GO Group @ Exit Festival – seminar for eastern festivals

Greener, smarter, more sustainable – the GO Group credo is becoming more and more important to the European events industry. Festivals from all over the continent take part in the process and we really want to see all the others follow. EXIT Festival and GO Group are proud to announce the first „GO Group Workshop for eastern European Festivals“ taking place during this year’s EXIT Festival. We offer this interactive, open and communicative workshop format to stimulate exchange, cooperation and inspiration – between event organizers, suppliers and all other parties involved in an event’s orginazation.

This is interesting for festival managers and people working in produczion as well. We are trying to show an overall approach for those not yet deep in the topic, presenting reasons, solutions and fields of action as well as festival case studies from events you probably all know!

The 2-day workshop at the Town Hall of Novi Sad on July 11 and 12 2013 is for free to eastern European events invited personally by EXIT Festival or GO Group – binding registration by mail required. The GO Group Workshop for eastern European festivals will provide a wider view on sustainable event management, case studies from major European festivals (f.e. Glastonbury, Sziget and Rock For People) and initiatives (such as A Greener Festival, Green Music Initiative and GreenEvents Europe), best practise examples and more.
