How Can I Save Money On My Next Event?

Let's see, perhaps we can...

  • Serve beverages in pitchers like lemonade instead of individual soft drinks
  • Reduce the size of our program
  • Eliminate the conference bag
  • Meet in a location that doesn't require shuttle service
  • Offer a virtual option for speakers and participants
  • Provide one vegetarian meal per day
  • Ask exhibitors not to bring handouts to reduce our garbage hauling
  • Guarantee our food with close and accurate numbers
  • Take advantage of the discounts hotel chains are offering if we run a green meeting
  • and the list goes on!

What one thing can you easily accomplish in 2012 to save money on your events?
