The 4th GreenEvents Europe Conference is taking place in Bonn from Nov 25th to 26th 2013 at the Wissenschaftszentrum in Bonn, Germany. Having organized three very successful previous conferences with more than 120 guests from home and abroad in 2012, we are expecting an even larger number of national and international participants, top-quality speakers and experts.
Like in the previous years, GreenEvents Europe 2013 will offer high-level input by speakers of international reputation without losing touch of the practical implementation.
In 2013 there will be some innovative additions to the programme. In particular, prior to the main conference session, the organisers will offer sessions for participants with no or little knowledge on green event management on the afternoon of Sunday Nov 24th: As with last year, there will be plenty of opportunities to network and interact.
Topics to be discussed with all parties involved (promoters, venues, suppliers etc.) will include: “What’s it worth? The waste business”, “The Power Panel”, “From bad to good – Upcycling”, “A healthy session – Catering without meat”, “Again and again – Camping and waste”, “The Triple Bottom Line – Economic, social and environmental aspects of events”, “Talking cups – biodegradable vs. multi-use”, “Audience attitude”, “Technical solutions to special problems – Technic forum”, “Entertainment for everyone – Barrier-free events”. The aim is to connect experts and professionals involved in event organisation to listen to other’s opinion and to start and intensify networks, exchange knowledge and best practise ideas.
The variety of urgent topics requires sessions and workshops to be organized in parallel. Therefore, organisers suggest that you “form a team or bring a colleague”. See the discount on the registration fee for more than one delegate per company or organisation.
The conference aims to deal with challenges regarding environmental protection and sustainability within an event’s organisation and promotion.
