Sign up now for the 2018 Simply Cups Conference; December 6th at The Crystal, London E16 1GB
The fourth Simply Cups Conference sets out to examine the role of the supply chain, consumers and media in helping to address the issue of single-use cups. No one individual or organisation can do this alone, so how can business and society work together to create a system that captures and recycles used cups to the benefit of all?
Thursday 6th December 2018
The Crystal, London, One Siemens Brothers Way, Royal Victoria Dock, London E16 1GB
This year’s conference will be held at The Crystal; London’s most sustainable conference venue. Simply Cups Members can register for FREE by contacting Maddie Hickman or by calling 0808 168 8787. Non-members are now eligible to register at a cost of £29.95 per ticket.
This year we can announce a stellar line up of speakers and panellists. Our keynote this year is Lucy Siegle, who aside from writing for the Guardian, presenting on the BBC One Show and authoring a book, has become one of the leading voices campaigning on environmental issues and ethical consumerism.
One of the highlights of this year’s conference will be a panel debate, chaired by Lucy, that will examine the role that the industry, government, media, environmental lobbyists and the public need to play to find a long-term solution to cup recycling
Headline Sponsors of this year’s event is Sodexo, who are also the Event and Catering Contractors at The Crystal. We’re also delighted to welcome on board Gold Sponsors Costa Coffee, ashortwalk, Regency Designs and Simply Cups co-founders, Simply Waste Solutions.
