Participating Formats

Exhibition Stand

Our focused exhibition area has a limited number of (7) exhibition stands; as a result each segment of service/software providers will be represented by only a handful of booths. This helps each exhibitor to communicate more clearly their unique selling points as well as to stand out among the others and establish new connection in the industry. The exhibition stands by default come with power outlet, high-speed Wi-Fi connection, bottled water and of course table covered with cloth with the two chairs behind.

Delegate packages

The 2018 Sustainability Leaders Summit is an invitation only closed-door environment event with a limited number of seats in cabaret style. The delegate registration packs provide each registrant with the opportunity to listen to the crème de la crème of Europe’s Sustainability leaders’ presentation, receive the presentation files after the event, network with the movers and shakers of the industry and by establishing the right connection advance projects and achieve successes. By taking part in these discussions you gain knowledge and best practice cases that otherwise would be unobtainable outside the event grounds.

Sponsorship Opportunities

To get the absolute maximum from the Summit, a select few companies have the opportunity to join as official partners of the event. The organizing team creates the most beneficial atmosphere for negotiations with potential clients, handle pre- and post-marketing activities, allocate speaking sessions according to sponsors’ need and lots more. The companies not only invest in the status of partnering with the Sustainability Summit, they also collaborate in future projects and activities that help them secure even more leads or strengthen relationship with those acquired at the event.

Gala Dinner

On the first day at night, all attendees are cordially invited to a Gala dinner hosted by the organizers. Here, companies can talk to potential clients on one hand, while delegates on the other hand can further follow up conversations with their fellow attendees in an informal atmosphere with house wines and delicious courses.
