UK Festival Awards & Conference to host Festival Vision: 2025 update

Powerful Thinking’s Chair, Chris Johnson, will deliver an update on the progress and achievements of Festival Vision: 2025 at the 13th edition of the UK Festival Awards & Conference this Nov 28th at the Roundhouse, London.

Last year, at the 2015 UK Festival Awards, Powerful Thinking launched The Show Must Go On, a seminal environmental report on the UK festival industry, before going on to present it at the COP 21 climate change talks in Paris.  As Powerful Thinking celebrates 50 UK Festivals signing the Festival Vision:2025 pledge to act on climate change, Chris will discuss the progress so far and invite more festival organisers to join the biggest environmental movement in the history of the UK festival industry.

The UK Festival Awards & Conference has revealed its first shortlists for 2016. The evening’s Awards are preceded by a comprehensive conference that runs throughout the day and covers the topics of cashless technology, ticketing, virtual reality, the plight of UK nightlife, and disaster planning. Awards present a wide array of accolades across categories that are decided via a combination of public voting and jury panels.

The Powerful Thinking team will be available throughout the conference to talk about the objectives of Festival Vision: 2025 and what organisers can do to take part.
