Following on from the Greener Festival awards for the 2017 season, attention has turned to non-festival events with the team at assessment body A Greener Festival announcing The Greener Event Awards (TGEA) winners.
Since the launch of TGEA last year, the team has already worked with a wide range of events from conferences to multi-venue shows, AGMs to sports events. Congratulations to The Showman’s Show in the UK, and the Booking.com Annual Meeting (BAM18) in the Netherlands, who picked up awards at the Green Events & Innovations Conference on 6 March in London.
Johnny Lance, organiser of the Showman’s Show, said: “We are chuffed to have been awarded a Greener Event Award by A Greener Festival, which recognised our efforts to make the Showman’s Show more environmentally sustainable. Many thanks to our contractors for helping us achieve this, you know who you are. Onwards and upwards, and here’s to making further improvements for the 2018 Show. If you are an event organiser looking to make your event more sustainable, the Greener Event Awards is a very useful exercise!”
