GO Group heads to Paris

GO

Greener, smarter, more sustainable – the GO Group credo is becoming more and more important to the European events industry. Festivals from all over the continent take part in the process and we really want to see all the others follow. That’s why GO Group set up this interactive, open and communicative workshop format to stimulate exchange, cooperation and inspiration – between event organizers, suppliers and science.

Now it’s time for the 3rd international GO Group workshop in Paris. We kindly invite you to this 2-day seminar at the Hôtel de Ville (Town Hall of the City of Paris), on April 8 and 9 2013. The workshop is kindly hosted by We Love Green Festival and supported by Azimuth Productions. The program shapes up: we are happy to confirm the participation of Bruno Rebelle (CEO of Transition/Paris and former program director of Greenpeace International). Please find the schedule and speaker infomation below.

Register now at the Bucks New University online store. The workshop fee is EUR 200 (+VAT, on sale wed feb 13). Fee includes lunch on both days. Yourope special offer: members get EUR 50 discount for 1 participant.

The third GO Group workshop for Sustainable Festivals and Events will focus on energy & power (day 1) and waste at events (day 2). Presentations, discussion and case studies from leading European festivals will deal with the problems, solutions and good practice.
