Data In...Results Out!

Green meeting practices are moving towards mainstream, new standards are appearing and measurement and reporting have become the name of the game. Our work required a more robust calculator to assess client’s meetings and events. It was time to revise the MeetGreen® Calculator and we did just that.

Today we launch the updated Calculator which integrates the proposed APEX/ASTM Green Meetings and Events Standards and the British Standard for Sustainable Events (BS8901) for your use.

We've expanded the tool to assess over 160 event management practices and measurable outcomes related to sustainability across the following the ten key categories, including aspects of BS 8901 for Sustainable Events and proposed APEX/ASTM Green Meetings and Events Standards:

Audio Visual
Destination Selection
Meeting Venue
Food & Beverage
Exhibition Production
Communications and Marketing
Onsite Office

Several of the reports included with the MeetGreen® Calculator show your conference data compared against other events. A new feature allows you to sort this information by the size of your event.

Long story short, if you are interested in measurement and need a tool to assist your reporting, take a look, try the demo and see if it works as well for you as it does for us.
