From pre-event activities and promotion, to encouraging exhibitors to make changes to post-event clean up and waste removal, we will be mindful and intentional in the amount of waste generated.

Low-waste efforts include:

  • Eliminating the promotional postcard. We have increased social media promotion in place of the postcard.
  • Encouraging exhibitors to print double-sided if they will be utilizing handouts.
  • Encouraging exhibitors to use recyclable materials for their displays and activities.
  • Creating signage on recycled pallets to communicate the event agenda, directional signage and sponsor information.
