Going Green with Gevme: Your Digital Partner in the Journey to Sustainability

Sustainable event planning: The need of the hour

As the world becomes increasingly conscious of its impact on the environment, sustainable event planning is gaining momentum. Events can have a significant environmental impact, with wastage and carbon footprint being major concerns. In fact, a study by MeetGreen showed that an in-person event that holds an average of 1000 attendees produces approximately 530 metric tons of CO2.

As event planners, it’s our responsibility to reduce this impact and move towards more eco-friendly practices. By making small changes, we can collectively make a significant difference. This is where Gevme comes in. With its digital event management platform, Gevme is the ideal partner to help you plan and execute sustainable events that don’t compromise on attendee experience.

Benefits of sustainable event planning

Sustainable event planning has numerous benefits that extend beyond just being environmentally friendly. In fact, prioritizing sustainability can significantly enhance the overall experience for event organizers and attendees alike. Research has shown that brands that prioritize sustainability tend to have higher satisfaction rates, improve brand perception, and lead to better ROI.

This study on virtual conferences rightfully points out, while online conferences produce significantly fewer carbon emissions than in-person events, they still have an impact. The findings show that a one-day virtual conference with 200 participants produces carbon emissions equivalent to driving 3,300 miles or burning around 1,500 pounds of coal.

At Gevme, we believe in complete transparency about our journey towards sustainability. Rather than just greenwashing and claiming that all digital is sustainable, we aim to be a true digital partner in your sustainability efforts.

Digital delight: Sustainable solutions for attendee experience

One of the biggest challenges in sustainable event planning is reducing paper waste without sacrificing the attendee experience. Fortunately, Gevme makes it easy to go digital with features like digital handouts, menus, and brochures, QR codes for exhibitor listings and namecards, and live streaming for remote attendees.

But what sets Gevme apart is its user-friendly platform, which makes it simple for event planners to implement these sustainable solutions. With drag-and-drop functionality, customizable templates, and real-time updates, Gevme takes the guesswork out of digital event planning, allowing planners to focus on creating an unforgettable experience for attendees.

Plus, going digital doesn’t have to mean sacrificing interactivity. With features like live polling, Q&A sessions, and many third party tool support, Gevme’s platform encourages engagement and interaction between attendees, making it easy to create a sustainable event that is both informative and engaging.

Sustainable branding that will leave an impression

Traditional signage and advertising can create a lot of waste, but Gevme’s digital signage solutions can help you reduce that waste while still creating a memorable and impactful branding experience.

By using digital screens placed at strategic locations throughout your event, you can display relevant information to attendees in real-time. For example, you can use a “Live Agenda” displayed on a large screen in front of the entrance to a session room, which displays the current session, moderator, speakers involved, and upcoming sessions.

Not only does this reduce paper waste, but it also creates a more interactive and engaging experience for attendees. You can also display personalized messages to attendees as they enter the venue or create customized sponsorship packages that include digital signage displays.

Swag bags reinvented

One of the biggest culprits of waste at events is the goodie bag. But with Gevme’s swag bag experience, you can create a sustainable and personalized experience for attendees. Instead of traditional giveaways, the swag bag experience provides attendees with digital content and personalized recommendations based on their interests and preferences. This not only reduces waste but also creates a more impactful and memorable experience for attendees.

Mini-experiences, major impact

Another way Gevme can help you reduce your event’s carbon footprint is through its mini-experiences. By providing a range of digital solutions for programs, agendas, and other information, Gevme helps minimize the need for paper handouts and brochures.

For instance, instead of printing out hundreds of event programs and schedules, you can simply provide a digital version that attendees can access on their smartphones or other devices. This not only reduces waste but also makes it easier for attendees to keep track of the schedule and find their way around the event.

Gevme’s mini-experiences also include QR codes for exhibitor listings, so attendees can easily access information about vendors and sponsors without the need for physical handouts. Additionally, Gevme offers tools for networking and engagement, such as live polls and surveys, which can help create a more interactive and engaging experience for attendees.

By leveraging Gevme’s digital solutions for mini-experiences, you can help reduce your event’s impact on the environment while still providing attendees with the information and engagement they need to have a successful experience.
