Through our partnership, IMEX and ICCA have always been committed to advancing the sustainability of the global business events industry. IMEX aims to achieve this through education, promotion, as well as their own initiatives at every edition of their trade show. We also aim to ensure that there is a strong CSR element incorporated into every event we organise - leaving a positive and sustainable legacy in our host destination is of huge important to how we approach the event management process!
IMEX has recently issued a call for all meetings industry professionals to voice their opinion on how global events can contribute to achieving the UN's SDGs by 2030. For the first time since the United Nations announced the SDGs in 2015, they will be holding a summit at the end of September to assess the progress of these Global Goals as they seek to achieve their 2030 Agenda. To help do this, they are inviting global industries to tell them what they as the UN can do to help each industry work towards the goals that have been set.
This is where ICCA Members and Friends come in! Through the work of IMEX partner Positive Impact Events, a short survey has been created and made available to the global events industry, giving all meetings industry practitioners an opportunity to voice their opinion on how global events can contribute to achieving the UN’s SDGs by 2030.
This survey has been made by the same team who made the UN SDG Global Survey, and all data submitted will be fed back to the UN for review at their upcoming summit. This is an amazing opportunity for us all, and we'd like to invite all of our global community to take part. It won't take too much of your time - no longer than 3 minutes! - and is completely anonymous.
Make sure you have a voice in the future development of our industry! Take the MyWorld 2030 Events Industry survey here.
