Sustainable Event Management

The event management industry is fast-paced and very competitive, particularly in Europe where the public requires a highly trained and professionalized workforce to satisfy the increasing demand for specialized services to meet the latest market trends.

Socio-cultural and eco trends demand the incorporation of the principles of sustainability into the strategic planning of events. Sustainable event management involves creating a harmonious balance between the financial objectives of the event, the environmental impact of all conducted activities and the social enhancement of all stakeholders involved. Through internationally accepted certification standards and regulations, sustainability is now becoming a crucial aspect of successful event planning and in the near future it will become the accepted norm to generate long-term value.
