Today's article is a brief look at the issue of air miles and transportation when it comes to planning events - in particular corporate conferences. There are 2 main factors here. The first is the amount of travel with international corporate events - conferences, trade shows, etc. And the second is the travel to and from the venue in terms of local travel - car pools, taxi companies, bicycle access, shuttle buses and such like. With the carbon footprint of an International Conference often being more than 80% of the total footprint of the entire event, there is clearly something...

  There are in general 2 types of waste solutions to make your venue more sustainable. Firstly there are the ‘quick fix’ solutions that you can instigate quickly with a bit of planning and decisiveness. And secondly there are the bigger and more long-terms changes that you can make to a venue. These will almost certainly cost more and require a greater commitment. However, with the benefits they bring, bills will be cut down to help redress the initial financial outlay. And of course you will have the benefit of being correctly perceived as a modern, forward thinking venue. It’s...

All over the country and indeed throughout the world, there is a growing demand for sustainable, eco-conscious venues for events. As sustainability and the environment is being included as part of the design brief for architects in new builds, there are venues who realise that they can do a lot to decrease their own carbon footprint as well.

But there's also many opportunities to save paper and the environment. For events, we think carefully about printed matter. For corporate events, often making text and information digital as much as possible makes complete sense. It can be much more efficient and with increasing numbers of excellent apps geared to the industry, there’s really no excuse for not making the effort to find a way of communicating digitally - both leading up to the event and...

The idea that your event food could be delicious, healthier and better for the planet is obviously an appealing one. If you’ve tasted organic, corn fed chicken and then compared with the cheapest basic chicken in a supermarket, you’ll know the difference. Or seasonal vegetables that grow well in the UK like asparagus, potatoes, kale and lettuce. They travel less, are grown naturally and taste more fresh and delicious. Yes it’s true that organic often costs more. But there are also farmer’s markets and local suppliers that are likely to give a good deal based on buying in quantity. And...

When you purchase event flowers, you look for beautiful arrangements and backdrops. Stunning flower installations can really enhance and make an event look perfect. The creativity that goes into flower installations for events is quite amazing and sets apart a visually stunning event from an ordinary one. You can have classic, modern, edgy, and lots of other styles depending on the nature of the occasion. However, did you think about where these flowers came from?  And where they go afterwards?
