Most event planners care deeply about the carbon footprint of our events, but oftentimes, with limited resources and budget, it can be difficult to figure out how to make a difference and where to start. The venue you select for your event can play a huge role on the sustainability impact of your event.

Romina Kwong, Founder of Eco Friendly Events, will join Anh Nguyen for an interactive discussion as she shares specific tips, checklists, and questions that you can ask to evaluate how sustainability conscious a venue is. Whether you’re evaluating a new venue from scratch or you’re working with a venue that has already been selected, she’ll share actions you can take to reduce the environmental impact of your event.
