Amplify your impact

Scale and enable other organisations to embrace circularity.

Meet the Buyer

You have a proven circular product or service and are eager to reach more clients and customers. Our meet the buyer events will give you the opportunity to meet face to face with buyers that are actively seeking sustainable solutions. By answering their call, you will not only amplify your positive environmental impact, you will also enable other organisations to embrace circularity.

Sustainable Events

in partnership with LLDC

Every year there are hundreds of events at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park with millions of visitors. We’ve partnered with London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), who manage the site and have committed to achieve zero waste to landfill events by 2020 and zero carbon events by 2030. To help LLDC reach these milestones, we’re delighted to be bringing together Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park event organisers and London’s circular businesses in our ‘meet the buyer’ event.

Do you have a solution to one of these challenges?

  • 1

    Better ways to manage food waste 

    Can you help LLDC reduce the amount of food waste sent to landfill? How can they reduce food waste or increase composting?

  • 2

    Low environmental impact merchandising

    Many of the events held at the park are sporting events that involve lots of merchandise. Do you have a circular solution for T-shirts, cups, medals, lanyards and gift bags.

  • 3

    Increased recycling

    How can event organisers encourage participants to recycle more? Can they make better choices about the type of waste they produce?

  • 4

    Waste reduction and re-usable solutions

    Event organisers are worried about single use items. Do you have a solution to plastic bottles, coffee cups, cutlery, plates and other single use things?
