Add to Calendar

24 March 2020 - 8am PDT / 11am EDT / 4pm GMT / 5pm CET


It’s never too late to start your event’s sustainability journey! Join us for an interview with Mark Cooper, CEO of IACC and incoming chair of the Events Industry Council Board, to learn how the IACC European Knowledge Festival embedded sustainability into all aspects of the event’s design and earned a gold-level in the EIC Sustainable Event Standards. This case study includes a mid-course reset, when IACC decided to reposition the entire event towards sustainable education and practices well into the planning stages for the programme. Hear about how they engaged key partners, redesigned the education content, and examined all their event-related decisions through a sustainability lens.
