Jun. 18 /CSRwire/ - BURLINGAME, CA., - June 18, 2008 - In direct response to the strong success of the Sustainable Brands conference, and participant interest in convening a targeted conversation about global sustainable brand issues and opportunities, Sustainable Life Media today announced Sustainable Brands International, (SBi) a spin-off of its marquee Sustainable Brands Conference. The inaugural international conference will be held in Miami Beach, FL at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach from December 9-11, 2008. Like the Sustainable Brands Conference, participants will include senior business and product strategy, brand and sustainability executives from around the world.
SBi will help participants identify and capitalize on opportunities for sustainability-driven revenue growth and brand value in various markets around the world. This unique event will cover both the internal and external issues of building a successful global sustainable brand as it compares and contrasts unique market opportunities and idiosyncrasies across various continents, unfolding changes in international regulatory environments, and complexities in supply chain and product distribution across continents. The conference will provide a unique forum for exchanging information with peers interested in international sustainable brand opportunities, and in addition, will serve as a showcase of innovative sustainable brands from local market leaders worldwide.
"Representatives from 10 countries participated in Sustainable Brands '08. These, and others who have reached out to us in recent months from around the world, as well as many of the top global US based businesses who are working on global brand issues, have asked us to convene such a gathering," said KoAnn Vikoren Skrzyniarz, President and CEO of Sustainable Life Media, curator of the Sustainable Brands Conference and other sustainable business events. "We are excited about partnering with several new international entities as well as many of our existing partners to facilitate this important conversation."
Miami Beach was chosen as a venue because of its international appeal, ease of access and manageable cost for U.S. and international travelers, as well as for its beautiful beachfront location and great December weather. Furthermore, the newly completed Fountainbleau Hotel showcases many sustainable innovations which conference guests will be able to experience first hand.
