Jo Ruddock 28 September 2010

More details have been released about the first online conference and exhibition focusing on sustainability and green issues for the professional audio and video industry.

Taking place on Wednesday 10 November, 2010 and hosted by PSNE and Installation Europe, you can attend SustainabilityAV 2010 from you’re the comfort of your office desk.

Topics to be discussed and presented have now been confirmed. The schedule runs as follows: ‘Creative Thinking’ (how manufacturers are developing solutions to achieve green goals); ‘Energy Audit’ (how to map and reduce the carbon profile of your business); ‘Corporate Conscience’ (justifying budgets in the stustainable world); and ‘A Greener Installation’ (a look at the challenges and issues arising in state-of-the-art AV projects).

There will also be a keynote presentation from Matt Hastings of the Eden Project/Eden Sessions, and a closing international case study from Atlanta’s amazing Tree Sound Studios. Further contributions during the day will come from Hackney’s Premises Studios, Arup, Munro Acoustics, AECOM and sustainability collective Julie’s Bicycle.

"At SustainabilityAV 2010, we will be exploring the meaning of the statement ‘environmental sense makes business sense’  in colourful and fulfilling ways," says chair and PSNE editor Dave Robinson. "And with the conference being online, it’s going to be an entertaining and enlightening experience for all participants."

Installation Europe editor Paddy Baker adds: “From a pure installation point of view, the two online seminars I’m most interested in are the presentation from the Eden Project in the morning and the ‘greener installation’ session in the afternoon. But, not least because green AV is in its infancy, I’m sure that systems integrators and installers will find food for thought throughout the entire day’s programme."
