Events forum planned to coincide with key climate change event

MPI UK and Ireland Chapter is hosting a corporate lunch event to discuss the effects of the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference (COP 15) as it happens.
The event is due to take place on 11 December at London’s Barbican.
Key topics for discussion will include:
· The impact of the COP 15 summit on the meetings industry
· Opportunities from the COP 15 summit for the meetings industry
· Growth of corporate social responsibility (CSR) within the event industry
“In 2008, MPI was the first organisation to implement BS8901 for the sustainable management of an event, during its European Conference,” said MPI UK and Ireland Chapter president elect, and managing director of Organise This, Fiona Pelham. “This same management system will be used by the Cop 15 summit in what is likely to be the most significant CSR-focused event for years to come, attended by a host of world leaders.
“We believe the COP 15 event will be a turning point in the world’s attitude to CSR and it is vital that the event industry’s largest association (MPI) responds swiftly to the content of the event. This lunch will provide the perfect forum to analyse the outcomes of the summit and plan for the future.”
The Barbican event has been organsied by the MPI UK and Ireland Chapter CSR sub-committee, comprising:
· Kirstie McNulty – ExCeL London
· Sarah Matthews – Flanders Convention Bureau
· Jacqui Davies – Zurich Convention Bureau
· Fiona Pelham – Organise This
· Veruschka Becquart – French Convention Bureau
