The FIS/HIS International Conference 2022 has been designed with all elements of sustainability in mind.
Delegates may notice fewer physical items on-site, such as delegate bags, literature, and giveaway items to minimise the environmental impact that comes from single-use materials and the waste created by this.
Please bring your own lanyard from which to hang your badge.
Because of its single-use nature, there will be limited physical signage at the conference centre. There will be no external branding on the windows or doors of the Business Design Centre, and a handful of printed signage internally, to keep to the minimum of required signage to help our attendees get around the venue space. Our event team will be on hand to help direct attendees around the conference centre, and will be more than happy to assist. There will also be digital signage in place to help guide guests, which has a much less permanent impact on the environment. Any signage that is printed and hung in the centre will be diligently recycled post-event, to help minimise the environmental footprint.
Food and beverages
Working with the venue catering team, the Good Eating Company, the food served at the conference has been designed to make use of fresh, local flavours and with the environment in mind. All food and beverages will be served in plastic-free, compostable and Covid-secure packaging.
The food served will be predominantly plant-based with plenty of tasty vegetarian and vegan food options available, with any uneaten plates foods set to be donated to a local charity who then passes these meals out to the local population requiring subsidized food. Only vegetarian and vegan leftover portions can be donated for dietary and religious reasons.
All delegates are encouraged to bring their own reusable water bottles and hot drink keep-cups to refill during the event.
