Registration has opened for the first-ever Sustainable Design Summit (SDS), the world’s only forum dedicated to making sustainable choices easier for interior designers in the aircraft cabin, cruise and hotel sectors. The Summit will take place on 29 November 2022, at The Brewery in London.
Designers and customer experience experts from across the aviation, hotel and cruise sectors are invited to attend the event, where they can discuss and discover cross-sector interior design solutions to the world’s most urgent challenge: sustainability. Visitors can attend keynote conference sessions and participate in collaborative learning through round-table discussions to hone their personal knowledge and return to their company with actionable knowledge.
Register now for an Early Bird Pass, which gives access to the full SDS conference programme, including breakout sessions, round tables, networking breaks and a complimentary lunch. The Early Bird Pass also includes an invitation to the opening party of Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe, taking place at the ExCel centre in London the following day (30th November).
The SDS conference agenda begins with the keynote, titled ‘One Planet, One Mission: Tackling Common Challenges’, which will outline the sustainability challenges that unite the aviation, hotel and cruise sectors. Breakout sessions will offer specialist knowledge, including Circular Design 101, Colour, Material and Finish, and Sustainability Infrastructure: Ratings, Tools & Tech. Delegates can also dig deep into industry-specific challenges through sector breakouts. Learnings will be shared at a ‘Setting Our Intention’ session, where delegates can explore the drivers for change, what is needed to create change, and what’s next for sustainability.
SDS gives further practical learnings with the plenary session ‘Pitching to Stakeholders: How to Hold a Conversation About Sustainability’. Speakers will include Luke Pearson, co-founder and director of the PearsonLloyd design agency, Thomas Westergaard, vice president of Hurtigruten Expeditions, and Bryan Liska, director of design at Hilton Latin America & the Caribbean. The panel will examine how best to pitch sustainability initiatives, from stakeholder to audience.
