Top tips for a sustainable event visit

Have you ever considered your ecological footprint when attending an event?

As we prepare to welcome you to Seatrade Maritime Salvage & Wreck, we’ve put together a [quick-read] guide where we present six simple - yet high-impact - ways to ensure your visit to #SalvageConf this December is not only productive, but also, aligns with the core principals of environmental responsibility.

As an industry, let’s not just advocate for sustainability, let’s set the example.

   1) Opt for public transport.

With the Seatrade Maritime Salvage & Wreck being hosted in England’s capital city of London, you’re truly spoilt for choice with public transport links to the venue.

Here’s just a few you can choose from to get to Leonardo Royal Hotel London City, 8-14 Cooper's Row, London, EC3N 2BQ.

  • Underground
  • DLR
  • National rail
  • Cycling
  • Bus

For more information about your nearest stations and where to park your bicycle, please visit our helpful webpage here.

  2) Consider carpool or ridesharing.

If public transportation isn't an option, consider carpooling or ridesharing to reduce the number of vehicles on the road.

And, if you’re not sure if you know anyone else who is going, that makes now the perfect time to start boosting your profile!

In just two clicks, you can share your personalised LinkedIn banner to begin connecting with other attendees, invite your network and let key stakeholders know that you’ll be at #SalvageConf this December.

    3) Don’t discard your visitor badge!

Please don't let your badge go to waste! Instead, consider its sustainable potential.

We’d be delighted to collect your used lanyard and badge before you leave. This way, you can be confident that they will be disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.

4) Reduce single-use plastics.

Plastic is deeply connected to our industry, especially those designed for single-use purposes. They have a detrimental impact on our oceans and marine life. Therefore, by making a conscious effort to cut down on single-use plastics during your visit, you can contribute to the preservation of the marine environment.

It doesn’t have to be much! A couple of really easy ways to do this is: Bring a reusable water bottle and make use of the designated recycle and waste disposal bins onsite.

Top tip: Why not consider a reusable coffee cup? Not only will it keep your coffee warmer for longer, but it which will also save energy used on washing up.

    5) Stay in Eco-Friendly Accommodations.

If you’ll be requiring a hotel whilst visiting Seatrade Maritime Salvage & Wreck, make sure to consider eco-conscious hotels. Prioritise those with a focus on energy efficiency, waste reduction and water conservation.
