Green Events & Innovations Conference (GEI) 2018

The Green Events & Innovations Conference (GEI) is A Greener Festival’s annual flagship event delivered in partnership with the International Live Music Conference (ILMC).

To mark the tenth anniversary of the Green Events & Innovations Conference, we are creating a Quick-Fire Pitch Session aimed at new and innovative businesses. This session will provide a platform for five start-ups who are dedicated to improving the environmental impact of events, enabling them to showcase their service, product or innovation to an audience of over 100 decision-makers from the festivals and events industry, and to further share details of their innovation with A Greener Festival’s environmentally conscious membership.

Innovative businesses are vital and instrumental in the quest for sustainable events. This is where people with passion and drive turn their great ideas into useful and helpful actions that really make a difference. We want to help propagate these solutions by offering this pitching platform at GEI10.”
Claire O’Neill, Co-founder, A Greener Festival.

Start-ups must apply in advance to be considered for the five-minute pitches, which will take place during GEI10 on Tuesday 6 March at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington High St, London, the day before the International Live Music Conference (ILMC).

The pitches are available to any start-up with an innovative product or service that might be of interest to the GEI delegation. However, please note that only applicants that register for GEI10 will be allocated a pitch.

To submit your innovation, please click This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and include the following information:

Applications are invited from start-ups anywhere in the world. The only requirement is that you have a viable, proven, market-ready solution that can help festivals and events to improve their environmental or social impact in 2018 and beyond.
