The Best Responsible Business Event category is awarded for a business event that is designed, organised and managed in a way that minimises potential negative impacts and leaves a beneficial legacy for the host community and all involved.
Explained: The Best Responsible Business Event will recognise an event that has successfully combined environmental best practices, deliberate actions that deliver benefit to the local economy, and meaningful engagement of local communities. Any business tourism event that targets ‘out-of-town’ attendees such as trade shows, conferences, summits, conventions and exhibitions qualify to enter this category.
What the judges want: An inspirational event with progressive design and organisational practices that reduce the event’s environmental footprint and help to address community, social or environmental issues in the host destination. The event has measures of success and ideas which can be adapted by event organisers and host destinations around the world. All three core elements of responsible tourism are integrated into the conceptualisation and delivery of the event.
