Sustainability isn’t just about upholding New Year resolutions. It’s also about supporting the longevity of our environment, especially when planning extravagant events that are here and gone with the blink of an eye. While events provide memories to last a lifetime, we must also be mindful of the waste and emissions that have a lasting effect on the environment. Here are a few ideas to get eco-friendly, but for more ideas, visit our ‘Sustainable Event Design’ board.
Go Green by Going Geek: Out with fancy paper invitations & programs and in with cool evites and apps that provide everything with the tap of your finger.
2 Birds, 1 Stone: Hop on an electricity-generating stationary bike to burn calories while recharging your personal electronics.
Let there be light: Illuminate your next event with garden lights powered by soil!
I started my first company in 2010 in the midst of the down economy. By sharing content on Twitter, Facebook, and my blog, I gained expertise in the event planning industry and have become a leader and influencer. Thankfully, I've been named Top 25 Most Influential Event Planners in 2013, 40 Under 40 Up-and-Coming Event Planners in 2011, the #Eventprofs Most Thought Provoking Blog and People’s Choice Award. This created a platform for me to build my business and strong brand even further. Working with clients on events like Earn $100K Summit and S.H.E. Summit Week, I help entrepreneurs integrate technology into their events to better engage their attendees.
In addition to our client work, we also hosts our own events. As the founder of TechsyTalk and PlannerTech, I'm incredibly dedicated to educating fellow event professionals on how technology can enhance their events.
