Here at Endless, we figured it was more than time we talked about planning sustainable events. As an industry, it’s extremely important that we are involved in the discussion of topics that matter for the world. And it’s even more significant that we choose to look at the bigger picture and think globally. Both as human beings and event professionals, we must be aware that our actions have a certain impact in the world. And we also have the responsibility of trying to improve it through planning sustainable events!
So today, joining our amazing hosts Alex Plaxen and Lindsay Martin-Bilbrey is the iconic Fiona Pelham. Fiona serves as managing director of Manchester, U.K.-based Sustainable Events Ltd. She’s also the founder of the nonprofit Positive Impact, that seeks to provide education to support an earth-friendly event industry. Pelham is an expert in planning sustainable events, and sustainable meetings, who believes concerned people need to step up to the plate and make themselves heard. And on this week’s #EventIcons, the three will go deep into the topic of planning sustainable events. Are you ready to make a change? Then press play, and let’s go green!
We want to help keep you up-to-date with the latest and greatest!
