ReBuilding Better

micebook Ventures was a sustainable summit for purpose-driven event industry leaders, themed around the concept of Rebuilding Better.

In addition to reducing our environmental impact as an industry, business events have an important role to play as a key facilitator in bringing together leaders in sustainability to solve challenges, share ideas and develop solutions. This was exactly our vision for micebook Ventures.

Re-Building Better

micebook Ventures 2022

As Eurovision 2023 host city on behalf of Ukraine, Liverpool was precisely the right time and place for this ‘Sustainability & Social Impact catapult’, designed to help the biggest MICE changemakers come together, face and debate what is an existential industry challenge, further complicated by the spectre of global recession and slow growth over years, not months ahead.

We focused on finding solutions for how the events sector can evolve to be a “Force for Good” – in the debating chamber with experts from outside the Meetings & Events ‘echo chamber’, through one-to-one buyer-supplier meetings, and live experiential activations through ‘practical purpose’; enabling event procurers start the process shift “from carbon footprint to carbon fingerprint”.

  • How can the events sector evolve to serve both society and major brands?
  • Should we be aiming to thrive, rather than to grow?
  • How can MICE experts pivot to Net Positive for long-term, sustainable success?
