Six Steps to a Zero Waste Event


Do you ever wonder how you can cut down on event waste at your property?  How many times do you have attendees/planners asking what your company does to cut down on extra food waste?   What do you do to save energy or reduce your use of electricity?

Join us on Thursday, October 25th at The Ridge Hotel in Lake Geneva, as Julia Spangler presents the ins and outs of how to reduce waste at events. Julia's interactive session will keep attendees engaged as she explains the Six Steps to a Zero Waste Event.

After the session, we will board for a lake cruise hosted by Lake Geneva Cruise Line. During the cruise, The Ridge Hotel will provide appetizers and one drink ticket per person, including a cash bar. There will also be a shuttle service to and from the boat cruise, offered by The Ridge Hotel. We encourage you to come early or stay late to enjoy all that Lake Geneva has to offer. 

Don’t forget to visit one of our complimentary MPI 101 session before lunch!   Are you new to MPI or would like to learn more about MPI and how to get involved? MPI 101 is the right place for you to be!  New and veteran members welcome!  Join us before lunch for this complimentary informative session!
