Chapter II: ReWilding Your Business, Restoring Our World
micebook Ventures is a sustainable summit for purpose-driven event industry leaders, which is founded on the 1:1 buyer-supplier meetings model but with a unique twist, themed around the concept of Rebuilding Better.
Chapter I taught us how mankind has become the dominant, most destructive force on Planet Earth and that it is the responsibility of business big and small to play its part in tackling the impact, not only of the climate emergency, but of global inequality, political extremism, social deprivation and inadequate leadership.
Starting Monday 05 June 2023, the date on which World Overshoot Day is revealed, we’re evolving the ideas, education and solutions available to the particular needs of the Meetings and Events sector by exploring why we must avoid the Sixth Extinction of our rich and varied biosphere and what can we learn from Mother Nature about how we organise, measure and value the part of our lives that still occupies most of our waking time? After all: How can we do any form of business on a planet that is dying?
``Unless we give Mother Nature a seat at the business events table, carbon measurement and reduction are pointless``

Our world must now change with real pace and scale unless senior MICE professionals and their businesses are not to become dinosaurs by 2030. We must assume the responsibility of purposeful self-education, innovative design and decarbonised delivery processes; harnessing emerging technologies fit for the 21st century and learning how to give more than we take – for our employees, all stakeholders, future generations and, not least of all, the planet.
“Well done micebook for creating this event. Important conversations but what is clear is that our industry needs to speed up the pace in all these areas. I’m optimistic this can happen, but we all need to drive the conversation forward, we all have an obligation to transform our industry and at a much faster speed. Let’s keep up the momentum!”
“Ventures was wonderful – an inspiring experience that got the best out of me. The setting, the conversations and experiences all contributed to creating a safe space to challenge my thinking and focus my energy on the areas of development for Broadsword that matter the most to me.”
“A great event with lots of fantastic conversations around some of the most important topics of our time. A lot of work lies ahead for our industry, but one thing is clear, we can only succeed if we all work together and help drive change.”
“If we think about the big challenges that we are now facing, it can’t be a case of go alone and go fast anymore. It’s got to be go together and go far. It’s not just about making money. We need to recreate what success looks like and we need to work together in the ecosystem to find the best sustainable solutions. Is self-interested competition good for the whole of society today? Absolutely not because it’s very narrow in its definition of what good looks like.”
We are delighted to collaborate with micebook to bring this inaugural event to Liverpool. RCP Spaces at The Spine is one of our newest and most sustainable and healthy venues offering an unparalleled experience for delegates in the heart of KQ Liverpool- a multi-million pound city regeneration project. We look forward to welcoming all attendees for what is sure to be a unique and memorable experience in Liverpool.
