Increasing Social, Environmental and Financial Value
Symantec Vision 2014 Symposium was a series of events in Dubai, Munich, Paris and London.
The conference series focuses on IT professionals and provides specific content tracks, hands-on experiences and face-to-face interactions for administrators, managers, directors, C-level executives and small businesses.
MCI implemented a comprehensive sustainable event strategy to improve the delegate experience and to address the environmental, social and economic impacts of the Symposium. The Symposium achieved a waste diversion rate of 89%, producing an average of only 0.42kg of waste per participant. Moreover, Symantec also supported a legacy programme to sponsor and co-organise a Plant-for-the-Planet Academy that trained 40 children to be Climate Change Ambassadors.
Because of increased efficiencies and involvement in community engagement, the Symposium tracked at least €25,427 in sustainability related savings and had a total direct and indirect economic benefit of over €2million to local economies and communities.
The event series won the 2015 IMEX-GMIC Green Meeting Award.
