    BMA House host isla’s Venue Roundtable

    On Wednesday 21st February, we welcomed in excess of 50 top level event organisers & venues to take part in the second isla Venue Roundtable.

    You could really feel the passion for sustainability in the room bounce off each other, and people’s commitment to improving the events industry was truly inspiring.

    Guests were treated to a delicious low-carbon breakfast provided by our sustainable catering partner, Company of Cooks, which included mushrooms on toast with watercress pesto, teff grain crepe with crème fraiche, raspberries & London honey and a Green detox juice (kale, cucumber, spinach, lemon & fennel).


    Part I saw us delving into different frameworks relating to emission boundaries and accountability for venues, event organisers and suppliers across different key areas: energy, travel, materials procurement, and waste, catering and post-evet reporting.
    We had an insightful conversation about enhancing the collection and exchange of environmental impact data, with the goal of eventually creating a common venue framework to scale up across the entire events industry.

    After a short break, Part II saw us collaborate to develop the basis for an aligned, voluntary standard for measurement and reporting across isla member venues.

    We concluded the day with venues tours, showcasing the best that BMA House has to offer, including our industry-leading sustainable practices.

    Ellie Ashton-Melia, isla’s Community Lead, commented, “Thank you for hosting us yesterday, the roundtable was a huge success. The low-carbon breakfast was delicious, our members thoroughly enjoyed the venue tours too.”
