We have no time to waste

Founded in 2022, Sustainability in AV (SAVe) has already become a global force for change. Now is the time for our growing international membership to gather and harness our momentum in bringing the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to pro AV. And to do that, we need leaders. We need you. Join us in Los Angeles at UCLA’s Luskin Conference Center and discover how you can help lead the pro AV industry toward sustainability.

Get involved in a real way

Be a catalyst for change in an industry that not only needs to embrace sustainability, it hungers to do so. There’s a groundswell of support for our mission. All we have to do is activate and direct it. In whatever capacity you can contribute your time, talents and passion, know this: SAVe provides you a vehicle to become a true sustainability leader.

Get educated. Become empowered.

Attend SAVe 2024 with your colleagues and get your organization SAVe Certified through a workshop experience that results in development of an actionable, measurable sustainability plan. Learn how to give your AV gear a second life at the end of its first one. Gain knowledge and resources that will empower you to advocate in your community.

Meet your international allies

While SAVe is the first U.S.-based industry-wide organization of its kind, our mission is global, and so is our membership. At SAVe 2024 you’ll meet, learn from, and share ideas with like-minded change makers from across the planet. The experience will lay the ground for global change. But you, too, will be transformed by this opportunity to join a movement that grows by the day.
