Events Exchange featuring encore! is currently under redesign, but click to sign up today to receive important campus-related event news and encore! event supply recycling leads.
The Events Exchange program launched in September 2009 with the goal of bringing campus event planners, vendors, and service providers together to share knowledge and event best practices. It began with in-person presentations and moved in October 2011 to emoryevents.com as a 24/7 events community blog. New vendors, changes to campus logistics/policies, lessons learned, etc. are all posted with the opportunity for viewers to comment and add to the information. This online emoryevents.com allows for searchable archives and encourages comment and participation from the entire events community.
encore! was developed to help facilitate the recycling, re-purposing, and reuse of event supplies (floral, packaged food, rentals, etc.) which may otherwise go to waste. Using encore! saves university funds, enhances events, and helps promote eco-friendly event practices by eliminating waste and unnecessary energy usage. In fact, using encore! at or after your next event is one of the steps in Emory's green-event certification process. There is no cost associated with this program. We only ask that any organization receiving an item from this system re-posts it on encore! as long as the item is still viable for re-use.
