Let the show begin
As the doors opened for the biggest event on the UK's environmental industry calendar this morning, the delegates flooded in.
Huge numbers were in attendance, making the most of the opportunities to network and do business face to face.
The combined three-day show offers an unparalleled spectrum of stands from a wide array of sectors, including environmental technologies, water, energy and contaminated land remediation and those who had come along for the first day were lapping it up.
A steady stream of lectures and seminars as well as an interactive debate on the future of the water industry offered high quality information for delegates to get their teeth into while deals were done and contacts made both on the stands and in more informal networking area.
The show continues on Wednesday and Thursday but is already off to a flying start.
Edie.net’s on-the-scene journalists bring you some of the highlights from today and will continue to report from the show for the rest of the week.
