HeadBox launches new AI event tool to simplify sustainable choices


Event technology business HeadBox has launched a new AI-powered platform to simplify the event planning process and help event planners choose the most sustainable venue based on their travel requirements.

The new software presents venue options that meet the booker’s event requirements including location, capacity, facilities and more. In addition to the venue sourcing platform, HeadBox has released ‘Journeys’, a sustainability tool that allows event planners to calculate their emissions. It works by allowing event planners to enter attendees’ travel details so they can compare the projected travel emissions for each venue option provided and see which is the lowest.

“Journeys was built into the new business events technology through demand from our corporate clients to have a clearer understanding of carbon impact when choosing their venue,” said HeadBox CEO Ali Lord.

“In our commitment to supporting them with their event planning, we wanted to also offer a tool that could support them in achieving their sustainability goals. This is the start of a really exciting path for us.”
