My Session

A sustainable approach to events: theory and practice

Sustainability should be part of everything we do as event managers, but at times it’s hard to know where to start and how we can really have an impact. This session will outline a five-step methodology for organising sustainable events and provide industry insight and examples of sustainable event management in practice.
