Barbican Joins Green Meeting Industry Council

The Barbican has joined the Green Meeting Industry Council (GMIC). To ensure maximum benefit, individual memberships have been provided to members of staff from all areas of the business.

The GMIC is the premier global community solely dedicated to sustainability in the meetings and events industry, not only through education but also by spearheading research, policy and standards.

Anthony Hyde, head of corporate sales, said: “It is great to be a part of GMIC on a global level and we are particularly looking forward to the launch of their UK chapter. It is a non profit professional meetings association with member representation in over 20 countries. The GMIC is 100% focused on advancing sustainability in the meetings industry by helping individuals and leaders of all levels. As a venue committed to green credentials, it will provide a wonderful opportunity for us to share ideas with other organisations within the events industry. Above all, to ensure the entire Barbican becomes engaged with and involved in the GMIC, we have provided individual membership to a range of influential people across the organisation, including the head of event management, our head chef and facilities manager.”
