March event roundup
It’s been a month packed full of events for GECA – here’s our recap of some of the biggest events on the calendar so far!
Alongside Zenith Interiors, GECA were Display Sponsors for Green Cities (6-8 March). Along with the range of inspiring talks from throughout the event, we loved being able to provide delegates with a beautiful sustainable gift: old plastic bottles and cotton cone reels re-purposed into potted plants. They were very well received!
Next was the HIA Sydney Home Show from 24-26 March. We teamed up with tiny house experts The New Joneses to demonstrate practical but stylish ways to design a sustainable, healthy home. GECA licensees KE-ZU supplied beautiful furniture for the event, and Kate Harris spoke about the benefits of choosing third-party certified products for the home.
From 29– 30 March, we saw two days of discussion and discovery for facilities management professionals at Total Facilities. Kate spoke on a panel discussion on why energy efficiency and sustainability still matter, and we reached hundreds of industry professionals across the two days. Thanks to Camatic for providing some of their GECA certified seats to showcase.
Sydney Build 2017 was the last event, held over 30-31 March, where GECA exhibited to the construction and building industries. Kate brought the message of sustainability and the importance of certified products to her workshop on sustainable building, which was well attended by people from the education and health industries as well as construction industry professionals.
It was fantastic to see a growing interest and a strong focus on sustainability across all of these events. We’d especially like to thank our wonderful licensees for contributing samples and brochures for us to showcase at our stands – and thanks to everyone who stopped by to say hello, or attended a GECA presentation!
