- ‘Post consumerist economy’
- ‘Attitude & behaviour gap’
- ‘Greener Touring’
- ‘Food & footprint’

- ‘Energy efficient music culture’
- ‘Sustainable Event Design’
- ‘Technical solutions to special problems’
- ‘Transport and Mobility’.
An ‘Upcycling workshop’ will be part of the conference as well as the ‘Culinary UPcycling’ lunch on day two which will show how the main issue of the conference can be dealt with.
Prior to the regular conference on Sunday Nov 2nd (afternoon), Green Events offer a GreenEvents Europe pre-conference workshop: “Food & beverage at events”. Participants will identify challenges and work on answering questions like ‘Why are food and beverage important topics in the event industry?’, ‘Is food part of an event and how does it influence its character, message and impact?’.
The variety of important topics requires some sessions and workshops to be organized in parallel. Therefore, form a team or bring a colleague. See our discount on the registration fee for more than one delegate per company.
