SWANA 2020 – Sponsorship Brochure

Reach for the Summit with the 2020 SWANA Canadian Symposium at the Fairmont Banff Springs. This opportunity only comes around every 10 years when  the SWANA Northern Lights Chapter hosts the Symposium in the majestic Canadian Rockies. As one of our valued partners, you will join over 350 delegates, 50 exhibitors and industry leading speakers from the waste and recycling sectors to blaze trails and reach peak performance. This is where municipalities, industry, suppliers and consultants from across Canada and the US come together.

The pristine mountain setting is sure to attract delegates to partake in training, conference sessions, tours and networking events. Our week together is about reaching for the summit. With new skills in Safety, Disaster Debris Management, Climate Change, Landfills, Recycling and Technology, delegates will leave equipped to summit new peaks in their own organizations. The Symposium is paired with a tradeshow allowing clients and vendors to reconnect in a beautiful setting and see what tools are available for their expedition.

With an incredible diversity in climate, geography, and regulations the Northern Lights Chapter knows what diverse skills are needed to reach peak performance in the waste and recycling sectors. You can expect dynamic speakers from across North America who will bring experiences and updates from their sector and industry.

As a sponsor you’ll be leading us up new trails and building new paths for your clients, and colleagues.
