The World Green Roof Congress (WGRC) in Copenhagen in September 2012 will be a first joint venture for London-based event management company and PCO, the TFI Group.
The congress is expected to attract more than 300 of the world’s leading architects, designers and practitioners to discuss development of green roof technology and how to turn the ‘urban grey to green’.
The organising partnership is with event founder livingroofs.org and marks a key strategic step for TFI Group.
Dusty Gedge, co-founder of livingroofs.org and The World Green Roof Congress, says: “The TFI Group brings its specialist events experience and infrastructure, to merge together with our knowledge and passion for the subject.”
Gedge expects Copenhagen to make a great location, particularly given its strong activities that promote green roofs in the city. “The congress will have a huge influence way beyond the event itself,” he says.
Simon Maier, TFI Group Business Development Director, says the TFI Group is “delighted to be able to play our part in raising awareness through live events such as this.”
Steen Jakobsen, Meet in Copenhagen Convention Director, says attracting a conference which fits with the city’s urban development agenda is particularly appealing.
“Copenhagen is among the most sustainable cities in the world. Hosting the World Green Roof Congress is a testament to Copenhagen’s achievements as an environmentally friendly city.”
The World Green Roof Congress takes place from 19-21 September.
