The event industry and its professionals are committing more than ever to eco-friendly initiatives. Whether the decision is based is corporate commitments to sustainability or attendee expectations, producing truly sustainable events that still bring the "wow factor" takes thoughtful consideration in preparation and execution.

Lowering the carbon footprint of a notoriously unsustainable industry is no small feat, and it often impacts every part of the decision-making process. Many brands struggle to incorporate green initiatives due to a lack of resources and guidance. Some brands may even feel the pressure to pull off a 100% green event, but the real difference comes in attainable goals that impact big.

In this session, LEO Events' meeting experts will share realistic, creative ways to implement sustainable practices in all areas of event production to help solidify brands' commitments to climate action without cutting corners on design and attendee experience.
