Vision: 2025 and Future Festival Tools present the Sustainable Events Summit hosted by The Showman’s Show on Wednesday 19th October, with a free to access expanded program of talks and interactive sessions.

The Sustainable Events Summit 2022 aims to shape climate action for the UK’s outdoor event industry, bringing together event leaders, policy makers, suppliers and experts to exchange ideas and consider future standards, launch new resources, and discover innovations.

The Summit is presented by UK event climate action steering group Vision: 2025 and Future Festival Tools, a project run by a group of leading organisations in events and sustainability from across Europe creating tools, resources & training for the festival industry. Future Festival Tools is co-funded by the Erasmus and Programme for the European Union and supported by The Events Industry Forum (EIF) and T&L Marquees.

The Sustainable Events Summit is free to attend and open to all: Register your interest in attending HERE.

  • Charity ecolibrium will host ‘The Direction of Travel in Live Events,’ bringing together a panel of guests to brief delegates on the latest research in cutting travel impacts from suppliers, artists tours and audiences.
