Edmonton is putting sustainable events first

Welcome to Edmonton

Edmonton is a vibrant urban center in the heart of the wilderness, the largest northernmost metropolis, and the capital of Alberta, Canada. Experience what 18 hours of sunlight a day fees like in the summer, or how the first snowfall transforms the river valley in winter. No matter the season, Edmonton is made for exploring.

Sustainability in Edmonton

We know that lot of little changes can go a long way, paper over plastic, eat local, ride transit when you can, but we started thinking, what if we went big? What if we changed how business events operate in Edmonton? So, our team got to work finding local businesses, venues, farmers, artists, and entrepreneurs who are as passionate about sustainability as we are. Then we stacked our team with sustainability experts who are up to date on the latest research and trends. Now, not only can we help you offset your flights and reduce the carbon footprint of your event, but we can also make sure you don’t have to compromise quality or your budget for a completely unforgettable, and environmentally sustainable, event.

Tune into our LinkedIn Live

To help our followers learn more about hosting sustainable events, Explore Edmonton’s Sustainably team went live this past October with moderator Leanne Calderwood to answer the Top 5 Common Questions About Carbon Neutral Events.

You can tune into the recording of the live event here where you’ll learn about carbon neutrality, the importance of it, the data required, and how Explore Edmonton’s Business Events team can seamlessly help integrate carbon neutrality into your next event.

Edmonton Joins the World of Hybrid Meetings

Hybrid meetings are an important way forward for the event industry to return to live formats. This format provides a wider reach of your conference. In a hybrid meeting, some participants are attending in-person and other participants are connecting virtually at the same time. For Edmonton, joining the Hybrid City Alliance means we have the know-how and are committed to helping you host a hybrid or multi-hub event.
