GEI12 will focus on sustainability issues around catering, water and sanitation, transport, energy and venues of all sizes
By IQ on 10 Jul 2019
The 12th edition of the Green Events & Innovations Conference (GEI), the conference for sustainability at live events, is open for registration.
Next year’s conference, run by A Greener Festival in partnership with the International Live Music Conference (ILMC), will take place on Tuesday 3 March 2020 at the Royal Garden Hotel in London, the day before ILMC. GEI12 will mark the second year in a larger conference space shared with the ILMC Production Meeting (IPM), after moving this year following 2018’s sell-out and amid increased interest in environmental issues.
Topics confirmed for the 2020 agenda include water and sanitation innovation, transport of the future, audience behaviour and campsite waste, ‘venues and arenas: small/medium and mega! What’s now and next’, ‘green, clean and lean energy – from remote locations to inner-city sites’, ‘the true cost of catering’ and ‘doctor’s circularity surgery: what is this stuff and where can I stick it?’.
