GL events has launched a cross-industry research project on sustainability within UK events as part of its partnership with the Event Production Show later this month.

The aim of the research is to better understand the status of sustainability on event organiser’s agendas. It will also aim to ascertain the sources of the pressures and motivations to address sustainability issues, and the values of individuals and businesses.

GL events UK Group Marketing Manager Rachel Baker commented “This is a really important piece of research, not least amongst our corporate customers.” Sustainability matters increasingly occupy a more prominent and specific role in our clients’ briefs and invitations to tender. One of the things we want to establish through this research is an understanding of the commitment, long term, that the industry is prepared to invest in its own sustainability.

GL events will survey opinions from throughout the industry in the run up to Event Production Show, where it will canvas opinion among visitors to its stand. Following the show, the company will publish a white paper, sharing the findings of its research in order to advance the wider industry discussion.
