Exhibitions and Events: Accelerators for the Sustainable Development Goals

April 9, 2020

Presented by Mariela McIlwraith, CMP, CMM, MBA, Director of Industry Advancement – Events Industry Council and Lindsay Arell, Leading Strategist for Honeycomb Strategies

The UN’s (United Nations) Global Goals aim to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for everyone and they are calling on all organizations and companies to play a big role in meeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. Your business’s operational practices are just one piece of the impact pie. What if you created grassroots, company-wide movement with the potential for greater social — and business — impact?

The Sustainable Development Goals offer a framework for achieving a sustainable, equitable future for all. Join Mariela McIlwraith, CMP, CMM, MBA – Director of Industry Advancement for the Events Industry Council, to hear how the Events Industry Council (EIC) is demonstrating its commitment to driving bold change in the global events industry with the launch of the EIC Centre for Sustainable Events and hear inspiring stories about exhibitions and events from around the world that are accelerating action for the UN SDGs. Joining her for the discussion will be Lindsay Arell, Lead Strategist and Principal of Honeycomb Strategies.
