Sustainable Design in Event Design: Opportunities and Limitations

S'harin Binti Mokhtar and Yi-Shin Deng
Abstract—Events offer valuable economic, social, cultural and educational benefits, and potential growth in tourism for many international destinations. As society gains a greater understanding about these impacts, events are being challenged to become more accountable for their managerial decisions and to produce outcomes which are more sustainable on multiple criteria and have positive environmental impacts. The purpose of this study was to discuss sustainable design in event design. Literature review will be conducted in this study as the research methodology. The aims of this study are (1) to discuss the opportunities of sustainable design in event design; (2) to discuss the limitations of sustainable design in event design. Lastly, findings from this study will provide insights on the opportunities of sustainable design in event design to develop better sustainable events in the future and limitations that have to overcome before a sustainable event been organize.
