We work with fantastic clients around the world. Here's what some of them have to say:
"VISIT DENVER has worked with Lindsay in her role as the Sustainable Programs Manager at the Colorado Convention Center and as a contractor to assist our offices with our sustainably practices. She is a leader in her field and her knowledge of sustainability and how it relates to tourism and hospitality is what sets her apart from her competition."
- Rachel Benedick, Vice President, Sales and Services at VISIT DENVER
We are pleased to have Lindsay with Honeycomb Strategies on staff working with us in determining sustainable and realistic facility operation goals that support the green meetings industry. Lindsay has helped us define what sustainability means from a granular approach beginning with the customers first.
She not only has been able to get our sustainability program up and running but she is consistently encouraging each member of our staff to individually do their part in terms of energy savings, reduced water consumption and waste reduction and diversion.
Lindsay possesses a keen awareness of both the convention center and customer goals. She has been instrumental in assisting us achieve and maintain our LEED Gold Certification - Existing Building Operations and Maintenance, our Green Meeting Industry Council Certification and the ASTM Environmentally Sustainable Meetings, Events, Trade Shows, and Conferences credentials.
Lindsay is a caring and committed champion of the environment. She has taught us to enthusiastically listen to our customers; assess the needs of each event and to use our best practices to honor our commitment to the customer quest for a green meeting.
Honeycomb Strategies are experts in the Green Meetings industry and I would not hesitate to recommend Lindsay and her staff to anyone who may be considering adopting a greener path to follow.

“Lindsay’s wealth of knowledge has been a huge asset for me while transitioning into my current role as sustainability coordinator at the Vancouver Convention Centre. She is kind, smart and a real pleasure to do business with.”
- Mandy Gale Sustainability Coordinator, Vancouver Convention Center
I would like to pass on my sincere thanks and appreciation to Lindsay Arell for all the hard work and expert advice she provided in helping secure ASTM Level 4 Venue Certification for the Vancouver Convention Centre. Her broad knowledge of the event industry and all things sustainable enabled us to navigate the certification process as smoothly as possible. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
- Tony Munster, Senior Manager, Facilities Operations and Engineering, Vancouver Convention Center
“It is a rarity that you work with people who are versatile enough to go from strategy to detail while engaging stakeholders to drive to the highest possible results. Honeycomb possesses the talent and skills to move an organization or event further along its sustainability journey.
Amanda is able to remain calm and curious in stakeholder engagement. She has the ease of being able to translate technical jargon into bit sized human scale chunks—all with a mindful eye to deadlines, budget and results. When I had the opportunity to hire a consultant in my work at Travel Portland, to assist us in our early stages of sustainable destination assessment, It was because of Amanda’s awareness of the industry (and the industry’s challenges) as well as her skills in stakeholder engagement, sustainable event management and professionalism that we hired the firm for the project."
- Tamara Kennedy Hill, Vice President of Diversity and Community Relations, Visit Portland
"Amanda’s dedication to building long-term relationships in the industry and depth of knowledge about sustainability and waste management make her indispensable in our efforts to reduce the impacts of WINDPOWER. She cares about the success of the overall event and approaches problems from a team perspective. That said, she can be tough as nails and negotiated thousands in savings for us this year alone. I love working with Honeycomb Strategies and consider Amanda to be one of the best."
- Elesha Peterson Carr, Senior Director, Conference Planning & Event Logistics, American Wind Energy Association
"Partnering with Lindsay Arell, Principal of Honeycomb Strategies, has not only one of the most fruitful sustainability relationships we’ve entered into, it has also been fun on a personal level to work with Lindsay on multiple projects for the past two years. Lindsay is not your typical consultant, she cares on a personal level which makes all the difference and fits perfectly within our green strategy. Working with a professional sports team on sustainability can pose a challenge, after all, we’re focused on our main goal of winning championships on the field. Lindsay is excellent at navigating the distractions, fast paced environment and main goals of our team and communicating the right things at the right times with various internal parties. She has a natural talent for aligning sustainability with business goals, this is an essential attribute to having key internal conversations with decision makers. We have become the first professional sports team to obtain ISO20121 sustainability certification under Lindsay’s guidance, this is where she should drop the mic!"
- Norman Vossschulte, Director of Fan Experience, Philadelphia Eagles
"We love working with Amanda and Honeycomb Strategies! Amanda’s expertise and enthusiasm of sustainable event management practices consistently motivates our internal team and stakeholder groups to do all they can to make Greenbuild the most sustainable show in the event industry. She beautifully manages relationships and helps so many of our vendors navigate changes to their standard operating practices, making them more sustainable for show and beyond. And if that wasn’t enough, she does great work in consistently and accurately managing event data and analysis, helping us identify where we are making progress and achieving our goals."
-Lindsay Roberts, Group Director, Greenbuild Conference and Expo
"The current success that United National enjoys in the trade show sustainability arena can be largely attributed to our work with Honeycomb Strategies. Working on events such as Greenbuild Conference and Expo, Natural Products Expo East and West, where they successfully implemented sustainable waste management practices and guidelines for our company to follow. Honeycomb ensures our personnel receive consistent training and on-field-supervision that is engaging and empowering to our staff."
- Raymond Santos, Senior VP National Operations, United Service Companies
