Welcome to the Sustainable Event Alliance (SEA), an association which aims to inspire events, organisers, venues and supply chain to be as sustainable as possible and promote Scotland as a sustainable event destination.
Scotland loves events. From top exhibition and conference centres to music festivals which attract worldwide audiences, Scotland boasts a wide range of events, facilities and resources which make it one of the leading event destinations in the world.
However, it is important that Scotland is responsible towards its environment, people and economy in its event planning to keep the country’s event industry prosperous and sustainable. The SEA hopes to engage the Scottish event industry in sustainability, to uncover what sustainability initiatives already exist in the country and to inspire the industry and its suppliers to action.
On the run up to the Year of Natural Scotland 2013, Homecoming 2014 and the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, now is the perfect time to engage with the SEA. Events, organisers, local councils, venues and suppliers are invited to work together with the SEA to create a sustainable event industry and showcase Scotland as a sustainable event destination.
