The 2010 Sustainable Meetings Conference has opened registration with the ambitious goal of drawing 500 participants to Denver, CO., from February 9-11, 2010.
The conference theme, Scaling it Up, underscores the growing importance of sustainability in meetings and events.
“This conference is the opportunity for meeting organizers and hosts to address the sustainability issues that are redefining the industry,” says Green Meeting Industry Council (GMIC) president, Amy Spatrisano, CMP.
Part of the conference program will be devoted to a series of interactive learning sessions for meeting and event coordinators, centered on the APEX/ASTM green meeting standards, as well as the process learning methodology for sustainable event management.
GMIC will use feedback from conference participants to develop a green meeting professional training series and certificate program in the coming year.
