination Expo


Contamination Expo

Running for the third year in a row, the Contamination Expo Series saw its most successful show to date. PRYSM Group are proud of the show, and how it continues to evolve and grow year on year.

Moving the event to the bigger and more centralised NEC in Birmingham allowed for easier access to the exhibition and levelled the playing field for relevant visitors for whom a trip to the Excel in London previously may not have been possible. Because of this, the Contamination Expo Series witnessed an incredible footfall of 2701 delegates representing industries including asbestos, construction, emergency response, site remediation, safety regulators, local authorities and waste disposal. This footfall was bolstered by a further 700 delegates who registered for RWM this year, but have historically attended the Contamination Expo Series, highlighting how effective the co-located shows are at providing a broader delegate base.

Day 1 saw attendees queuing to get through the doors and take in all the Contamination Expo Series 2018 had to offer. The first day was kicked off by a three-pronged seminar by land remediation professionals Peter Atchison of PAGeotechnical, Michael Lunn of Environment Industries Commission and Seamus Lefroy-Brooks of the Land Forum. The packed seminar was an excellent start to a line up which included representatives from the European Space Agency, Environment Agency, UKATA, European Asbestos Forum Foundation, and concluded on the Thursday with a closing seminar hosted by Graham Finnigan of the National Ambulance Resilience Unit.

Alongside this diverse and informative seminar line up, a full exhibition hall provided attendees with access to industry-leading businesses displaying their latest and greatest in products and services. Neal Soil Suppliers, First Line Defence, In-Situ Site Investigation and i2 Analytical were just a few of the names in the hall, running stands alongside industry associations including Environmental Industries Commission and CL:AIRE.


I2 Analytical; Will Fardon – Business Development Manager – “It’s been a great experience, for us it’s a great way of meeting with a lot of our existing customers and also a whole range of potential new clients. The exposure it gives us to people we didn’t even know would may be clients, it’s a great way of building new relationships.”


With such success seen from the show’s first venture to the NEC Birmingham, next year is set to be even bigger and better than ever before. 90% of visitors said they would attend next year, reflecting how tremendous the event was for all those involved.
