Delegates include representatives from Barclays, Black Tomato, BBCevents, London & Partners, George P Johnson, Banks Sadler, DRP, ExCeL London, Belron, Roche, Sportsworld, GES, Smart Group and Hurlingham Club.

The day will offer a mix of plenary sessions, table-top discussions and interactive presentations.

Rick Stainton, managing director of agency Smyle, is co-founder of the SES, alongside Positive Impact's Fiona Pelham. He said: "Over the past three summits we have seen the depth of knowledge in this sector grow and develop. Primarily this is because of the willingness of corporate brands, agencies and organisers to share their expertise at events such as the summit.

"This year we take learnings from the first two years and so take this engagement to a new level with challenging thought-leadership debates as well as sessions on the nitty-gritty of organising a sustainable event."

Event will be blogging live from the summit throughout the day here.
