If you are looking for the key industry leaders in sustainable events, look no further. They will be gathering in Atlanta, Georgia, at the Green Meeting Industry Council’s Sustainable Meetings Conference.

Scheduled from June 17 -19, 2015, this event is known for attracting professionals who incorporate sustainable initiatives daily into their meetings and events. Planners, suppliers, vendors and operations managers, they have all faced issues and overcome challenges. This is the week they share what they have learned, both from the podium and in the hallways (where some of the best conversations take place at a conference).

Aaron Elliott, Sustainability Project Manager, and I will be among those learning, teaching and collaborating as our industry shapes the future of sustainable events. If this is your first time, we would be happy to buy you a cup of coffee and introduce you to fellow change agents.

We will also be tweeting about the #GMIC2015 Conference from @nancyjzavada and @meetgreen_aaron.
