ISWA Annual World Congress 2020

The ISWA World Congress is the most prestigious international congress for the waste management sector, and Rotterdam is proud to host and organise it in 2020, in partnership with the NVRD. In 2020, the congress will focus on a wide range of issues such as landfill, ocean cleaning and circular processes. These issues align with Rotterdam’s ambition to lead the pack when it comes to the circular economy. By 2050, waste will no longer exist in the city.


The World Congress 2020 will be held at the Postillion Convention Centre, Beurs-World Trade Center, an iconic structure with excellent congress and exhibition facilities.  It is centrally located in the heart of Rotterdam and is easily accessible by both car and public transport. The Central Station is located within 10 minutes walk or by subway in 2 minutes.
