Plastic was eliminated from the entire event. In the catering area, we replaced plastic with other materials, such as cardboard and palm leaves. In addition, we provided a recycling system for all disposable waste. The cuisine we offered was also adapted to the 'green list', to avoid species that are intensively fished and are at risk of extinction.
In addition, both the building and the equipment were completely adapted to the theme of the congress. Thus, the names of the auditoriums and other spaces, which have recently been redesigned to offer customers more break-out rooms, were changed to those of African countries, and the music to access and leave the auditoria was transformed into lion roars, bird and whale songs and gorilla grunts.
At the same time, our exhibition area brought together several companies showcasing innovative products related to animal welfare and nature conservation, such as toys and food for elephants and other species. Participants were also treated to a variety of unique experiences including 3D diving in the Bahamas and swimming with sharks without leaving the building.
