Sustainable Future of Business Events

After several years of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are reminded of the importance of face to face gatherings, discussions and events that promote interaction among people, which is essential for the development of academic, commercial and other social activities. However, in order to hold sustainable business events, we cannot turn our eyes away from the burdens that the holding of these events brings. Cooperative efforts by all suppliers, inside and outside the industry, are required to limit environmental impact.
It is also important for the business events industry to remain sustainable, relevant, and attractive in order to engage and nurture the next generation of professionals in the industry. In the 5th Yokohama Global MICE Forum, we will discuss together with all industry partners about the way of hosting the sustainable business events and a sustainable working environment for the business events industry.
