GREEN EVENTS EUROPE – Bonn will be the place to be

geeThe 4th GreenEvents Europe Conference will take pl;ace in Bonn on November 25th and 26th 2013. After a very successful 2012 conference with more than 120 guests from 14 countries, organisers are expecting an even larger number of national and international participants, top-quality speakers and experts for the 4th GreenEvents Europe Conference to be held at Wissenschaftszentrum Bonn; GreenEvents Europe 2013 will offer high-level input by speakers of international reputation without losing touch of the practical implementation.

For the first time there will be a Beginners Workshop on green event management for participants with no or little knowledge prior to the regular conference on Sunday Nov 24th, afternoonFollowed by our greenEvents warm-up on the sunday evening.

As with previous years, there will be ample opportunities to network and interact. Organisers are looking forward to prominent speakers from major events, international institutions and initiatives, and sustainable suppliers. Please find the latest program (subject to changes) here.

The conference aims to deal with challenges set up regarding environmental protection and sustainability within an event’s organisation and promotion. Topics discussed with all parties involved (promoters, venues, suppliers etc.) such as The waste business, Catering without meat, Audience Attitude, „Down The Loo II”, Degrowth and events, Cups – biodegradable vs. multi-use, Plastics – can we avoid it?, Upcycling,Electricity and power, Camping and waste (again and again) among others. On the basis of practical questions from promoters and the production point of view. The aim is to connect experts and professionals involved in event organisation to listen to other’s opinion and to start networks, exchange knowledge and best practise ideas.
