Allez, les verts! GO Group in Paris on april 8 & 9


Greener, smarter, more sustainable – the GO Group credo is becoming more and more important to the European events industry. Festivals from all over the continent take part in the process and we really want to see all the others follow. That’s why GO Group set up this interactive, open and communicative workshop format to stimulate exchange, cooperation and inspiration – between event organizers, suppliers and science.

Hotel de Ville / Paris

Now it’s time for the 3rd international GO Group workshop in Paris. We kindly invite you to this 2-day seminar at the Hôtel de Ville (Town Hall of the City of Paris), on April 8 and 9 2013. The workshop is kindly hosted by We Love Green Festival, Paris and supported by Azimuth Productions, Paris.
