give them a 'fair go'
Do the right thing
Our founders spent a fair amount of their professional careers in Australia. Spend any amount of time with Australians and you likely hear about the ‘fair go’ concept.
We attempt to be fair to people, business, organisations & communities we impact. Central to our ethical policy is the ideal of being fair. We want to provide a ‘fair go’ to all the stakeholders in an event such as Inbox Expo. This means going beyond delegates, speakers and sponsors.
The email community, staff, venue’s and all other aspects of the event all need to be taken into account. We hope the #emailgeeks, public and partners will give us a ‘fair go’ and set fair & reasonable expectations as we attempt to tackle the massive task of working towards getting it right. We are striving towards true diversity, equity and inclusion.
“Everyone gets a voice”
it is important that even the smallest of business and Consultants can participate and benefit from participating at Inbox Expo. Which is why Small Business Vendor Booths are priced affordably.
Additionally We Are extending complementary vendor booths to a number of startups.
Accessibility & Diversity
A key tenet of our events is diversity. We attempt to tackle diversity at all levels and seek to provide better representation across genders, racial and ethnic, socioeconomic, geographic, as well as academic and professional backgrounds. We aim to ensure our events are accessible to individuals who would otherwise may not have the opportunity.
This extends to staff, speakers and delegates alike. One way we tackle this is with Live streaming, Live Transcriptions and ticket scholarships.
How we try to put 'fair go' into action
Be Global, Act Local, Spend Ethically
We will always try our practical best to minimise our carbon footprint in respect of events. A primary reason we look to promote a digital first experience. However we will often have physical live events. We do not and will not fly in massive event management teams for our conferences or summits. Now and in future we will look to work with talented members in the local community. We will first attempt to source the required skills and talent from those who are young or otherwise disenfranchised or disadvantaged.
We start our local talent search through word of mouth reaching out to community leaders and their networks to try and identify incredibly talented individuals. We find we naturally have a diverse and highly skilled team motivated to excel as a result.
One of the biggest investments in live events is the venue. This important spend we try and do in a socially responsible manner. We source outstanding and unique venues operated by third sector organisations including universities, colleges, hospitals, charitable and other socially responsible organisations.
A key tenet of our events is diversity. We attempt to tackle diversity at all levels and seek to provide better representation across genders, racial and ethnic, socioeconomic, geographic, as well as academic and professional backgrounds.
To ensure this can be a reality we have to ensure that speaking at a session or joining a round table is not a pay-to-play affair. We will not now or ever require sponsorship or other financial consideration to submit a proposal to speak or to share your story on stage. The value of your content is our primary consideration (and any logistical restraints).
We are determined to provide opportunities to those that are often under represented at similar conferences. Whilst the marcom, email and messaging space is massively diverse, when going to some events might leave you thinking the talent and thought leadership is all focused in a few states in North America and some outliers in Europe. Through a variety of initiatives we seek to ensure the talent in regions outside North America and across Europe have a platform to share their story.
Believe in our Vision?
We are actively seeking partners and associates. We need co-operation with a wide variety of organisations to ensure we can successfully achieve our vision.
Event Sponsors, Media Partner, Ticketing Joint Ventures and other opportunities are all open to discussion. Bringing together a fair and balanced conference packed with value and produced to the highest professional standards will take lots of help.
