SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Sustainable Life Media announced today the dates for its flagship Sustainable Brands Conference in 2011.  The conference continues into its 5th year on June 7-10, 2011. Sustainable Brands has become the must-attend meeting of the year for sustainability innovation and brand leaders looking to identify and execute on opportunities to deliver new business and brand value via environmental and social innovation. Participants consistently rate the speakers, the content, the location, and the networking as among the most valuable business activities in which they engage each year.

Earlier this year, the SB'10 conference continued a four year pattern of growth in attendance, bringing together every element in the business community dedicated to sustainable innovation and value creation.  The event allows industry sectors including global brands and start-ups, NGOs and government, authors, professors and scientists, designers and communications experts, all to mingle, share ideas, and begin planning for the next phase of sustainable innovation in business. Leaders in business and brand strategy, innovation and sustainability gathered this past June for three days of extraordinary conversation, inspiration and insights and left empowered with new strategies and tactics for leading profitable innovation for sustainability into the coming decade.

Speakers and presenters who shared challenges and successes around sustainability came from innovation-leading companies like Timberland, Nike, Nokia, Ford, IDEO, EBay, Gensler, Wal-mart, Coca-Cola, Cisco, Ogilvy, IBM, Molson-Coors, Clorox, and Target.  Many more with stories from the trenches, words of wisdom for companies moving in similar directions, and warnings about pitfalls to avoid, are expected to attend and speak in 2011.

"In today's increasingly complex global marketplace, massive opportunity exists for re-designing your products and business to meet changing stakeholder demands," said KoAnn Skrzyniarz, CEO of Sustainable Life Media.  "Tomorrow's better brands will provide smarter, healthier solutions as they delight in design and compete in performance. They'll communicate their benefits authentically and they'll win in the market through the loyalty they earn from their customers."

Sustainable Life Media also announced their annual call for new speakers for the 2011 conference.  Each year the cutoff date gets earlier due to a constant increase in submissions.  Companies offering up a dramatic or instructive sustainable brands story, to be presented by the leading practitioner / expert within their company, may review instructions for speaker submissions at: http://bit.ly/dDgHf5.

Less than 10% of speaker nominations are ultimately chosen each year as Sustainable Brands Conference continues to raise the bar in presentation quality and education from year to year.
