Associations Forum, Australia; Susan Careens of Interact fame, amid abounding others who talked about green, sustainability and the use of technology to accomplish for added able MICE operations. It was a acceptable assurance of advance in our bounded accommodation industry to see the afterward changes, admitting for the better: ; The appointment did not use any Styrofoam. Baptize was served in reusable glasses; coffee was served in cardboard cups and you could use a abiding brand to address your name on the cup, so you could reclaim it throughout the day.
