But those strategies won’t exactly bond delegates to your event. So, how can you tie your conference into things green and enhance engagement?
During "What CSR Really Means to You and Your Delegates" at IMEX America, hear the results of the Global CSR study, which provides insights into how the results could be used to benefit your meeting and hospitality business.

The session will be presented by researchers from the International Center for Research in Events, Tourism and Hospitality at Leeds Metropolitan University and will include examples of how CSR is being implemented in practice.
