    EGF Conference to cover EVERYTHING necessary for the meetings industry to progress

    Just a few weeks away, the Event Greening Forum (EGF) is looking forward to an exciting and industry-leading conference to be held at Hackle Brooke Conference Centre, Johannesburg on 21 July 2016.

    Delegates in attendance at the EGF Conference can expect to cover a wide variety of topics that directly affect the sustainability and development of our meetings and events industry in South Africa.

    Sessions will delve into what corporate companies are after when it comes to event greening and what they expect from their service provider. Dedicated sessions will look into each and every aspect of the local industry and what needs to be done to improve its sustainability. From catering and transport, through to exhibition stand builds and audiovisual options, leading experts will be on hand to offer respected advice to delegates.

    EGF Chairman Justin Hawes says: “As the only conference of its kind in South Africa, we already know that delegates will find the information passed on at the EGF Conference will be far more valuable than the small cost of a ticket.”

    Hawes furthers the conference is an opportunity for event organisers and suppliers within this industry to join as one and action simple, yet effective, means to a more sustainable industry.

    The EGF is particularly excited that Roger Simons, Regional Sustainability Director at MCI and President of the Green Meetings Industry Council (GMIC), is the conference’s keynote speaker.

    As an added bonus, Simons will host a Sustainable MICE Excellence Masterclass at the SAACI Association Hub on 20 July 2016, the day before the conference. The workshop is aimed at venues and convention bureaus and planners, and will cover topics including: key leadership trends in MICE; sustainable food; ISO20121 – What it is and how it works; and how to communicate your sustainability strategy.

    This year, the EGF has partner with Greenpop and encourages delegates to offset their carbon footprint from attending the event by purchasing a tree at an additional cost of R120.

    Space is limited, so make sure to reserve your seat at www.eventgreening.co.za/events, or email Lynn McLeod on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.
