Inaugural Sustainable Design Summit opens registration

June 23, 2022

(UK) – Registration opens for the first-ever Sustainable Design Summit (SDS).

Designers and customer experience experts from across the aviation, hotel, and cruise sectors are invited to discover cross-sector interior design solutions to some of the world’s most urgent challenges. Visitors will 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.

Access to the full industry-leading SDS conference programme, including breakout sessions, round tables, networking breaks, and the complimentary lunch, is available through the Early Bird Pass. The Early Bird Pass also grants delegates an invitation to the exclusive Cruise Ship Interiors Expo Europe Opening Party.

The SDS conference agenda has been carefully curated to inspire, educate, and guide. The Keynote: One Planet, One Mission: Tackling Common Challenges identifies the sustainability challenges that unite the aviation, hotel, and cruise sectors. Breakout sessions include opportunities to learn specialist knowledge, including Circular Design 101, Colour, Material and Finish, and Sustainability Infrastructure: Ratings, Tools & Tech. SDS also presents the opportunity for delegates to dig deep into industry-specific challenges through sector breakouts. Learnings will be shared at Setting Our Intention, where delegates explore the drivers for change, what’s needed, and what’s next.

SDS looks beyond blue sky thinking with the important Plenary Pitching to Stakeholders: How to Hold a Conversation About Sustainability? Speakers Luke Pearson, Co-founder and Director Pearson Lloyd, Thomas Westergaard, Vice President Hurtigruten Expeditions, and Bryan Liska, Director of Design Hilton Latin America & the Caribbean, examine the pitch for sustainability from a stakeholder to audience perspective.
