Green Efforts

IAAPA is committed to minimizing the environmental impact of IAAPA Attractions Expo 2013 by reducing the amount of waste produced by the event; disposing of waste in an environmentally responsible manner; reducing energy and water consumption; and educating exhibitors and attendees about environmentally responsible practices. Some of the steps IAAPA takes include:

  • going paperless with education sessions (session material will be available after the show online at www.IAAPA.org)
  • sending bound exhibitor services guides only to those who request them (green options are available, including an online exhibitor services guide)
  • using recycled/organic/biodegradable products for marketing materials
  • reusing badge holders
  • reducing paper consumption at Registration, the Press Office, and other locations
  • promoting recycling throughout the show
  • promoting use of online resources for the show, including a mobile app that guests may use in place of the printed show program and map

Additionally, the OCCC and show vendors Centerplate and Freeman are also committed to this cause. They will do the following:

  • use eco-friendly cleaning products
  • use recycled paper products throughout the center
  • use propane or battery power vehicles
  • use eco-friendly plates, bowls, and cups during food service
  • donate leftover food to local shelters
  • use trans-fat-free frying oil
  • use carpet, tabletop products, and other supplies that contain recycled materials
