Sustainability at TOC Connect

We know sustainability is increasingly important to our attendees and exhibitors, as well as to our market as a whole. Running an event with an international audience gives us lots of opportunities to improve our impacts environmentally, socially and economically in our host cities.  We want to make our event more responsible and play a role in helping our markets improve its own sustainability through connecting people with the networks and knowledge they want to help solve the big challenges in our sector.

“We provide a global platform for the industry to share sustainability best practices – It is therefore our duty to provide the industry with sustainable events”
