Green Events & Innovations Conference
Due to a sell-out edition last year and the new level of interest in sustainability by the music and event industry, and more broadly, the Green Events & Innovations conference (GEI) is moving to a larger space within the Royal Garden Hotel in order to accommodate more delegates and provide more networking space.
A heightened awareness of plastics in our oceans, our food and our bodies; the health impacts of poor air quality; and stark warnings released recently relating to climate change, mean radical and rapid changes are vitally important across every industry and in our personal lives, too.
We are already witnessing unprecedented involvement from stakeholders (from governance, individuals and businesses) who are investing in tangible solutions. But so much more can and needs to be done. GEI11 will welcome representation from some of the top events and the best innovators, to share knowledge and experience; connect and network; and accelerate the transition of events and festivals from environment costly to environment friendly.
In addition, there will be focused break-out sessions for industry groups working on specific collaborative projects. And along with the larger space, the agenda is also expanding and will collaborate more closely with the ILMC Production Meeting (IPM), which takes place concurrently, thereby allowing delegates of both events to share knowledge and experience, and to network.
There will also be ample opportunities for delegates to network and connect throughout the day during refreshment breaks, the five-star lunch, and during the closing drinks that will no doubt continue late into the evening alongside delegates of IPM and ILMC, which starts the following day.
Please note that ILMC delegates can take advantage of a super-duper discount rate of £65 including VAT.
