If available, please make sure to recycle as much as possible in your hotel room, catered functions, registration and on the exhibit floor. Paperless, paperless, paperless whenever possible. If conference mobile apps are available, utilize as much as you can. Ask the housekeeping department not to change the sheets and towels daily unless requested by you. In addition, ask the hotel not to replace the amenities daily unless they are gone. Before leaving your sleeping room for the day shut blinds and turn down the heat/air conditioning during the day in rooms while attendees are gone. Utilize public or hotel transportation as much as possible….better yet walk if you can. For additional information on how you and/or your meeting can make a difference click here.
