Wherever you live and work around the globe, three things are certain: sustainability is a hot topic, here to stay, and you have the opportunity to make a huge impact. Now, with the recent announcement by the CIC (Convention Industry Council), we also have reason to celebrate: the anticipated APEX/ASTM Environmentally Sustainable Event Standards are here! These standards are like a roadmap, helping you see where you are, identify your intended direction, plot your path, understand how to get to where you want to go, and celebrate your successes of your sustainability journey. If you already know about the standards, you realize how they will help event professionals – planners and suppliers alike – work together as we advance in our sustainable journey. If you’re just hearing about the standards, you’ll be glad to learn they are a check-list style that our industry will be able to use to make choices that are right for your organization, venue and events. Join this webinar to learn more about the standards, how they are structured, and how you’ll benefit from incorporating them into your daily work. You’ll hear how they were developed and what they can do for you and your stakeholders. You’ll also learn where to obtain a copy of the standards, and the next steps to integrating them into your event management, venue, and supply chain. Join your colleagues around the world as we discuss what the standards mean for each of us, our industry, and for your boss, your client, your delegates, and your suppliers.
