Applications are now open for the IMEX-GMIC Green Awards 2015 honoring outstanding environmental and social initiatives. Jointly run by IMEX and the Green Meetings Industry Council (GMIC) and now in its 13th year, these awards recognize outstanding achievement in green meetings planning, sustainability and corporate social responsibility. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2015.
Awards span four categories: Green Meeting Award (small), Green Meeting Award (large), Green Supplier and Commitment to the Community Award. The Green Meeting Awards judge a specific event, based on a planner’s efforts to prevent and reduce environmental impact. The Green Supplier Award recognizes a meeting supplier that has made innovative efforts to reduce the environmental impact of their operations. And the Commitment to the Community Award honors those who have demonstrated innovative efforts to benefit a charitable initiative. International industry experts serve as judges.
Awards will be presented at the IMEX Gala Dinner at the Frankfurt Alte Oper, during IMEX in Frankfurt May 19-21, 2015.
