Sustainable Events Summit adds to impressive line up




A number of high-profile speakers have been added to the line up of the Sustainable Events Summit, which takes place on Friday 22 May at One Wimpole Street, London.

New additions include sustainability experts and event managers from Virgin Trains, Logistik, Amnesty International and MCI.

The summit aims to include interactive sessions to add variety and incorporate future technologies. New speakers confirmed include:
– James Wright, sustainable development manager, Virgin Trains
– Sarah Ben-Tovim, events producer, Amnesty International
– Dirk Mischendahl, director, Logistik
– Guy Bigwood, group sustainability director, MCI
 
The event will provide delegates with 50 practical actions, which they can take back to their organizations and will be chaired by Lucy Siegle, ethical living columnist at The Observer newspaper, and BBC One Show presenter.

“I’ve seen first hand how a sustainable approach can bring an event to life,” she commented. “I’m looking forward to hearing from leading industry professionals about the challenges and opportunities of making events more sustainable.”
 
With BS8901 now out for industry consultation as part of its ongoing review, this is an ideal time to learn more about the practical steps that can be taken to make events more sustainable. Anne Hayes from the British Standards Institute will be debating the merits of BS8901 with key industry figures as part of the afternoon session.
