The Event Greening Forum (EGF) proudly announces an exciting collaboration with SITE Africa, which aims to champion sustainability in the Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions (MICE) sector across Africa.

As two leading entities that foster sustainable practices, the EGF and SITE Africa have joined forces to raise awareness and drive positive change within the MICE industry. This strategic partnership will harness the expertise and resources of both organisations to promote environmental responsibility, social inclusivity, and economic viability throughout the event planning and execution process.

John Arvanitakis, Chairperson of the Event Greening Forum, expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration, stating: “This partnership marks a significant milestone in our mission to cultivate a culture of sustainability within the events industry. By aligning with SITE Africa, we can amplify our efforts to empower event professionals with the knowledge and tools to prioritise environmental conservation and community engagement.”

Tes Proos, President of SITE Africa, echoed Arvanitakis’s sentiments, emphasising the importance of collective action in driving sustainability initiatives forward. Proos remarked: “At SITE Africa, we recognise the pivotal role that sustainable practices play in shaping the future of the MICE industry. Through this partnership with the Event Greening Forum, we aim to inspire our members and stakeholders to embrace sustainable event management practices that minimise environmental impact and create lasting social and economic benefits for local communities.”
