Topics discussed with all parties involved (promoters, venues, suppliers etc.) such as green basics in event management, smart mobility management, renewables in concert, social projects and (major) events, green sponsorship or do people behave better in a clean environment? among others – on the basis of practical questions from promoters and the point of view of all parties involved.
