Cop15 Copenhagen is being held on 7-18 December and the MPI event, organised by the association's CSR sub-committee, will take place on 11 December.

The MPI event will also examine opportunities for the events industry arising from Cop15 Copenhagen and the growth of CSR within the industry.

MPI UK and Ireland Chapter president elect Fiona Pelham said the organisers of Cop15 Copenhagen were using BS8901 to manage the environmental and social impacts of the event.

"We believe Cop15 Copenhagen will be a turning-point in the world's attitude to CSR and it is vital that MPI responds swiftly to analyse the content of the event," said Pelham. "The MPI event will provide a forum to analyse the outcomes of the summit and plan for the future."
