ULF safety measures to ensure you can focus on doing business

URBAN LIVING FESTIVAL 2024 is designed to bring together leaders from across this fascinating and growing sector of the hospitality and real estate industry to learn, share best practice and map the future.  

As it becomes an intrinsic part of the agenda for us all in the business community  - we at International Hospitality Media (IHM) are committed to making as many sustainable choices in the running of the business and event (where reasonably practical) as possible. 

IHM as a business looks at defining their long-term sustainability goals and strives to continually to improve the efficiency of its operations and the partners it works with so as to; 

- Minimise the use of energy and raw materials 

- Minimise and, wherever practicable avoid, the generation of waste

Highlighted below are some of the measures in place to ensure our impact on the environment is as minimal as it can be, and we encourage our attendees to travel and think “sustainable” for the duration of the event.

  • A focus has been made on using as little paper as possible, through the use of a bespoke Urban Living event app  - rather than brochure, floor plans etc…
  • The attendee badges for all those on the site are made from recyclable paper, and we will be collecting the lanyards and plastic pockets to re-use at the end of Day 2 
  • We encourage attendees to use public transport, walk or cycle to the venue - there are plenty of options including , Tube, buses and cycle/walking paths and storage.
  • A focus has been placed on all materials used by IHM and their contractors to be re-used, certain items have been hired rather than purchased too in the event space.
  • Coffee cups and food packaging provided by the venue catering contractor are all compostable.

“Attending the Urban Living Festival afforded me a refreshing approach to the operational real estate sector with a variety of sub-sectors being discussed and with debate around not only today’s challenges and opportunities, but also those of tomorrow.”
