Green Policy


The Convention Center performs multiple sustainable practices to be energy efficient and stay environmentally friendly. We were the first Center in the nation to incorporate the sophisticated “day lighting” technology in the exhibit halls, which allows natural sunlight to filter in through 30-foot ceiling openings and complement the buildings artificial light.

We have raised the bar in the meetings industry and “green” meetings are the standard for all events held here at the Convention Center. Practices include:

  • Water: Water will be served in pitchers.
  • Food Service: Washable, reusable cups, “glasses” dishes are used, when possible.
  • Writing Materials: Pens and pads will not be placed unless ordered by the client.
  • White Boards: White boards and markers will be used instead of flip charts.
  • Communications: All communication with potential guests is electronic, other than what is legally or brand-standard required to be maintained in “hard copy” form.
  • Environmental Controls: Temperature in the meeting room is individually controlled and is maintained between 68 and 72 degrees (winter/summer).
  • Table Cloths: If cloth table cloths are used, they will be washed during the event only if visibly soiled.
  • Leftover Food: All remaining food items will be donated.
