Sustainability Tips

While you are attending CBD Expo, there are several ways to be environmentally conscious :

Water Conservation/Waste Reduction:

  • Take shorter showers to save water and time!
  • Use a refillable water bottle and coffee cup throughout the conference
  • Ask for a recycling bag when needed

Energy Conservation:

  • Power down your booth at the end of show day
  • Make sure the lights/thermostat are turned off in the rooms when not in use

CO2 Impact:

  • Carpool or take public transport to/from the airport and to/from your hotel.
  • Take advantage of the free hotel shuttle (if available)
  • If possible, walking to/from the venue!

Exhibitor Sustainability Tips

Reduce signage waste:

  • Encourage less printing and provide more information digitally when it comes to booth literature, fulfilling requests via email and website referrals.
  • If you do print, create reusable non-dated signs that can be used year after year.
  • Avoid foam board signs and request recyclable material such as cardboard signage.


Reduce booth waste:

  • You can request sustainable options from GES
  • Break down ALL cardboard boxes and put it in the correct recycling bin.
  • Request additional bins for recycling and compost collection
  • Try to use only compostable or recyclable service ware for samples and giveaways.
  • Set a goal to leave no trace behind by shipping out all booth properties and packing materials and donating extra giveaways.
