GL events UK has launched a Good Event Guide – offering event organisers “a smorgasbord of tips and ideas on what a good event could look like”.

The guide takes a look into sustainability, exploring the relevance of CSR and the importance of health and wellbeing in the events community today.

Featuring commentary from: Nick Morgan – We are the Fair, Selina Donald – The Bulb, and Claire O’Neill – A Greener Festival, the guide covers a range of topics including; top tips for going green, the business of sustainability and case studies on events that have displayed good practice. The guide is in digital format and accessible to anyone within the industry.

Rachel Baker, group marketing manager at GL events UK, commented: “Over the course of this journey we’ve worked with some brilliant people with great ideas and so, in true GL events style, we have produced an online guide to creating ‘good’ events. We’ve called it a smorgasbord of ideas, inspiration, top tips and comments from all the people we’ve met over the years, and who have something to say on this important subject.

“The guide isn’t just about CSR, sustainability and all things green though. It covers health and wellness within teams, how to build a strong event culture and all sorts of other areas that mean it’s not just about green events, but ‘good’ events.

“We think it’s really important to identify that sometimes events can’t be good, and that’s ok! All we can do as event professionals who care, is approach our next event with the right attitude, and for us at GL events, this is about wanting to be ‘good’. It’s about wanting to minimise impacts where possible, and this is what we hope the guide will help inspire.”
