Podcast: Next-Generation Green Events and Meetings—Who Cares Now? Who Leads Now?

Green planning in 2016, and where the trend is headed next.

April 26, 2016, 7:00 AM EDT

Hosts: Audrey Gallien and Brandt Krueger
Guests: Nancy Zavada

Are “green events” now the standard? What is really motivating meeting professionals and venues to choose to “go green” in 2016? In this episode, hosts Brandt Krueger and Audrey Gallien are joined by Nancy Zavada, CMP, founder and president of MeetGreen, who has worked with organizations to integrate leading event sustainability practices since 1994. The group discusses how we've gone from green to sustainable to healthy, what really matters to millennials, who in the event industry is leading sustainable planning, and more. Gallien and Krueger also feature the first GatherGeeks listener-submitted Fresh List, discussing what's in and what's out in the industry.
