While there are many reasons to incorporate sustainable practices into meetings and events, including saving costs and resources, protecting the environment, improving social issues, doing business more efficiently and effectively and attracting new audiences, the number one reason to go green is to do business better. The book is divided into three parts, which reflect defining principles of greener meetings and events: Innovation, Conservation, and Education.
This book broadly explores sustainable management in the hospitality, tourism, conference and exhibition, and meeting and event industries, as well as countless smaller industries that include arts and music festivals and tour operators. Readers who are studying in, working in, or even just interested in these industries will reap innumerable benefits from the exciting journey ahead of them in The Complete Guide to Greener Meetings and Events.
