The programme will combine talks, panel discussions, roundtables and innovation showcases to empower these organisations to reduce the environmental impact they have.

Green Supplier and Innovation Award

For the first time ever, the 2018 Green Supplier and Innovation Award will be judged live at The Showman’s Show. Forming part of the Festival Vision: 2025 programme, the award will recognise companies who are best implementing practices that demonstrate sustainability. However, the three exhibitors with the highest scores will be shortlisted and be invited to deliver a ‘dragons den’ style presentation to a panel of judges that are experts in sustainability. The Green Supplier and Innovation Award was first introduced in 2015 in partnership with Powerful Thinking and has since been very popular with companies that are keen to show how environmentally friendly they are.
