Sustainable Events and Smyle have joined forces to create a new sustainable events community brand and a sustainable events summit for 2013.

Fiona Pelham, managing director of Sustainable Events and Rick Stainton, managing director of Smyle, have formed the Global Sustainable Events Summit Partnership, which aims to support a new community of events professionals who will be inspired to continue with their sustainability goals.

A summit is planned for January 2013, featuring educational content provided by Positive Impact, and is supported and advised by Seventeen Events.

Smyle’s Rick Stainton said: “This project is the next phase in Smyle’s sustainability journey – we believe that the recent investment and resulting activities by many key brands made 2012 the year sustainability really leapt into the core of event concepts. These experiences across numerous event genres should be harnessed, shared and built upon. This community and its summit aims to inspire this step change across the events industry.”
