Going green: the secret to staging an eco-friendly event

Holding an eco-friendly event

Is staging an eco-friendly event important for you and your corporation? These days it seems like everyone is going green, from the electric cars made by Tesla to energy-saving light bulbs to reusable coffee cups made famous by Keepcup.

But did you know that it is absolutely possible to hold environmentally friendly green events as well? It’s true, and this is a trend that is most certainly catching on.

According to a survey by Destination Hotels & Resorts, 63% of event planners say that eco-friendly practices are either a “somewhat important” or “extremely important” consideration in venue choice.

Review your audiovisual options

So how can you ensure that your next event is as environmentally friendly as possible? Well, the first thing you should consider is what sort of audiovisual equipment you will be using.

By making use of LED lighting in your event lighting display, it can be possible to reduce power consumption by up to 70% – a significant margin that anyone will be able to appreciate.

It’s also worth considering the size and bulk of the audio-visual equipment that you will be utilising, as larger equipment will require more petrol to be consumed during the transportation process.

Often by talking to a team of experts ahead of schedule, it is possible to locate smaller equipment capable of producing just as much sound and excitement with a far reduced eco-footprint.

Do your part for Australia

Another great way to improve the environmental friendliness of your next event is by ensuring that any leftover glass or plastic bottles are recycled in the correct manner, and by encouraging your guests to travel together to the venue rather than in separate cars.

You might be surprised at just how easy it can be to stage a great green event, and afterwards you will be able to sleep soundly knowing that you’ve done your part to help ensure a cleaner, brighter future for the Australians of tomorrow.
