The Guardian and BBC contributor Lucy Siegle will host a headline-making talk on sustainability at the 2017 Event Production Show.

Siegle is one of the UK’s most recognisable opinion-forming journalists on sustainability and consumer issues. She has appeared in the pages of The Guardian and Observer, and on BBC’s The One Show, taking on the issues of the day with wit, enthusiasm and a real world understanding.

At EPS, she will apply her forensic understanding of sustainability to the events industry, dissecting cutting edge sustainability science and how it applies to event profs, the renewables revolution and how to harness green marketing value.

“Sustainability is at for the forefront of the events industry, and a constant in our readers’ minds—the majority of whom will be on the show floor at EPS,” said Access All Areas editor Emma Hudson. “It was important to us, as we helped EPS’ organisers programme the show content, to bring a new dimension to the sustainable discussion. We want to show organisers the benefits of embracing all things green—not just for the future of society, but also for commercial success.

“Lucy is a thought leader and champion of these issues, and we are delighted to welcome her to the show.”

Siegle’s session will be held on Day One of the Event Production Show at 3pm on the EPS Main Stage. EPS 2017 takes place 1-2 March at London Olympia. Register now to attend.
