Attendee Sustainability Guide

Attendee Sustainability Tips

While you are attending Expo East, there are several ways you can reduce your carbon footprint:

Water Conservation

  • Participate in your hotel’s Linen ReUse Program- Did you know that you can often earn Rewards points for participating? Ask your hotel about their specific awards incentives!
  • Take shorter showers to save water and time!

Waste Reduction

  • Use a refillable water bottle and coffee cup throughout the conference
  • Take only what you need at food functions
  • Know where to throw and make sure that items make it into the correct waste bin
  • Return your lanyard at show close to be re-used at Expo West
  • Make sure to download the official mobile app (available soon!) instead of using a paper show map onsite
  • Ask for a recycling bag for your hotel room if one isn’t in place

Energy Conservation

  • Turn off lights and thermostat when leaving your hotel room
  • If exhibiting, be sure to power down your booth at the end of each show day

Air Quality/ CO2 Impact

  • Carpool or take public transport to/from the airport and to/from your hotel. Make new friends and contacts while saving CO2!
  • Take advantage of the free hotel shuttle (if available)… or even better, walk if possible!
  • Offset your travel to/from Expo East through our registration site
  • Eat vegetarian or vegan at least one meal per day
  • Participate in the Travel Green, Save Green Program
