Through Ecowise – our innovative environmental program – we support event planners and guests in their endeavours to adopt eco-friendly measures at meetings and events to reduce their impact on the environment.
The Centre’s commitment to environmental awareness saw it become one of the first convention centres in the world to be awarded the Green Globe Silver certification.
