Sustainability and CSR

"I can't say enough about your registration staff... They all went that extra mile to help our attendees... The Opening Reception was a truly outstanding event. The marvelous food was enhanced by your decorations... "

Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are becoming increasingly important to delegates and all other stakeholders. Both of these factors play an important role in Venue West’s business model. We have adopted many initiatives in our office to reduce our environmental impact and are key supporters of the Canadian charity Junior Undiscovered Math Prodigies, JUMP, (please see our website for more information).

Implementing a sustainability strategy is shown to increase attendee’s commitment to an association and does not have to increase the budget, in fact it can reduce costs in some areas. Our sustainability strategies encompass all aspects of the Conference, including the food and beverage, exhibition, production, suppliers, conference materials, marketing, communication and volunteering.
