Tom Bowman to Deliver Keynote at IFES World Summit 2014
5/15/2014
Tom Bowman, president of Bowman Change, Inc. and author of The Green Edge, will deliver the keynote speech at the annual general meeting of the International Federation of Exhibition and Event Services (IFES) in Delhi, India. Bowman will use the opportunity to highlight ways in which the global exhibit and event industry can conserve resources and make significant, immediate reductions in their carbon emissions.

Rajnikant Kedia, IFES 2014 World Summit Chairman, says the IFES World Summit will provide attendees with more than industry-specific knowledge about the opportunities and challenges of exhibiting in India. "IFES is committed to promoting standards across the exhibition industry, including standards in sustainability. Tom Bowman is recognized across the industry for developing money-saving opportunities to go green without sacrificing business outcomes," says Kedia.

Bowman calls sustainability a business opportunity. "Strong brands are winning by adopting sustainability as a core business strategy that produces real benefits - innovation, loyal customers, lower costs and higher value. Going green is the way to get ahead in today's marketplace," says Bowman.

Winners of IFES' Second Annual Sustainability Awards will be recognized at the IFES World Summit. As chair of the Exhibit Designers and Producers Association's (EDPA) Sustainable Exhibit Leadership Committee, Bowman is a member of the IFES Sustainability Award Jury. The IFES World Summit 2014 will be held on May 31-June 1, in Delhi, India. Learn more or register at www.ifesnet.com.
