THE POWER OF CHANGE STARTS W/C 8 NOVEMBER 

It's easy to talk about sustainability but not so easy to know where to start and how to measure the environmental impact of your events and discover the opportunities for positive event legacy. Our research shows that over 90% of planners felt that they wanted to gain more knowledge on sustainable supply chains, reporting efforts to their audience and reducing their carbon footprint. 

The course will give you the skills, tools, and knowledge to be able to plan and report with confidence and become an event professional that is championing the power of change. 

Sign up for the virtual open day on 23 September at 11:00am - 12:00pm (1 hour session)

MEET ANDY KING: CO-FOUNDER AT INWARD POINT

After the overwhelmingly positive feedback at The Meetings Show's keynote session last year we're beyond excited to have the one and only Andy King joining us to introduce each module and share his stories from his sustainability journey. 

Andy King has built his career as an experienced event producer that has spanned three decades and has helped top brands, foundations, and celebrities execute sustainable large-scale events and experiential campaigns. From catering his first wedding at age 16, he went on to become a sought-after event producer in New York City and was featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal as America’s first ‘corporate concierge’ for PepsiCo. Andy then co-founded Inward Point, a zero-waste event company, working with celebrity clients such as Leonardo DiCaprio and The Rolling Stones, and corporations including Disney, Goldman Sachs, Taboola, Victoria’s Secret, Vogue, and Vanity Fair.
