Green Events Austria Gala 2017 at the Salzburg Exhibition & Congress Center
The most sustainable events in Austria were awarded on 4th of May at the Salzburg Exhibition & Congress Center by federal minister Andrä Rupprechter and deputy governor Astrid Rössler.
The category “celebration” was awarded to the pupils of the HTL Salzburg, who organized their ball at the Exhibition and Congress Center Salzburg according to criteria of the Austrian Ecolabel, in autumn 2016.
“I’m particularly pleased, that with the ball of the HTL Salzburg an event of our state is represented. The young pupils, which were responsible for the organization, set a clear sign for the environmental and climate protection and earn this award for an outstanding sustainable celebration” appreciates deputy governor Astrid Rössler, about the ball, which was licensed by the Exhibition and Congress Center Salzburg in October 2016.
The competition “nachhaltig gewinnen!” took place for the 6th time. Criteria for a nomination are the broad impact of an event, creative and innovative solutions with an inspiring example for activities within the association and event industry.
In 2016 about 100 events and associations with more than 1.4 million organizers and guests from all federal states of Austria and South Tirol participated in the contest.
