New action-focused Sustainable Events Summit heads to Showman’s Show 2022

Vision: 2025 will present a new action-focused conference format for the outdoor events industry when the Sustainable Events Summit 2022 heads to The Showman’s Show, Newbury Showground, on October 19.

With a programme centred around the latest research tools and knowledge, it will bring event organisers, academics, local authorities, and experts together, driving debate, resource development, collaborative industry standards, best practice and innovation.

Jeremy Lance, event director of The Showman’s Show, said of Vision 2025’s return to the event: “Driving forward innovation in sustainability is important to us as event organisers and to our visitors and exhibitors. It’s increasingly clear that paying lip service isn’t enough and that real changes need to be made. Vision:2025’s conference has become a key component in the industry’s response to climate change and we’re thrilled that The Showman’s Show has become its regular home and plays its part in facilitating the conversation.”

Details of the Sustainable Event Summit programme will be announced later in the summer. The popular Green and Innovation award will also return as part of the programme. Designed to highlight suppliers which are making a special effort towards environmentally sustainable practices, products and services, the three companies who make the shortlist will pitch to the event’s delegates and the overall winner will be decided by public vote. The award is open to every company exhibiting at The Showman’s Show and is free to enter.

The Sustainable Events Summit is free for visitors of The Showman’s Show to attend so save the date. You can register to attend The Showman’s Show here and express your interest in attending the Sustainable Event Summit here.
