GDI Services (Canada) LP to Return as Presenting Sponsor of Green Program
(Calgary, AB – June 21, 2016)GlobalFest is excited to announce that GDI will be returning as the Green Program’s Presenting Sponsor for the ninth year in a row.
The General Manager for Calgary’s branch, Peter Pawluk, says GlobalFest and GDI share a lot of the same values, which made this local sponsorship a perfect fit.
“GDI strongly supports multiculturalism and diversity – which is a key aspect at the heart of this festival – plus the Green Program aligns with our commitment to sustainability and being eco-friendly. Our company operates green cleaning programs that use environmentally friendly products and equipment in all of our locations, so it only made sense that we help the efforts to keep Elliston Park clean for this event.”
GDI provides a wide variety of cleaning, event support, technical trade and energy management services to more than 2000 industrial, institutional and educational facilities across North America. Utilizing their national presence, they provide clients with operational efficiencies, purchasing power and cost savings while still prioritizing the delivery of superior local service in each location.
Through the sponsorship of community-oriented organizations focused on celebrating the vibrant multicultural communities within Calgary, GlobalFest is able to continue to produce a world-class arts and cultural festival that celebrates a world of difference. GlobalFest believes in the importance of protecting and preserving our environment; our city parks are essential in creating and sustaining vibrant, healthy and safe communities. Keeping Elliston Park clean and beautiful is one of GlobalFest’s top Priorities, along with keeping our footprint on the environment as minimal as possible.
GlobalFest would like to thank GDI Services for their generous commitment to the Festival. GlobalFest is proud to run an eco-friendly festival, and with the support of GDI Services, GlobalFest can continue to produce Alberta’s Most Explosive Festival!
