Reflections of 40 Percent Symposium 2016

Thu 17 Nov 2016

To host the 40 Percent Symposium and bring it back to Germany as an international sustainability conference has been a great experience.

Thanks must go to John Pike who moderated the conference with ease and charm and to the EMA Events team that made sure that our schedule was followed with no delays.

I’ve talked to a lot of attendees to get their feedback which I like to summarise here....The Regent Hotel was a great venue and everyone felt at ease during the day enjoying and discussing versatile and interesting topics with great speakers from various countries. The delegates said they appreciate having this international symposium in Berlin, and the conference gives them insight into the actual political framework, current sustainability studies, and best practice experiences.  Attendees were quick to recognise the excellent networking opportunities during breaks and at the drinks reception in the evening.

I'm looking forward to planning the next 40 Percent Symposium which will take place in Berlin in April 2018.  The focus for the next conference will be on sharing practical examples, and further considering best practice.  I hope to see many of you there!
