As a “passive” environmentalist, I get seriously annoyed when an event organizer requires me to bring a printed version of my e-ticket.
That’s a lazy, uncreative, and wasteful form of confirmation.
Instead of creating a master list of participants to serve a checklist, the burden is passed on to the attendee.
If 500 attendees print out their e-tickets, that’s a ream of paper that will contribute to the garbage problem.
If you organize events or workshops, I hope you’re not the person I’m describing in this article. But if you are, please consider some alternative forms of paperless registration.
