Cincinnati Westin, Cincinnati Ohio

$795 EARLY BIRD RATE EXPIRES 9.16.2022

Join us for the 2022 Velocity Institute Sustainability Summit, October 18-19, 2022, in Cincinnati Ohio. The Summit will bring the excitement of live in-person events back with a gathering in Cincinnati. We will ask questions and challenge existing answers – about sustainable packaging, ethical/equitable sourcing, and authentic marketing – and we are not the only curious ones. The two-day event is designed to help the industry find the answers that help you get closer to what “sustainable” means to you and your customers. And how it can create loyalty, differentiation, and profitability.
