The annual Vision:2025 conference will take place at The Showman’s Show on October 17, hoping to increase the momentum of festival industry communities working together to create more sustainable events.

The conference, hosted by industry think-tank Powerful Thinking, welcomes the 70+ festival organisers signed up to the Vision:2025 pledge to cut the environmental impacts of their events, together with key figures from the festival industry who will share their experiences and offer expertise and advice to Vision:2025 members alongside green-minded event suppliers and organisations that can provide networks of support around sustainability.
Paul Reed, CEO of the Association of Independent Festivals, kicks off with a keynote focusing on how collaboration can catalyse widespread behavioural change. Steve Heap, General Secretary of the Association of Festival Organisers, will host a panel of guests from Greenbelt, Fire in the Mountain, Shambala Festival and Broadwick Live – who will share their experiences of successful environmental initiatives at events this year.
