Sustainability at ContentTECH Summit

We know sustainability is increasingly important to our attendees and exhibitors, as well as to our market as a whole. Running ContentTECH Summit gives us lots of opportunities to improve our impacts environmentally, socially and economically in our host cities. We want to make our event more responsible and play a role in helping our markets improve its own sustainability through connecting people with the networks and knowledge they want to help solve the big challenges in our sector.

OUR THREE AIMS

We believe a sustainable event focuses on three key aims:

  • Inspiring Sustainable Development
  • Running an Environmentally Responsible Event
  • Running a Socially Responsible Event

Here are some examples of how we are implementing sustainability at ContentTECH Summit:

  • Conference guides are being streamlined and printed on 100% recycled paper.
  • We’ve reduced total printed signage (print signage being replaced with digital signage wherever possible).
  • We’ve eliminated paper speaker evaluations in favor of electronic scoring.
  • We are using 100% cotton reusable bags for our attendee welcome gift that can be used for groceries, storage and more.
  • We are offering our sponsors the opportunity to use our digital mobile app for their marketing collateral in lieu of printed marketing bag inserts.

OUR ONGOING PARTNERSHIP WITH THE ORANGE EFFECT FOUNDATION

Last but not least, we are proud to continue The Orange Effect Foundation as Content Marketing Institute’s official charity partner. OEF mission is empowering children and young adults with speech disorders to effectively communicate through therapy, education, research and technology resources. Our team supports OEF in myriad ways, including volunteering our time and resources along with fundraising throughout the year.

SUSTAINABILITY IN INFORMA MARKETS

ContentTECH Summit is part of Informa Markets and the Informa Group.  Sustainability at Informa focuses on the long term impacts we have on customers, colleagues, the communities we work in and the environment. 

Many of our stakeholders are clearly telling us that sustainability (social, economic and environmental) is something that is no longer a nice to have but a necessary part of any event.  We want to make sure we’re meeting those expectations and we believe that being sustainable is the right thing to do.

We also recognize that it’s not just about the way we produce our events and products but recognizing that we have a role to play in providing a space to work in partnership together with our markets to inspire the sustainable development of the industries we serve.  This is an ongoing process for us and we’re looking for ideas of how we can improve.
