edie Live 2016 opens for registration

Registration is now open for the UK's leading event for energy, sustainability and resource efficiency professionals, offering visitors a host of new features, networking events and high-level keynote stage.

edie Live 2016, formerly known as Sustainability Live, returns to the NEC Birmingham on 17-18 May, connecting people with the information, ideas and suppliers they need to make their business more sustainable.


Amanda Barnes, chief executive of edie Live organiser Faversham House, said: “edie.net has been serving this very audience for over 17 years as the UK’s leading digital resource. The launch of edie Live, building on the rich heritage and success of NEMEX, Energy Recovery and Sustainability Live, simply extends the essential business information we provide 24/7, 365 days a year through online, print and our portfolio of conferences and awards, to one holistic, two-day event.”

Seminars and theatre

The edie Live 2016 exhibition and conference will feature three practical, CPD-accredited seminar theatres, based on the key industry themes of energy efficiency, on-site 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, SMEs that have developed green technologies, systems or business models are being invited to enter the Innovation Zone competition, which is designed to promote and support innovation in the sustainability space. Submitting an entry for the 2016 Innovation Zone is free of charge, with the deadline set at 18 March.

Industry imperatives

On the edie Live show floors, Topic Trails will make a return visit this year, offering visitors free information-packed maps to guide visitors to the exhibitors who can answer specific questions and demonstrate their products and technologies.

“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,” added Barnes. “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.”
