The Scottish Event Campus (SEC) goes into The Meetings Show, taking place in London next week, with a promise: for every business meeting at stand C51, a tree will be planted in the Caledonian Forest.
The SEC is thus continuing its “one meeting, one tree” promise. The news comes following a successful IMEX where nearly 80 trees are already committed.

“We had a really positive IMEX earlier this month, met some existing customers, and hopefully some new organisers coming to the SEC,” commented Kathleen Warden, Director of Conference Sales, Scottish Event Campus. “Out of these meetings we’re now committed to planting just under 80 trees, and we’re hoping to plant well over 100 through the additional appointments we’ll have at The Meetings Show.”

The SEC recently also announced its ambition to achieve “Net Zero” by 2030 as well as its Gold Sponsorship of the Net Zero Carbon Events initiative. The enterprise, which commits event businesses across the globe to achieve carbon neutrality before 2050, is just one of a number of activities the SEC is involved in that encourage sustainable meetings within the venue. Furthermore, 100% of the venue's electricity comes from renewable sources.
