At 10am CET – Ukrika from Wonderful Copenhagen and I are facilitating a session about sustainable destinations. Come and join us for the following discussion:
Engaging clients and partners to increase the sustainability of destinations
By 2050 70% of the world`s population of almost 10 billion people will live in cities. The vast majority of events are organized in cities, so what can the meeting industry do to make our event destinations more healthy, successful and ultimately sustainable. And how do we scale and speed up the implementation of sustainability programmes that we are seeing from pioneering cities around the world.
Join us on Twitter for an interactive conversation that will tackle and discuss the following 5 questions.
1, Why should we focus on creating more sustainable events destinations
2. What are examples of best practices from destinations around the world
3. What role does a CVB have in the creation of a sustainable destination
4. What are some of the barriers to creating a sustainable destination; and what are some examples of solutions
5. How do WE increase client demand for more sustainable destinations and services
