ISWA World Congress 2018

The annual ISWA World Congress is an opportunity to benefit from the knowledge and expertise of counterparts and colleagues from around the world, learn about new technologies, connect and share ideas. It is also about networking and making friends; many great links have been established between ISWA members internationally through our most important annual conference.


Since ISWA was founded in 1970, exactly 48 years ago, there have been 34 congresses in 25 different countries around the world. The 2018 ISWA World Congress is heading back to Asia. ISWA is incredibly excited to see so many familiar faces and reach out to a new audience in the region this October for ISWA 2018 in Kuala Lumpur.


The ISWA World Congress 2018 will be held in Malaysia 22 - 24 October 2018 at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. This year the Congress organising parter is WMAM, the Waste Management Association of Malaysia. Watch the welcome video from WMAM CEO and ISWA Board Member Mr Ho De Leong on YouTube.
