Organising the Executive Networking Event at HCJ 2022

We’ve just emerged from pulling off a successful in-person event within “HCJ 2022” - Japan’s Largest Exhibition for Hospitality, Food Service & Catering, attended by over 28,000 visitors over 4 days. Tricolage was appointed to be in charge of planning and direction for the “50th Anniversary Executive Networking” - an exclusive networking event within the Exhibition, attended by executives in the hospitality and food & beverage industry from all over Japan. On top of that, Tricolage was also the appointed #sustainability advisor. We not only advised and ensured this event was done so in the most sustainable way, we also used this as an opportunity to galvanize our partners and participants into thinking about how their businesses can contribute to a better future for society and the environment, by:
🏨 Producing a Sustainability Trends booklet with the latest news and data on sustainability in the hospitality and F&B industry 
🤝 Putting up an SDGs Wall, engaging participants to have conversations around the goals, share ideas on what their business can do, and how to collaborate with each other to further these goals for a better future. 
📊 Creating a comprehensive Impact Report of the event to evaluate each partner (including ourselves) on a range of sustainability areas, including the use of energy & water, procurement, management and waste, and linking each area back to the #SDGs.

What an honor it was to have this opportunity to engage the decision-makers in the hospitality and F&B industry across Japan, and it was really encouraging to see their enthusiasm in taking these issues seriously. 

We’ll continue to work towards our mission to help make businesses more #sustainable in Japan.
