Sustainable Tourism at The Green Expo
Following the success of the first Green Expo, held at the Cape Town International Conference Centre (CTICC) in November 2011, the 2013 Green Expo will be held at two locations on different dates; from 1-3 November at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg and from 29 November to 1 December at the CTICC in Cape Town.
Three City Events, the organizers of the Green Expo have been actively involved in the greening of the event industry and have an active involvement in the newly formed “Event Greening Forum.” Recent events have had the carbon footprint minimised with the balance being offset with renewable energy certificates, making the expos carbon neutral. In addition Three City Events have, wherever possible, supported local small businesses as suppliers and exhibitors following the principles of the triple bottom line.
This year, the Green Expo have secured National Geographic Channel as the official Headline sponsor to the event. This is a natural fit for both organisations who have a shared concern for the climate change issues affecting the planet and the preservation of endangered species.
National Geographic Channel joins Simply Green and the Tourism Tattler Trade Journal as media partners, in a powerful voice for eco-conscious people in South Africa.
