Powerful Thinking - Festival Vision: 2025
It's an exciting time for event sustainability and Vision:2025. Many environmental initiatives and new resources have been launched in the last few months. This email has a round up of the latest.
Plus, Save the Date! After the success of the Vision:2025 members event in 2017 at The Showman's Show, we have teamed up with event organisers, Lance Publications, to offer another afternoon of talks, networking and presentations on a variety of key topics on Wednesday 17th October, 1-5pm. More info to come.
