(If you need a new one, head to Registration when you arrive.) before you go Show floor Support our sustainability Reducing the environmental impact of our show begins with you. We can make giant leaps through the collective power of our small individual choices. Our sustainability consultants MeetGreen, are asking everyone attending: To bring along a reusable water bottle — if we all do this, we could save enough energy to power an average U.S. household for 2,507 hours (or for three months 24 hours a day) To pack one less pair of shoes — if we all do this, the reduction in carbon emissions is equivalent to taking a car off the road for 74,735 miles (equal to driving between New York and Las Vegas 29 times) To choose chicken over beef — if we all do this, we would save enough water to fill over 42,000 bathtubs (that’s enough baths for everyone at IMEX America for the next three shows!)
