Experts‘     Conference

ENVIROMANAGEMENT 2015

Opportunities  and  Challenges   in  Solid  Waste

October 8 - 9, 2015, Hotel Patria, Štrbské Pleso, Slovakia

Dear Colleagues.

As in previous years, the conference ENVIROMANAGEMENT 2015 is tailored for decision-makers involved in the Central European waste industry – from both public and private sectors – seeking to benefit from the first-hand knowledge and experience of industry leaders with proven track records in their respective fields. The conference will be an opportunity to exchange ideas and stimulate open discussion, all within the stunning environment of the High Tatras, Eastern Europe’s renowned mountain region which rewards all those with an appreciation of scenic views and untouched nature and a penchant for the outdoors (from casual walkers to hardcore mountaineers)...

This year we are very pleased that ISWA´s president David Newman has agreed to be our keynote speaker – plus a few acknowledged experts from the industry well known for their holistic understanding of waste management. The conference will not present solutions driven by technology alone, but look beyond the nuts and bolts and facilitate transfer of system-wide and proven knowledge hence providing the attendee with the tools needed to implement holistic and integrated solutions in his/her professional area of activity...

A special session will focus on the solid waste management challenges when disasters strike, such as floods, earthquakes and epidemic diseases.

Main Topics

Kindly indicate your interest in:
 •  presenting an expert paper until JUNE 30, 2015
 •  partnership or sponsorship until JULY 31, 2015

The proposal for conditions of cooperation before and during the conference will be sent to those interested in commercial presentation and partnership cooperation following their expression of interest.

Finally, let me cordially invite you once again to the conference

“ENVIROMANAGEMENT 2015: Opportunities and Challenges in Solid Waste”

reminding you on the opportunity to participate in its expert program.


GABRIELA STUCHLÁWe are looking forward to meeting you in the scenic area of High Tatras.

Sincerely Yours,
