The Westin Peachtree Plaza - Atlanta

GMIC Sustainable Meetings Conference

The Sustainable Meetings Conference (SMC), hosted annually by the Green Meeting Industry Council (GMIC), brings together professionals from all corners of the meetings and events industry — planners, suppliers, service providers, and destination representatives — around a single mission: transforming an industry by integrating sustainability into the entire life-cycle of event planning and execution.

The event is an opportunity to gain new tools, share best practices and transferable lessons, network with peers and leaders in the industry, and get inspired to continue your efforts alongside like-minded professionals in the community. We invite you to join us June 17-19, 2015 in Atlanta, the first city to have its own GMIC chapter, for three days of empowered learning.

The Four Pillars of the Sustainable Meetings Conference

Active Involvement

The conference is really about idea exchange and collaboration. Working together, we will hear from experts and then collaborate to find game changing solutions to drive sustainability as a core practice of the event industry.

Responsible Thinking

The Sustainable Meetings Conference will be the premier showcase for sustainable events in the industry. Working with a dedicated group of people that are being specifically trained to create the sustainability program for the event, all attendees will have the opportunity to participate directly in the implementation of the best practices for sustainable events.

Creative Setup

This is not your typical event setup where you are forced to sit all day. We will create working areas, integrate partners and exhibitors and food and beverage into the content space, and get you up and walking around to facilitate thinking and collaboration.

Local Inspiration

San Fransisco is one of the premiere destinations in the world for sustainable practices. You will have the opportunity to get out and experience sustainability in action while getting deep dives into relevant content and sustainable business practices that you can take home with you and use immediatly.
