Darmstadtium to host greenmeetings and events conference 2013

The next greenmeetings and events conference will be held from 26 to 27 February 2013 at the darmstadtium centre in Darmstadt. The initiators and organisers of the conference for the organisation of sustainable events are the German Convention Bureau (GCB) and the European Association of Event Centres (EVVC).

Matthias Schultze, Managing Director of the GCB, says: "This year's greenmeetings and events conference showed that there is a strong awareness of this issue in the industry. With the 2013 conference we will continue with our successful concept and take the topic of green meetings much further than the ecological aspect. We also want to integrate social issues like CSR, workplace comfort and compliance in the discussion and strengthen Germany's position as a meetings destination."

"The conference venue will also set a good example for sustainable events in Germany. The darmstadtium centre combines an energy-efficient construction with an outstanding creative architecture and a sustainable overall concept. It serves as a perfect example that green meetings are not only economical but can also be attractive," said EVVC President Joachim König.

Opened in 2008, darmstadtium science and convention centre makes comprehensive use of geothermal energy, biomass and solar energy so that it can run almost entirely on renewable energy sources. In late 2010, the centre received the Green Globe eco-label. Its shareholders are Darmstadt Technical University and Darmstadt Science City.

Lars Wöhler, darmstadtium's Managing Director, said: "Our sustainability management is an important factor for us in national and international competition. The greenmeetings and events conference gives us a good opportunity to demonstrate our high level of expertise in the field of sustainable meetings."
