Networking, Connections, Inspiration

Coast Waste Management Association Annual Conference is the premier waste management industry and networking event on Vancouver Island with attendees from across British Columbia and North America.

This popular annual event brings together leaders in the waste management community to exchange knowledge, inspire solutions, and build connections.

Two Formats | One Unique Experience

CWMA Conference 2021 will combine our favourite in-person format with our success in 2020 pivoting to a virtual event.

Every delegate will enjoy the benefits of our virtual platform and those who are eager/ready/able to attend in-person, will enjoy the traditional in-person format in whatever way we are able given the changing/current health directives.

The entire event will include livestreams, live-attended events, informal in-person networking rooms, pre-recorded and on-demand content so delegates can watch insightful sessions before and after the main conference days.

Our In-Person Conference Hall

Welcome to the Victoria Conference Center (VCC)! A stunning homage to the cultures and traditions that make Victoria a great place to connect. VCC is the city’s largest conference facility and can easily manage the potential variability we may face with changing local health orders. If needed, we can:

— Spread out a smaller number of people
— Fill a space with as many as we are allowed to have
— Adjust quickly with changing health orders

Our Virtual Conference Hall

Once again, we will be using the amazing EventMobi virtual events platform which delegates can easily access on any internet browser using their desktop computer, laptop, iPad, iPhone, or android device. Regardless of  attending In-person or Virtually, every delegate will use the EventMobi software for interactive discussion, q & a for plenary sessions, and other networking and connecting. Learn more about attending Virtually.
