Welcome to TSNN’s Green News E-newsletter!
In honor of Earth Day coming up April 22, TSNN is excited to release our first TSNN Green News e-newsletter that will highlight all the sustainable efforts made by shows and suppliers in the trade show industry.
Before the recession hit, ‘going green’ was a buzz phrase that seemed to be everywhere. Most companies had sustainable practices in place and lots of shows were highlighting all the ways our industry could be saving the planet.
‘Going green’ didn’t go away, it just was put aside for a while as companies looked to save dollars and focus on getting through difficult times.
Meanwhile, shows such as the Greenbuild International Conference & Expo continued to grow and others like Natural Products Expo West offered several ways to make the showfloor itself more sustainable.
Many venues amped up their focus on ‘going green’ and a growing number have obtained different levels of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification that is offered through the US Green Building Council for venues that follow strict environmental standards.
There is no doubt that the trade show industry is a wasteful one. We hope that by highlighting the industry's green efforts and providing ‘how to’ and ‘best practice’ articles on how companies can do their part, we can all help make the planet - and the trade show industry - a better place for everyone!
