edie Live 2016: five days until doors open!

The final countdown to the edie Live 2016 exhibition has begun, with more than 120 industry experts set to feature in 33 sessions across two days at the NEC Birmingham on 17-18 May.

The UK’s leading event for energy, sustainability and resource efficiency professionals will offer visitors a host of new features, networking events and high-level keynote stage.


Amanda Barnes, chief executive of edie Live organiser Faversham House, said: “edie Live will cater for anyone whose organisation has to deal with the strategic as well as the practical aspects of sustainable business and resource efficiency – be it energy management, water, waste, corporate and social responsibility, or low-carbon innovation.

“The show will cover three imperatives of the industry: bottom line, compliance and reputation. It’s about driving organisations or businesses to look for higher profits in a sustainable manner, complying with legislative demands and ensuring that their reputation is protected.”

The edie Live 2016 exhibition and conference will feature three practical, CPD-accredited seminar theatres based on the key industry themes of energy efficiency, onsite solutions and resource efficiency. Seminar session titles include ‘Putting the O in ESOS’, ‘Next generation: leading the way in onsite renewables’, and ‘Making waste fashionable’.

Running alongside these seminars will be a free, strategic edie Leaders theatre, helping delegates understand the broader risks and opportunities for driving profit, innovation and brand value through sustainability leadership. Leaders theatre session titles include ‘Inside the mind of the finance director’ and ‘Making it happen: first steps to a new business model’.

Meanwhile, 10 potentially ground-breaking and commercially viable green innovations – all aimed at tackling sustainability head on – are bidding for the chance to win a £6,000 support package through the Innovation Zone. The Innovation Zone winner will be announced at the end of the first day (17 May).
