Sustainable Future Reception


Deliver a networking cocktail reception to close out a week at the Farnborough Air Show to showcase & celebrate our client’s investment in a sustainable future to 150 senior stakeholders and government representatives.


Hosted at the Design Museum in London, UK (recently awarded the highest BREEAM rating), FIRST looked to elevate this highly anticipated event with fully eco-friendly solutions at every step, whilst delivering a fun, interactive networking experience, expert content presentations, all with a celebratory ‘after-party’ feel to mark the end of the Air Show.


FIRST refined every element of the experience to the highest level of ESG consideration by leveraging supplier partners and consulting with our in-house and ESG experts.  The event delivered uplifting content presentations in an exciting setting with demonstrable future-focused sustainable and ethical design.
