What is sustainable event planning?

Sustainable, or “green” event management aims to achieve the event goals strictly through environmental and socially sustainable practices. They choose renewable energy, socially responsible suppliers, and local produce whenever possible. Stakeholders and vendors are required to adhere to sustainability principles.

An event is not possible without its guests, so transporting them to the event venue is still essential. The main focus of sustainable event transportation is to accomplish this task while minimizing its carbon footprint.

Thanks in part to evolving technology, transporting event attendees by bus is the third most sustainable choice after asking the guests to walk or cycle. Using Bus.com bus charters allows event managers to transport up to 55 guests at once, replacing 20 to 25 private cars.

During the festival, the Quartier des spectacles hosts over 500 shows and concerts from over 3000 performers from across the world.
