These are peer to peer forums for conference organisers to come together to share best practice.  They give an opportunity to share recent experiences and, importantly, to formulate a collective view of the common challenges that lie ahead.    The meetings are ‘closed’ and Chatham House Rules apply.

Next Dates for the ABPCO Round Table Meetings:


Roundtable at the ICC, Birmingham 17th October 2018 from noon-2pm.

I am delighted to invite you to a very special round table discussion on sustainability in the events industry.

As you will know, we are collaborating with Positive Impact to see how we can influence change in the events industry, and this roundtable will give us a great platform for collaborating and moving forward.

At the event we will work on a roadmap for ABPCO members; which will be a visual plan that communicates where together we can recognise our influence in areas of economic, social and environmental impact.  We want to develop objectives, and ideas that can be used to take a sustainable approach.

The session will spend time looking at the UN 17 sustainable development goals, and collectively we will agree the key areas to create a roadmap for our sustainable future.

We are opening this to Full, Associate, Preferred Partners and our Sponsor only.

This initiative will be facilitated by ABPCO using materials created by Positive Impact so it is an opportunity for ABPCO leadership and collaboration

If you would like to secure a place, please email ASAP.

Thanks in advance to Linda and the team at the ICC – I know they will look after us really well, and have promised us a light lunch to help fuel our discussions!

I look forward to discussing this important subject.
