Olympia London has announced the dates for the launch of a new international climate event this year: Innovation Zero - Climate and Clean Technology Congress.
More than 7,000 UK and international business leaders from finance, business and policy will come together at Olympia London for Innovation Zero – Climate & Clean Tech Congress to drive solutions for decarbonisation.
Over 200 exhibitors and 250 speakers will collaborate on creative action across two days, 24-25 May 2023, with the common goal of accelerating the low carbon transition. Leaders from companies such as Unilever, Virgin Atlantic, Heathrow Airport, British Gas and UK Infrastructure Bank (UKIB) are lined up to speak alongside international political figures.
Innovation Zero is chaired by the Rt Hon. Dr Liam Fox MP, the former Secretary of State for International Trade. Its inaugural event is endorsed by UK Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak.
Olympia London’s sustainability focus through its Grand Plan was a key reason for Innovation Zero choosing the venue for this important event, as well as its location offering a gateway into London.
Paul Dunne, Co-Founder & Director of Clean Tech Events, said that Olympia London was a fitting destination for the event: “I'm delighted to announce Innovation Zero, the UKs flagship Clean Tech innovation and decarbonisation leadership Congress has chosen Olympia London
Innovation Zero, which is chaired by the Rt Hon. Dr Liam Fox MP, and partnered with the UK Government brings together thousands of policy makers, Clean Tech innovators, major investors and leaders from the public and private sector to implement net zero solutions. It’s fitting that our home is the UKs most sustainable major business event venue,” said Dunne.
Olympia London’s CEO, Julie Driscoll commented: “We’re enormously excited to host this event and about the outcomes of bringing key decisionmakers together at our venue to accelerate partnerships and deal-making between those developing and producing low carbon solutions, and those who will fund them. It aligns closely with our pledge of becoming a net zero venue and is also the first large international event to launch in the iconic Olympia Grand hall since the pandemic.”
This news follows the venue being recognised at the London Venue & Catering Awards with the Sustainability Award.
