About the event

For conscious planners, couples, and industry professionals looking to make their event or wedding more sustainable.

Join us at Paikka for a curated event featuring intentionally designed discussions, a pop-up vendor lounge, tastings, and creative connections that offer an experience for couples and event industry professionals looking to make their event more environmentally conscious.

This two-part event features discussions from top event industry leaders on sustainable event tips and designing inclusive spaces, followed by an open marketplace to meet conscious-minded caterers, florists, photographers, and more.

Whether you are passionate and seeking like-minded community or just looking for sustainability ideas to get you started, explore the many ways to align your event or wedding with your values!


Hear from event industry leaders on how they have incorporated sustainability and social good into their businesses and events. These sessions are geared towards the industry and anyone who hosts events, but all are welcome to attend!

From 5:30 - 8 pm, we invite engaged couples, planners, and anyone who hosts events, to join us for a pop-up in Paikka’s breathtaking space, with amazing sips, delicious bites, and a chance to meet local vendors who can share more on their creatively conscious approach. Every vendor has been invited for their commitments to both ethics and aesthetics, so you can make a choice that aligns with your values and makes an impact at your next event.

Come join us for an evening of conscious connection while experiencing Paikka’s modern, artful space and a celebration of their first-of-its-kind Sustainability Program.

Beyond a night of savory snacks & sips, guests receive access to a full sustainable vendor list, discounts, a free 101 sustainable event guide, and, more. One tree will be planted through One Tree Planted for every in-person attendee!

The event is free but there will be a suggested donation with proceeds benefitting Second Harvest Heartland, a nonprofit dedicated to reducing food waste and hunger.
