Sustainability Live is to become edie, as part of a major rebrand of the whole energy and sustainability offering, organiser Faversham House announced at the 2015 show.
The NEC event on 21-23 April, was held alongside NEMEX (The National Energy Managers Exhibition), ENERGY RECOVERY (The National Energy Recovery Exhibition) and the inaugural Utility Week Live.
Faversham House said that following extensive third-party research, the audience and supplier community wanted a single brand to integrate content across the company’s whole website, conferences and exhibition portfolio – which has led to Sustainability Live, NEMEX and Energy Recovery’s rebrand to edie2016 for next year.
“The research showed it was the obvious choice, because edie.net has been a trusted part of the workflow of 60,000+ energy, environment, facilities and sustainability professions for almost 20 years,” said a spokesman from the organiser.
Angela Himus, director for the water and sustainability portfolio at Faversham House added: “We are delighted with the reaction to the new edie brand and with the great reception to the many new features at this year’s show.
“edie2016 will build on this and explore new topics which are core to our audience. The event will return next year with a stronger focus on innovation, plus a tighter format over two days.”
New show features this year included a strategy-focused conference, under the headline ‘From risk to resilience’, alongside the event’s best CPD-accredited, practical seminar programme to date.
edie2016 will take place at the NEC on 17-18 May 2016.
