Vision: 2025 Conference @ The Showman's Show

In the run up to COP26, the ‘Journey to Net Zero’ conference will bring together trail-blazers from the world of outdoor event sustainability to share knowledge, working practices and look at new products and services to support organisers and suppliers tackling environmental impacts on their journey towards carbon net zero.

Showman’s Show organiser Johnny Lance states:

““We are delighted to be hosting the Vision: 2025 conference again. After the enforced break for our industry during the pandemic, it is more important than ever that sustainability is central to our plans to return greener and tackle the climate emergency facing the planet.”

The conference includes exclusive networking opportunities for Vision: 2025 event and supplier members and an open-to-all afternoon programme including a series of industry briefings examining context and new research from leading experts and organisations on; Net Zero, tackling travel impacts, energy technology and bioplastics. A session dedicated to Net Zero, hosted by Julie’s Bicycle, will ask how panel guests are implementing targets within an event context with Q&A for delegates to explore how to take this forward with their own organisations.  

In addition, the Powerful Thinking steering group will launch their Campsite Power Resource Pack for events. The conference once again hosts the Green Supplier Awards, in which three shortlisted suppliers with a proven commitment to reducing environmental impacts will present their innovative new solutions in elevator pitches to the judges and audience, who will vote to decide the winner.

Vision: 2025 chair Chris Johnson says:

“We are looking forward to bringing the event organiser community together this October; we will explore the changing context, share ideas and new solutions, and re-connect as a community taking action.”

Arena Group is this year’s Vision conference headline sponsor, providing the structure for the conference, and joining the Net Zero panel to give a suppliers perspective on the journey to meeting these targets. Award-winning sustainable brewer, Purity Ales, will be showcasing their range of responsibly crafted beers for the networking drinks.
