Director of Consumer Launch for Reed Exhibitions Jon Fontane prepares for the first ever Outside Experience

NEW YORK, NY - JULY 16: Journalists and guests tour an ecological living module, a 22 square meter 'tiny house,' at the United Nations Plaza, July 16, 2018 in New York City. Constructed primarily from locally-sourced, bio-based renewable materials, the tiny house was developed by Yale University and UN Environment. The groups hope the module will spark public discussion and new ideas on how sustainable design can provide affordable housing and limit the overuse of natural resources.
