Reduced Printing and Digital Signage

  • Digital signage  

  • Material we use – honeycomb, vinyl, 3M Clings, and fabric 

Recycling and Composting 

The San Diego Convention Center uses 4-stream waste receptacles divided into paper, recyclables, trash and compost which are available throughout the convention center. This system lets our attendees help with the recycling process.  

The venue also composts onsite! 

Energy and Efficiency  

The San Diego Convention Center is LEED Gold Certified and uses LED lights throughout the whole facility. Some additional efficiencies include low-flow automatic sinks and toilets, drip irrigation for outdoor landscaping and energy-efficient dishwashers. 

Carbon Offsets  

With our partner, we will offset our carbon impact throughout the event.   

Attendees have the opportunity to purchase carbon offsets for the event during the registration process.  

Material and Food  

Together with the convention center, we will ensure that extra food and promotional items do not go to waste by donating to local organizations, for more information, please visit here.

Identified water refill stations throughout the convention center to allow for easy water bottle refill.
