Glasgow 2014 environment and sustainability manager Gareth Talbot is set to join speakers including BSkyB, Cisco’s senior event marketing manager Ben Atherton and Siemens director – global projects Kevin Worster at the live event.

Meanwhile, All Party Parliamentary Group for events chairman Nick de Bois, Commission for a Sustainable London chair Shaun McCarthy, London 2012 head of sustainability David Stubbs and Concerto Group chairman Mike Kershaw will also share knowledge and case studies at the event.

Co-founder Rick Stainton, managing director at Smyle, said it was encouraging to see "heavyweight" industry support for the summit, but added that it was critical to keep up the momentum.

"It is heads down now and no complacency," he said. "The buy-in has been great and we don’t want to take our feet off the gas now."

ExceL London and Concerto Group have also confirmed their support as summit sponsors.

Excel London’s director of conferences and events James Rees said:  "As a business we are committed to tackling the challenges of how sustainable development will affect our industry now and in the future. This event provides a great platform for us to do this."

The new Sustainable Events Summit model was launched this autumn with a partnership between agencies Smyle and Sustainable Events.
