GreenEvents Europe 2014 focuses on “more sustainable food & beverage at events” without neglecting other important topics like transport and mobility, energy, resource management and new technical developments. These topics will be discussed with all parties involved (promoters, venues, suppliers etc.). Issues to be discussed are among others Food, drinks and Rock’n’Roll (various sessions and topics), Social Impact of events, Post consumerist economy, Attitude & behaviour gap, Greener Touring and Greener Arenas, Sustainable Event Design, Sustainability in extreme situations and Transport and Mobility. An ‘Upcycling workshop’ will be part of the conference as well as the ‘Culinary UPcycling’ lunch presented by “Karmakitchen” on day two which will show how the main issue of the conference can be dealt with.
Prior to the regular conference on Sunday nov 2nd, afternoon, we offer a GreenEvents Europe pre-conference workshop: “Food & beverage at events”. Participants will identify challenges and work on answering questions like ‘Why are food and beverage important topics in the event industry?’, ‘Is food part of an event and how does it influence its character, message and impact?’.
