The Future & You

Auditorium 2, Brighton Centre

In June 2012 we hosted the Ultimate Site Visit in partnership with Aeon Events, AVT Connect, Kudos, Sussex Signs, VisitBrighton and X-Hibit, to help visitors imagine the venue’s refurbished spaces and facilities in a fresh way, engaging them through live performance and an unforgettable audio-visual experience.

On that day Auditorium 2 at the Brighton Centre was transformed in a tranquil green space where attendees could hear more about sustainability at events. Feedback from those who attended showed that this area was one of the favourite stops on the tour and that sustainability continues to be an industry Hot Topic.

In a truly sustainable fashion we have decided to Recycle and Upcycle this USV tour stop and create a day for our industry colleagues to join us at the Brighton Centre to discuss all things sustainable and learn more about how the industry is changing following the introduction of ISO 20121.

Sustainable Events: The Future & You took place on Wednesday 5 June 2013 at the Brighton Centre in association with the ABPCO, Conference News and AVT Connect.

The day started with a panel session – The Future of Sustainable Events, followed by a roundtable best practice session, then a tour of the Brighton Centre’s sustainability features.

Lunch in our amazing panoramic sea-view third floor restaurant followed this, with networking opportunities afterwards.

The day also touched on Hybrid Events and how they, in their very nature, support making events more sustainable and the day  included a presentation on Engagement Technology by AVT Connect.

We had a fantastic response to the event and would like to thank all who came along and joined us in the debate. We hope everyone took away some interesting information and  useful ideas on how to make your event or venue a more sustainable one.
