Sustainable Life Media announced today that registration is now open for the 5th anniversary of its flagship Sustainable Brands (SB) conference, which has become the preeminent global event worldwide for addressing sustainability innovation as a premier driver of business and brand value for the 21st Century. This year's milestone event will be an immersive experience for the community of over 750 leading sustainability game changers in how game thinking and play can inform strategy, improve creativity, facilitate collaboration, and engage and support behavior change among key brand stakeholders.
Confirmed speakers include Jeffrey Hollender, Chris Laszlo, Michael Dupee, Chip Conley and others, who will speak on a wide variety of forward-edge brand innovation topics from the growing impact of design thinking in business to the migration from "ownership to access." The presentation of other innovative business models will explore solutions to making consumption sustainable, inspiring community-driven brand building, and understanding how technology and social media continue to change the way brands are built today. Additional discussions and presentations will provide insights into sustainable brand drivers, emerging product and business model innovation strategies and case studies, and best-of-breed communications campaigns and the execution particulars behind them.
The Sustainable Brands 2011 conference uniquely brings together business and brand strategists, designers, sustainability executives and the ecosystem of organizations that support them for three days of extraordinary conversation, inspiration and insights to map new strategies and tactics for driving profitable and sustainable brand innovation. Attendance has grown steadily every year and is expected to see significant gains in 2011 as more companies invest in deepening their sustainable brand commitments, infrastructure, teams and knowledge base in a strengthening economy. Change agents from companies like 3M, Green Mountain Coffee, Ford, Johnson & Johnson, UPS, Coca-Cola, Nestle, SC Johnson, Unilever, Nike, Hewlett Packard, Recyclebank and many more are already making plans to attend SB again this year. Confirmed lead sponsors of SB'11 include Citizen Group, Cohn & Wolfe, CSRwire, Domtar, EcoBonus, Hewlett Packard, Saatchi & Saatchi S., Shelton Group and others.
"With five solid years under our belt, and the bar continuing to be raised by global leaders committed to sustainability as the benchmark for the better brands of the future, we say 'Play On!'" said KoAnn Skrzyniarz, CEO of Sustainable Life Media. "We look forward to partnering with advisors, sponsors and our community to create an even more inspiring and engaging learning and partnership building experience in Monterey in June."
