EE MUSIC: UK and IE Train-the-Expert Day Course

Venue: Sound Advice, Tileyard Studios, N7 9AH London

Date: 29 September, 2014 ; 11:00 – 17:30

Rising energy costs and an increased interest in environmental sustainability is making sustainable energy management a growing topic of importance in the music event production industry, but there is frequently a knowledge barrier preventing effective action. Looking to scale up existing good practise and skills, EE MUSIC is the largest energy awareness campaign in the history of the European music event industry.

Our special train-the-expert courses are aimed at energy consultants who do not have experience working with the music event industry, as well as venue and club facilities managers and production professionals with an interest in acting as ‘multipliers’ for good practice in the industry. We’ll be focusing on energy management in small to medium sized indoor clubs and venues, but anyone working with very large venues is also likely to benefit.

This day-long event is a unique chance to gain insight into the specialist knowledge and data built up by Julie’s Bicycle through our work with the cultural and creative industries since 2007; as well as the knowledge of our EE MUSIC partners including the Green Music Initiative in Germany and TerraSystemics in Portugal. We will be covering topics including industry benchmarks, specific club and music venue energy hotspots and equipment, and case studies from exemplary venues and clubs.
