The Grand Plan

At Olympia Events, sustainability has always sat at the heart of what we do. In 2017, a team of passionate people from across our company came together to form our sustainability working group. We call it The Grand Plan.

Our Grand Plan is not just about ‘green’ initiatives. Its ultimate goal is to leave a positive impact through all that we do. This includes our work with the The Olympia Charitable Trust in the local community.

Areas of focus
