Event App

We have reduced waste by replacing printed documentation with an app. Make sure you have it downloaded to your devices in time for the meeting. Get Agorify on Google Play and Apple App Store.


You will have some great food choices while you are with us but now we have worked with the caterer to increase the proportion of plant-based items. We have also built a plan with the venue to avoid waste through how they serve meals and how any leftovers are processed. Our aim is that you have some great meals, whilst with us, but with less environmental impact by the time you leave.


An international meeting does involve travel but where it is practical, please consider more sustainable alternatives to flying. The app will also have a discussion space to arrange ride shares.
