Organisers of the Green Events & Innovations Conference (GEI) expect to sell out in advance of next week’s tenth-anniversary edition, taking place the day before the 30th International Live Music Conference (ILMC) at the Royal Garden Hotel in London.
Organised by not-for-profit organisation A Greener Festival and supported by ILMC, GEI tackles head-on important environmental and social topics surrounding the events industry. The full agenda was published today, and includes and speakers from Greenpeace, Roskilde Festival, Glastonbury, New Internationalist, Bestival, Surfdome, Watermills, Soil Association, Pohoda Festival and Resources Futures.
“From poo to power, from waste to water, from activism to eco-currencies and even a brand of beer that is brewed using salvaged bread, delegates can expect to have their minds boggled by innovation and their spirits ignited by green experts and inspiring individuals who will present tried-and-tested solutions to common event management problems,” say organisers.
“If you organise or are involved with an event or festival and are concerned with waste, plastics, climate change and sustainability, you can’t afford to miss this event.”
The 10th GEI takes place on Tuesday 6 March at the Royal Garden Hotel. For more information and to register, click here.
