EIC recognizes IMEX America 2021
The Events Industry Council (EIC) awarded IMEX America 2021, the largest trade show in the U.S. for the global meetings, events and incentive travel industry, a Platinum Level certification to the EIC Sustainable Event Standards.
The EIC Sustainable Event Standards are specific standards for environmental and social responsibility within the events industry. Created by the EIC Sustainability Committee in partnership with industry professionals and leading sustainability practitioners, the requirements provide event planners and suppliers with prescriptive actions for producing and delivering sustainable events.
“We are proud and excited to achieve the EIC Sustainable Event Standards Event Organizer certification to the Platinum Level,” said Carina Bauer, IMEX Group CEO. “Certification to the event industry’s highest global standards gives us not only recognition for all sustainability efforts, but also a roadmap for measuring and improving our sustainable event programs in the future. We’re also committed to the Net Zero Carbon Events initiative and are on track to publish our pathway to net zero by the end of 2023. All of these milestones rely on a collective effort. Without engagement from our partners, exhibitors, suppliers and more we would not be able to make such a positive impact.”
