Shaping the future of Festival Vision: 2025 at The Festival Suppliers Awards
Powerful Thinking and Julie’s Bicycle will hold the first Festival Vision:2025 Meeting at The Festival Suppliers Awards on January 26th 2017 at The Hurlingham Club, London.
The Meeting will bring together 30 plus Vision Festivals, events that have pledged to work together for a more sustainable festival industry, to shape the future of the 10-year Vision, and take part in professional skills workshops for their onward journey to more sustainable events.
The day will include workshops on reducing fuel use and energy costs, waste management, sustainable travel, and accurate measuring and recording of impact data by Julie's Bicycle, ZAP Concepts, and the sustainability teams from Shambala Festival, Festival Republic and Cambridge Folk Festival.
Alison Tickell, CEO of Julie's Bicycle, will host a discussion on the future of the Vision as well as giving attendees a broader perspective of the opportunity in the arts and cultural sector for climate leadership.
Guest speakers will include Richard Gillies, former Sustainability Director for The Kingfisher Group and Marks & Spencer, and CEO of Festival On The Wall, who brings insight into influencing the supply chain change in a client facing business.
There will also be space to network and share experiences as well as explore opportunities for collaboration and influencing the supply chain through collective purchasing.
The event is free for Vision:2025 Festivals who will also receive a free place to The Festival Suppliers Awards (normally £280), which are generously hosting the event, including drinks reception, evening dinner and awards ceremony — where Powerful Thinking Steering group member Victoria Chapman, Sustainability Coordinator for Festival Republic, will present the Green Supplier Award on behalf of Powerful Thinking.
There are still a few places available for the event. All UK Music Festivals are welcome to reserve a ticket providing they have taken the Festival Vision: 2025 pledge to aim for a more sustainable event. For more details contact email@example.com.

Gdpr (general Data Protection Regulations)
Members will have read lots about GDPR over the last few months. It is shortly to become law and you need to make sure you are up to speed. By far the best advice we can offer you is to look at the website www.ico.org.uk look at their section on GDPR 'Twelve Steps to Take Now'. This is taking the words straight from the horse's mouth and there is also a questions and answers section if you get into difficulties. It is not an onerous task, for most of our members it will hardly affect us, but there are some points there that need to be noted.

Everyone and their dog is talking about the new GDPR regulations coming in May this year. But very few people are offering you a concrete solution.
