Recolight’s Nigel Harvey to share WEEE expertise at the UK’s first online lighting exhibition
Nigel Harvey, chief executive of Recolight, will be lending his expertise to the Lighting and Interiors Today (LIT) Lighting Expo.Mr Harvey will be delivering a seminar on how amendments to the Waste Electrical and Electronic (WEEE) Directive will affect manufacturers, and what measures businesses can take to increase recycling rates and boost their own green credentials, ultimately preventing waste lamps and associated products from entering landfill.
The LIT Lighting Expo is the UK’s first online lighting exhibition and will be running from September to December 2012. Mr Harvey will be joined by other experts in the field of lighting, including Philips Lighting and MHA Lighting, whose seminars will run for the first half of the exhibition, which runs from 28th September to the end of October. Mr Harvey’s seminar first broadcasts at 2:00pm on 3rd October and will be available on demand thereafter. Mr Harvey will then take part in a Q&A session based on the seminar.
Mr Harvey said, ‘Recolight is proud to be taking part in an innovative exhibition that will be accessible to both consumers and businesses free of charge. In response to, and preparation for, changes to the WEEE Regulations, Recolight is doing all it can to ensure that lamp recycling is made as easy as and as convenient as possible. Achieving the higher targets will require a joint effort, and Recolight is keen to help any organisation interested in contributing to this.’
The LIT Expo is focused on increasing flexibility, reducing costs and neutralising the carbon footprint associated with the traditional exhibitions, while saving visitors time and money and increasing their productivity as they stay abreast of developments in the industry. As well as the seminars, the LIT Lighting Expo will offer online exhibition stands for products and services from a range of companies.
