What Is A “Green Meeting”?
A green meeting or event is identified as one that incorporates environmental considerations to minimize its negative impact on the environment.
Green conventions or meetings are conducted in ways to minimize the environmental burdens imposed by such activities. Green meeting and event planners, like Kellen, apply environmentally-friendly practices to all aspects of conferences and events, including site selection, resource and energy use, waste management, travel and local transportation, food provision and disposal, as well as management and purchasing decisions.
Why Go Green?

Utilize paperless technologies to provide attendees with quick and efficient options for online registration, meeting information retrieval, check-in and more.
- Going Green Saves Green
Recycling name badges and other commonly used supplies can save thousands of dollars over time.
