The organiser of TiLE (Trends in Leisure and Entertainment) is to stage a one-day conference on sustainability during Euro Attractions Show (EAS) in Amsterdam on October 1.
Taking on the second day of EAS (a Thursday), TiLEzone will examine sustainable approaches to developing and operating leisure attractions, and the issues and opportunities therein. The event follows the fourth TiLEzone London back in March, which explored a similar theme.
If you’ve ever wondered why you should go green at your park or attraction, then consider this: It could make you money. Seminar speakers will prove how sustainable technologies and design can improve the profitability of leisure venues and attractions, as well as improve their public perception.
Sustainable innovation, marketing, energy use and materials are all on the agenda, plus questions such as what motivates us to do the ‘right thing’ and if, in financially turbulent times, we can afford not to be sustainable.
Speakers lined up include Ray Hole of Ray Hole Architects, Robert Simpson from Electrosonic, Professor Doug King of Bath University (England), Martin Charter from the University for Creative Arts and Aqua Leisure’s Roger Currie, who will provide advice on reducing the environmental impact of for waterparks.
TiLEzone at EAS takes place at the RAI in Amsterdam from 0930 to 1500 on Thursday, October 1. Registration is €100 for IAAPA and TEA members and €150 for all others. The fee includes all coffee breaks, a networking lunch and free access to the show floor at EAS (normally €32/42).
