Eventia Web Site

Eventia is recognised as the official trade body of the events and live marketing industry providing leadership and representation on important issues to Government, regulators and the corporate community. The association was created in January 2006, following the merger between two complementary trade associations: the Corporate Events Association (CEA) and the Incentive Travel & Meetings Association (ITMA). The British Association of Conference Destinations (BACD) was subsumed into Eventia from January 2009.

"As an engaging self-managed route to verified and measured sustainability performance improvement , SAVE provides an action plan that is do-able for all organisations within our industry regardless of service, size and budget.
A collaboration of theory and creative delivery that enables us to further professionalise within the wider corporate market whilst profiling our unique ability to engage and mobilise change - We are delighted to endorse it."

MUTA Web Site

MUTA is the trade association for the UK temporary structures and technical textiles industries, representing suppliers and manufacturers of textile products used in sectors as diverse as marquees, healthcare, aerospace and bouncy castles. The Association runs the health and safety accreditation schemes MUTAmarq, for hirers of marquees and temporary structures, and PIPA, for inflatable play equipment.

"Sustainability affects the everyday operations of all businesses – big and small – across the UK, but it is particularly important in the show and event industry where we operate on greenfield sites on a regular basis. MUTA supports the education and training of our members in sustainability-related work practices which benefit our venues, our clients and our own businesses and employees. The SAVE project will provide a step-by-step intuitive plan to achieving better show and event sustainability."

Tony Marsh, President - MUTA


ISES Web Site

ISES is an association that sits at the heart of the worldwide event industry, and is truly International with a network of over 7000 members across the world.

This network alone can provide enormous value in the current business climate, where we need people around us we can trust, people we know won't let us down. I believe, Trust and Collaboration are going to be the drivers in the event industry over the next 24 months.

"ISES supports any initiatives that help creative companies and individuals within our Industry marry sustainable practices with the very best in event operations. Save offers an excellent plan and support system to help bring these together plus the additional benefit of a soon-to-be-recognisable authentication tag to show a company’s solid commitment to sustainability."

"The new communication landscape demands a greater focus on impact and effectiveness. In this environment it is essential that we apply similar rigour to sustainability in communication. The SAVE initiative provides a clear roadmap to how as communicators we can integrate sustainability in our businesses. Sustainability isn't just "a nice to have" building the principles into all we do drives growth and profitability."
