Event managers bringing their event to Los Angeles benefit from easy access to special effects equipment, props, and celebrities to accommodate any concept. LA offers a wide choice of venues as well as accessible, professional catering and event services.
Bus.com offers a variety of chauffeured charter buses to fit any event, number of guests, and schedule. Multiple types of buses can be rented simultaneously to create a “perfect mix” for every day of the event. If you’re wondering which bus type is right for you, here’s a quick guide.
Green or sustainable event management relies on sustainability principles to achieve the event’s goals with minimal negative environmental footprint and maximum positive social impact.
Both stakeholders and vendors are expected to follow sustainable practices at every stage of planning, organization, and implementation of the event. Best practices include using a renewable energy source to power the event’s equipment, using local farms produce for catering, choosing biodegradable materials for disposable elements of decoration, etc.
The most environmentally-friendly forms of transportation are walking, cycling, and using a bus. A bus is a large vehicle, but it transports up to 55 event attendants at once. Compared to individual or family cars, using the Bus.com bus rental produces twice less harmful CO2 emissions per event.
