Six Steps to a Zero Waste Event

Speaker: Julia Spangler

Waste often seems inevitable in the events industry, but following a few simple steps will enable you to dramatically reduce the amount of waste generated by your events, plus produce meaningful measurements that will make your clients look like sustainability rock stars.

In this session, you’ll learn the six steps of the zero waste event planning process. This process can be used by any planner—at any level of experience with sustainability—to implement a waste reduction practice that yields powerful results.

After this session, you will be able to:

  • Identify opportunities to reduce waste at your events
  • Form successful partnerships to divert waste from the landfill
  • Guide guest behavior with effective communication of waste diversion efforts



This program has been submitted to the Events Industry Council for CMP Preferred Provider review.
