ISES NYC 2012 Sustainability Summit

There are some events that are worth attending and I think that this is one of them. When Johanna contacted me to ask if I could help spread the word, I was totally psyched to do so… and then my latest event popped up and I got totally swamped!

Rather than come up with my own post as to why you should attend this event, I am going to publish the original press release because it hits all of the high points and gets right to the heart of the matter.

The truth of the matter is, everyone in the events community should be producing sustainable events but we are not for a variety of reasons.

If this is something that is on your radar and you are even remotely within a stone’s throw of New York, you owe it to yourself to check out ISES NYC’s upcoming Sustainability Summit taking place next week.

Here are the details:

The time for sustainable meetings and events is here! At the renowned Rubin Museum of Art.
