With decades in the marquee industry, we’ve witnessed a significant transformation. Gone are the days of single-use, throw-away event setups. Today, the narrative has shifted towards sustainability. This is not just a trend but a necessity, as we strive to minimise our ecological footprint while maximising the impact of every event we are part of.

In outdoor events, particularly those spread over vast landscapes and multiple locations, the challenge of maintaining eco-friendly practices can seem daunting. Yet, it’s a challenge we embrace wholeheartedly at Purvis. Our mission? To be the problem-solving physical infrastructure specialists that every outdoor event specialist needs on their team.

How we achieve eco-friendly elegance through innovative practices that could inspire your next event:

Reducing, Reusing, and Recycling: A Triple Threat to Waste

Our approach to sustainability begins at the very foundation — the marquees themselves. Made from high-quality, recyclable materials, our marquees are designed to withstand multiple uses without compromising on style or safety. This durability is crucial, considering the scale and frequency of large outdoor events.

Moreover, the logistical aspect of setting up at multiple sites simultaneously has been refined to reduce carbon emissions. Strategic planning and coordination ensure that transport routes are optimised, and vehicle loads are maximised, thereby decreasing the number of trips required. As highlighted in a recent feature by Event Industry News, efficient logistics are key to sustainable event management.

Energy Efficiency: Lighting the Way

Lighting can transform an event, but it can also lead to excessive energy consumption. At Purvis, we use LED lighting solutions which not only consume less energy but also enhance the ambience of our marquees. These LEDs, paired with energy-efficient generators and solar panels, provide a reliable, greener alternative to traditional power sources.

Water Conservation: Every Drop Counts

For events that span days and accommodate thousands, water usage can skyrocket. Our water management systems are designed to reduce this consumption. From installing low-flow taps, every measure contributes to a larger goal of conservation. An insightful piece by Access All Areas magazine recently discussed the innovative water-saving strategies that are becoming standard at large events, highlighting the industry’s commitment to sustainability.

The Future is Green

The journey towards eco-friendly event hosting is ongoing, and innovation is at its heart. As we look to the future, Purvis is excited about the possibilities of biodegradable materials and further advancements in energy-efficient technologies. By collaborating with event professionals like you, we can continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in sustainable event infrastructure.

Outdoor events, let us consider not just the immediate impact of our gatherings, but the legacy they leave behind. For in the end, isn’t it all about creating memories without lasting footprints?
