Geiger hosts the first event of its kind – Geiger
On Tuesday 17th May, Geiger UK hosted Geiger Green Live, the UK’s first and to-date biggest event dedicated to promoting sustainable and eco marketing.
The Kia Oval in London, an award-winning venue and home to Surrey County Cricket Club, was chosen as the location for Geiger Green Live due to its commitment to sustainable practices in addition to its great facilities.
Some of Geiger’s top suppliers from across the world gathered under one roof to showcase their latest promotional product ranges and sustainability initiatives. An exciting itinerary took place throughout the day including expert speakers Tristan Edmondson, Head of Responsible Sourcing at Sedex and Lilian Wing, Global Business Development Director at TerraCycle.
Representatives from some of the world’s biggest brands attended the event and saw thousands of eco-friendly merchandise ideas whilst learning about the progress being made by the industry to encourage more sustainable marketing activities.
Managing Director, Vicky Kinasz commented “Geiger Green Live was an incredible showcase for us and our supply partners to show how far our industry has moved forward in sustainable merchandise – I thank everyone for their support and contribution. Geiger is committed to driving the category forward and leading the way, as we announced earlier this year with our Geiger Sustainability Pledge. This will become an annual event for us as we continue on our journey to make a positive contribution to the sustainable development of our organization, people and planet.”
Geiger’s participating suppliers were overwhelmed with the interest in their sustainable product ranges.
Matt Pluckrose from promo tech specialists Desktop Ideas commented “It was a great event – one of the best I have ever attended in over 25 years in the industry”.
