November 10, 20148:30AM - 9:30AM ET"Sustainability Standards and Your Event" Jaime Nack, Founder & President, Three Squares Inc.
Every gathering — from a local food festival to a major event like the Olympics — has economic, social and environmental impacts. Water and energy resources are expended, and significant waste and carbon emissions can be generated. In June 2012, coinciding with the London Olympics, a new international standard, ISO 20121, was published for the events industry, offering specific guidelines for implementing sustainable practices. Do your events comply? Jaime Nack, a leading sustainable event producer, will draw from her extensive event production portfolio to show how all event professionals can implement simple sustainability practices that are both tailored to their business objectives and meet the requirements of ISO 20121. Highlighted case studies will include the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, and Comedy Central's Rally to Restore Sanity in 2010, which drew a crowd of 500,000 to the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
