Greening the exhibit hall: Practicing what we preach

As a Greenbuild attendee, you are part of the community that is transforming the way we think about conferences, events and meetings. Every year, we raise the bar on our greening standards for Greenbuild, holding ourselves, our exhibitors, attendees and other stakeholders to ever-increasing standards of excellence in the way we conduct business together.

At Greenbuild, all exhibitors are required to adhere to the Greenbuild Mandatory Exhibition Green Guidelines. These guidelines focus on sustainable booth construction, reuse, material selection and operations. The guidelines give a menu of sustainable options for exhibitors to choose from in order to come into compliance, and require the tracking of materials used in all booths. For exhibitors that go above and beyond, USGBC gives out Green Exhibitor Awards at three different levels: Leadership, Advocate, and Partner. In 2009, there was a 67% increase in applicants for the Award, and we are expecting even greater interest in the Award in 2010.
