One of the outstanding environmental events of the year is returning to the NEC, Birmingham in May 2011.

Sustainabilitylive!, the UK’s leading exhibition for sustainable innovations and solutions, will be held at the NEC from 24th — 26th May 2011.

With more than 400 exhibitors, Sustainabilitylive! is made up of five of the premier shows covering the spectrum of water, energy, land, environment and sustainability sectors. They are the International Water and Effluent Exhibition (IWEX), Brownfield Expo (BEX), Environmental Technology (ET), the National Energy Management Exhibition (NEMEX), and Sustainable Business - The Event (SB).

Sustainabilitylive! provides a platform for the environmental sector to share cutting-edge technologies and industry innovations, alongside a three-day conference and extensive seminar programme where key business leaders and practitioners can explore current industry issues, best practise and pioneering applications.

Faversham House Group, who organise the event are keen to build on the success of the previous year. 2010 sponsor Annabel Britton, Marketing and Communications Manager from Hyder Consulting (UK) Limited says: “I would like to congratulate Faversham House for delivering an event that exceeded the high expectations we held as the result of our previous association. Sustainabilitylive! also enabled us to commence dialogues with senior representatives of businesses with whom we look forward to working in the year ahead.”

Event director Donna Bushell says: “Sustainabilitylive! is now a must-attend event for many of the most influential movers and shakers across the sector. It is unique in the sense that it draws on such a wide range of sustainable issues, providing information and solutions for busy people seeking to drive their organisation towards a more sustainable agenda. It’s also an ideas-sharing forum for best practice and innovation within the sector. If you attend just one environmental event this year, make it this one.”

Sustainabilitylive! will be held in Halls 3 and 3a at the NEC from 24th — 26th May 2011. For up to date exhibitor news, features programmes, information on how to exhibit or how to register for free attendance visit www.sustainabilitylive.com or call +44 (0)20 8651 7106.
