Green building blocks for your event planning

Dresden's conference hotels and venues consider their ecological footprint with measures such as climate-friendly LED lighting, renewable energies and waste avoidance and a focus on seasonal and regional food (see below). By the way, working with regional suppliers does not only play a role in catering. Dresden’s event agencies mainly book locally based artists and service partners. Not only does this give events the real “Dresden touch” but also keeps transport, delivery, and travel costs low.

Dresden's service partners also offer innovative digital communication tools, such as the "smartPoster" from Brähler Convention, which is a rentable digital tool that replaces conventional posters and thus saves paper, printing costs and working time. The event app from Dresden-based provider Lineupr provides a smart, digital solution for events without classic collateral in paper form.
