Understanding Sustainability in the Industry with Informa’s Ben Weilgus

November 6, 2019

Inside Events Podcast, hosted by Megan Powers; Episode #5 - “Understanding Sustainability in the Industry with Informa’s Ben Weilgus,” with guests Ben Weilgus & Elizabeth Glau.

In the first half of this show our host Megan Powers, from Powers of Marketing, discussed news with industry colleague Elizabeth Glau. 

Megan and Elizabeth also talked about an article from Skift in which the airline industry was called out for not being as eco-friendly as they purport. This was a perfect precursor to the discussion on sustainability in the second half of the show.

Our guest Ben Wielgus has been in the meetings and events industry for less than four years, but he worked in sustainability for a dozen years before that. He brings a ton of experience from his years of working with KPMG, and he’s made a concerted effort to learn from industry pros like Jeff Chase.

There’s a “big, hairy, audacious goal” that Ben talks about towards the end -- make sure to listen all the way through for the final nuggets!
