Representatives from brands including Roche, Barclays, Thomson Reuters, Bupa, Goldman Sachs, Samsung and Hewlett-Packard, and agencies including drp, Banks Sadler, Smyle, Capita Travel & Events, and Ashfield Meetings & Events have registered to attend.

"We're pleased with the numbers," said Rick Stainton, managing director of agency Smyle and co-founder of SES. "To get 125 people down to an event in a busy week in July, 20% of whom are brands, to hear about what is still a growing topic is very good. And the level of agency support at senior level shows that it's an important issue."

Speakers today include representatives from Samsung, Thomson Reuters, Goodwood, British Fashion Council and Capita. Sessions will be a mix of table-top sessions, presentations and advice from sustainability experts working across a wide range of industries.

C&IT and sister title Event magazine are the official media partners for this year's Sustainable Events Summit.
