The Sustainable Brands team is committed to slowing the spread of COVID-19 in order to protect public health. Like you, we’ve been grappling with the COVID-19 disruption, and in our case its impact on convening the SB community for our flagship event in June.
After weeks of internal planning and discussions with our facility and hotels, we are rescheduling our global flagship conference to late Fall 2020. Additionally, we are excited to announce the following additional benefits to our conference registrants:
- SB’20 Long Beach is rescheduled to November 30 – December 3. The facilities and partner hotels remain the same.
- Sustainable Brands will convene a virtual event on June 1, Brands for Good Leadership Summit. All registered attendees are automatically enrolled and invited to participate.
- On June 1, Sustainable Brands will launch the SB Professional Membership program. Benefits include an annual subscription to an ongoing series of virtual events, and access to select premium content. Registrants who purchased All-Access, Conference, and One-Day passes for SB’20 before April 7th, 2020, will receive a complimentary one-year Professional Membership subscription. We will provide more details in the coming weeks.
