Founding partners supporting the event include Capita Travel & Events, Sportsworld, GES and Grass Roots. They will be joined by sponsors such as Guidebook, Leith’s, The Meetings Show, the NEC, Smart Group, Vista and XL Video.
The event will focus on sustainability in decision-making, procurement and supply-chain processes for live events.
This year’s summit will give attendants the opportunity to learn practical solutions to sustainability challenges. There will also be sessions focusing on sustainable business travel and event technology.
The summit is a partnership between Sustainable Events, Smyle and Positive Impact.
Fiona Pelham, managing director of Positive Impact said: "The enthusiasm of supporters for our 2015 plans was clear when we met at our recent Summit Partners and Sponsors Forum.
"The obvious engagement of the attendees, and the wealth of ideas that were tabled that day, have helped us to shape the programme for this year."
Rick Stainton, managing director, Smyle added: "This is a hugely impressive list of supporters and I am absolutely delighted that so many past sponsors are with us again this year.
"I am also very pleased that we are being joined for the first time this year by Guidebook as our new technical partner sponsor, event staffing agency Crewsaders and the QEII Conference Centre and Leith’s who are our venue and catering sponsors."
