Producing Sustainable Events: Site Selection – Beyond the Checklists
How many of you ask the ever-present question “where do we start” when committing to plan a sustainable meeting or event? Our guest speaker, Dr. Aurora Dawn Benton will walk us through checklists for building out your sustainable RFPs and plans. She will show us how to engage the local destination CVB or DMO to ensure meaningful social and environmental performance. She will point out what you should look for in site visits that will distinguish those who tick the boxes and those who are delivering next-level sustainability impact. In addition, during this session you will learn about key certifications and programs to seek out for guidance to maximize positive sustainable event impact beyond the checklist.
