TiLEzone will demonstrate how using sustainable technologies and design techniques can improve profitability, as well as the public perception of attractions like theme parks, museums, heritage sites and retail and leisure developments.

Increasing energy, raw material and waste disposal costs, have combined to make sustainable issues a financial as well as a moral imperative. Operators and suppliers will learn first-hand about products that reduce power consumption, pollution and wastage, and capture carbon, and how these can make businesses more competitive.

The seminar programme will cover a wide range of green technologies, including renewable and low energy sources and products for heating, lighting, media and building applications. It will also look at what national and EC grants are available.

Presentations from leisure venue operators who are promoting the cause of sustainability to the public, will explain how and why they are practicing what they preach. To encourage an exchange of ideas, the TiLEzone will be interspersed with discussions and Q&A sessions.

Richard Curtis of organiser Andrich International said: "This event gives the industry both a benchmark for current practices and insight into what’s on the horizon. Those who are serious about their future cannot afford to miss it."
