SWANA, APWA to Co-Locate Shows in 2010

The Solid Waste Management Association of North America (SWANA) and the American Public Works Association (APWA) have reached an agreement to co-locate SWANA’s WASTECON and APWA’s International Public Works Congress and Exposition in Boston on Aug. 15-17, 2010.

The shows will share the same exhibition floor, and the associations are discussing granting attendees access to both shows’ educational sessions, according to Gabrielle Horowitz, marketing coordinator for SWANA.

“SWANA exhibitors will benefit from exposure to thousands of public works officials, many of which have responsibilities for solid waste programs,” said John Skinner, executive director and CEO of SWANA, in a press release. “APWA attendees will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of state-of-the-art solid waste equipment and services.”

“Boston is an exciting destination, and the public works and solid waste communities look forward to hosting this first-ever historic collaboration between APWA and SWANA,” said Jim Coppoal, president of APWA’s New England chapter and vice president of the Beat Group, Lincoln, R.I., in a statement.
