Green conventions or meetings are conducted in ways to minimize the environmental burdens imposed by such activities. Green meeting and event planners, like Kellen, apply environmentally-friendly practices to all aspects of conferences and events, including site selection, resource and energy use, waste management, travel and local transportation, food provision and disposal, as well as management and purchasing decisions.
Why Go Green?
Provide water stations with glassware in lieu of bottled water and prevent tons of non-biodegradable plastic from entering landfills.
Utilize paperless technologies to provide attendees with quick and efficient options for online registration, meeting information retrieval, check-in and more.
Recycling name badges and other commonly used supplies can save thousands of dollars over time as well as the impact on the environment.
Attending a meeting that is offering environmentally-friendly practices gives attendees a sense of social responsibility and makes for a positive experience. It’s also an effective public relations tool to help generate more attendance.
