United Business Media (UBM) has expanded its free-to-exhibit corporate social responsibility (CSR) brand with the London launch of the Responsible Partnerships Exhibition.
Running from 17 to 18 March at London’s Business Design Centre, the show aims to bring charities and businesses together to facilitate partnerships for CSR programmes. UBM organised the event in partnership with the Prince of Wales’s Charity Business in the Community, which is also running the paid-for Responsible Business Convention alongside the show.
“What we are trying to do with UBM is move it so it’s much closer to its market and its community,” UBM CEO David Levin told EN. “We have the buyers and the sellers, but there is also a richness here that is charities finding huge opportunities among each other.”
Marshall Dallas has been appointed as the new chief executive of the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC). He joins the company on 1 October succeeding Hans H Rissmann who has held the role for 21 years.
