Recircle Awards Ceremony and Future of Retreading & Recycling Conference All Set for Bologna

The Awards Ceremony for the Recircle Awards 2023 is all set to take place on Thursday 16 November 2023 at the Futurmotive Expo & Talks event in Bologna, Italy. The ceremony, where 20 of this year’s 22 awards will be announced and presented to their deserving winners following this year’s edition of the now well-established Future of Retreading and Recycling Conference

The Awards Ceremony marks the culmination of an eight-month process, which commenced in March with the official launch of the third edition of the awards at TyreXpo Asia in Singapore, which featured the selection of the first eighteen award categories and the presentation of the first two awards to Christina Guth from the AZUR Network (Circular Economy Award) and Mr Chen Jet How, the ex-CEO of the Kit Loong Group, who was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award in the Tyre Retreading Sector.

The Winners’ Awards Ceremony in Bologna will see all the remaining winners receive their well-deserved awards in a live ceremony, which will be streamed live around the world. This will be the first time that the awards winners will be announced live, in an in-person ceremony. The winners of the first two awards events were announced in virtual awards ceremonies.

Hosting the Recircle Awards Ceremony and the Future of Retreading & Recycling Conference this year is Futurmotive Expo & Talks, the new event dedicated to technology and energy transition organised by Autopromotec.

The event will be divided into two parts, an exhibition and a conference, with a scientific committee that will identify the issues related to energy transition and innovation in the automotive sector. At the same time, Futurmotive will be a true exhibition dedicated to all businesses that are keen to meet at a European event that is the catalyst for 2023, with a space dedicated to networking with high-profile international buyers. Products and technologies related to innovation and energy transition will therefore have a clearly defined objective, visibility and focus.

During the three days of the trade show, Futurmotive – Expo & Talks will bring together participating companies in an exhibition space of approximately 25,000 square metres in Halls 14, 16 and 19 and in the 42 e 43 external areas, showcasing a full range of technological innovations and solutions to address global challenges in the automotive world, in a format designed to foster an effective interaction among companies, institutions and industry opinion leaders. The main areas of interest will be alternative fuel systems, components, equipment, tyres and new materials.

Renzo Servadei, Autopromotec managing director, provided a brief overview to the audience; “As we all know, one of the words that are most stressed in our time is “sustainability” and the automotive industry is put at the centre of this discussion. I believe that it is necessary to start thinking about sustainability in a broader way: it is a process that must certainly be addressed in terms of ecology, but also in terms of economy and community. In this context, as trade show organisers, we asked ourselves: what shall we do? How can we address such a complex issue? That’s how we thought about organising Futurmotive – Expo & Talks.”
