Submissions now open for IMEX-GMIC Green Awards

Applications are open for the prestigious IMEX-GMIC Green Awards 2015 honouring outstanding environmental and social initiatives. Jointly run by IMEX and the Green Meetings Industry Council (GMIC) and now in their 13th year, these awards recognise outstanding achievement in green meetings planning, sustainability and corporate social responsibility. The deadline to apply for the IMEX-GMIC Green Awards is 1 March 2015.

The awards span four categories covering key aspects of the green meetings sector: Green Meeting Award (small), Green Meeting Award (large), Green Supplier and Commitment to the Community Award.

Environmental awareness among meeting organisers is recognised by the Green Meeting Award, which judges a specific event based on a planner’s efforts to prevent and reduce environmental impact. The Green Supplier Award recognises a meeting supplier that has made innovative efforts to reduce the environmental impact of their operations. Finally, the Commitment to the Community Award honours those who have demonstrated innovative efforts to benefit a charitable initiative.

Nominations for the IMEX-GMIC Green Awards are judged by a panel of international industry experts and awards will be presented at the prestigious IMEX Gala Dinner (20 May) taking place at the Frankfurt Alte Oper, during IMEX in Frankfurt (19 – 21 May 2015).

Carina Bauer, CEO of the IMEX Group, comments: “The IMEX-GMIC Green Awards have been developed to recognise organisations within the industry that are excelling in their efforts to minimise their environmental and social impacts.

“As companies and planners alike seek out ways to give back to the local communities and destinations where they gather, these programme elements become ever more important to the overall impact of the event. We are proud to support and recognise such meetings and events that have a positive impact that goes beyond the meeting room.”
