Green Events & Innovations

Resources and information about our annual Green Events & Innovations Conference.

A Greener Festival runs the annual Green Events & Innovations conference which allows the festival community, academics, suppliers, scientists, sponsors and any other interested parties to come together and share ideas and highlight any developments within their sector or at their events. Topical panels are put together which run throughout the day on a range of subjects and areas of interest. Our partners are Bucks New University and The Association of Independent Festivals.
