Green Events & Innovations conference (GEI) is presented in partnership with the International Live Music Conference (ILMC), welcoming over 150 industry leaders and professionals working to bring environmental and social sustainability to live events.
The industry’s attention and response to environmental impacts has accelerated greatly in recent years. Drawing on the continuous work and observations of AGF, each year GEI demonstrates the latest solutions and technologies for practical event management, as well as crucial challenges that need to be addressed. The conference mixes practical case studies, discussion panels and presentations from around the world, alongside networking coffee breaks, a complimentary 5* lunch, and closing party with complimentary drinks.
GEI consistently attracts the industry’s top speakers and innovators. The last edition included input from Nathalie Fee (City to Seas), Rob da Bank (Bestival), Bob Wilson (Greenpeace UK), Mikkel Sander (Roskilde Festival), Ed Cook (Resources Futures) and Jane Healy (Glastonbury Festival) to name a few. See this years agenda below …
NEW FOR 2019
GEI11 will see the conference return to ILMC’s spiritual home – the Royal Garden Hotel – but with some significant changes introduced for this 11th edition, with both capacity and programming expanding.
By combining networking breaks, lunches and the closing party drinks with the ILMC Production Meeting, delegates can take advantage of an increasingly diverse programme allowing opportunities for the world’s leading production professionals to meet and connect with the festivals, event organisers, venue owners and sustainability experts of GEI. Through this collaborative content, we aim for both of these vital business sectors to exchange information and knowledge.
GEI’s main session panels move to a new larger room, and added to the days offerings are 2 extra rooms, shared with IPM. Sessions will include IPM’s ‘Production Notes’ throughout the day, with innovative ideas in the production and environmental spaces showcased. If you wish to centre yourself to aid your marvellous revolutionary journey of amazingness, we also have yoga, psychology and later hula dance off sessions get you set for the night!
