When attendees at GMIC’s annual Sustainable Meetings Conference convene in Chicago in April, they’ll hear a keynote address from Method Products co-founder Eric Ryan.


Ryan, a designer and marketer, teamed with boyhood friend Adam Lowry, a chemical engineer, in creating the San Francisco corporation known for its nontoxic, biodegradable natural cleaning supplies sold in minimalistic packaging. Method is recognized for its commitment to sustainability, including taking innovative steps to measure and reduce its carbon footprint.

Ryan and GMIC attendees will collaborate on how the meeting and event industry can apply Method thinking to “get the dirty out of events and meetings.”

The annual Sustainable Meetings Conference is the premier event for planners and suppliers wishing to address sustainability issues that are redefining the industry.

The conference takes place April 7-10 at Chicago’s McCormick Place West. Registration is open HERE.
