Social Events

The Waste 2023 Conference prides itself on providing networking opportunities for our delegates, giving them the chance to interact with other like-minded professionals in an informal setting. There are 3 social events delegates have the option to participate in: 

Welcome reception - Tuesday 14th May

Taking place on Tuesday 14th May from 5.45pm - 7.45pm, the Welcome Reception will take place outside among the outdoor exhibits at Opal Cove Resort (weather permitting). It includes complimentary drinks and light standing refreshments and will provide delegates the opportunity to catch up with old acquaintances and make new ones while browsing the many products and new technology that will be on display.  

Following the Welcome Reception, further entertainment will take place in the Horizons Bar from 8pm–11pm as part of our 'post welcome reception' function enabling delegates to continue their networking.

Conference dinner - Wednesday 15th May

The conference dinner will be held on Wednesday 15th May at Pacific Bay Resort with pre-dinner drinks starting from 6.15pm outside on the beautiful grounds know as the Fairway (weather permitting). 

To ensure everyone is in good spirits the dinner once again will be themed. The them this year is theme Superheroes & Villains!

This is a dinner where delegates DO dress up, so make sure you are not the odd one out and get organised early! Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed delegates.  

Free scheduled transport will be provided between venues at the start and end of the dinner.

Finale buffet - Thursday 16th May

The conference finale buffet will be held on Thursday 16th May from 6.30pm at Opal Cove Resort on the outdoor terrace (weather permitting) and in Horizons Restaurant.

Live music will be provided making the Finale Buffet the perfect relaxed networking opportunity for delegates to catch up with colleagues one final time before bidding farewell for another year.
