Vision:2025 to return to The Showman’s Show in 2019

Want to join a community of like-minded festival organisers and suppliers working together to tackle their overall festival impacts? 

The annual Festival Vision: 2025 session returns to the Showman’s Show on Wednesday 16th October 2019.

The session is a chance for event organisers to get inspired, share experiences and meet innovative suppliers. This year for the first time the event will be open to events who are not yet signed up to the Festival Vision: 2025 pledge – through which over 70 events have pledged to am to reduce their CO2 impacts by 50% by 2025.  

This year’s program includes sessions such as ‘The Future of Food’, which will explore food waste, understanding the supply chain and sharing inspirational examples from the season. Additional topics on the table currently include the circular economy, insights on waste management practices and an industry briefing on innovations in energy management with the full program set to be revealed in early September.

Participants can also expect an exclusive preview of some of the new Show Must Go On Report findings and insights from the festival season with panellists presenting initiatives from a number of well-known UK events.

Once again, the three shortlisted exhibitors of the Green Supplier & Innovation award, co-founded by Energy Revolution’s founding organisation, Powerful Thinking, and The Showman’s Show, will be invited to present their sustainable products and services to the event organisers in attendance in a Dragon’s Den style format. 

In addition, there will be networking opportunities over a sustainable lunch and drinks reception at the end of the day. 

Chris Johnson, CEO of Energy Revolution and Chair of Powerful Thinking says: “The Vision:2025 event at The Showman’s Show has proven to be a great success over the last few years. We’re looking forward to returning this year with another set of interesting topics, bringing together organisers and suppliers and sparking some lively debate.”
