We’ll create dedicated opportunities for attendees to explore the latest in healthcare practices, all while embracing the multicultural landscape of Basel.
Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
We realize the impact large-scale events like BOOM 2024 could have on the environment, therefore sustainable production and consumption is one of our main priorities in the organization of the inaugural summit We have been working with our suppliers and the venue to ensure maximum positive change.
- Reducing paper waste: We’re taking steps to minimize printed materials. At BOOM Summit 2024, you won’t find a traditional program book. Instead, we’re offering a pocket-sized version that contains all the essential information you need – schedules, session details, and speaker profiles – ensuring convenience while reducing paper consumption.
- Locally-sourced, healthy meals: Our dedication to sustainability extends to the dining experience. We prioritize locally-sourced ingredients, supporting nearby farmers and cutting down on the carbon footprint associated with long-distance food transportation. This not only enhances the sustainability of our summit but also provides participants with healthier, more nutritious meals.
- Zero food waste: We’re committed to minimizing food waste. We collaborate with non-profit organizations to ensure that any leftover food finds its way to those in need, promoting both sustainability and social responsibility.
- Promoting sustainable development: In every aspect of organizing our event, we prioritize sustainability. We actively seek out sustainable options from our vendors, transparently communicate our efforts to improve, and encourage our partners and participants to join us in these endeavors. Together, we can make BOOM Summit a model of sustainable development.
