We are pleased to inform that WMAM will be organizing the 4th Waste Management Association of Malaysia (WMAM) Annual Conference on the 6th & 7th April 2017  with the theme “Holistic Waste & Market Potential in Asia Pacific”. 

Holistic Waste Management looks at waste management as a whole from various perspectives ;  from production to final consumption covering all areas in  and around the waste management industry. The theme for WMAM’s Annual Conference 2017 in Melaka “Holistic Waste Management and Market Potential in Asia Pacific” is a platform to understand and learn the framework of holistic waste management.  This Conference will cover 7 type of waste and the business opportunities it could offer to various sectors. 

The huge market potential from holistic waste management is discussed by prominent local and international speakers. Key areas to be covered are as follows:
