We are excited to tell you about some of the sustainability initiatives we have been working on for the Northwest Event Show. We recognize the importance of being leaders in our industry and stewards of our community, so to that end, we have given significant focus toward ensuring we reduce our environmental footprint for this year’s show.
Exhibitors have the opportunity to sign a sustainability pledge in the exhibitor portal. Exhibitors who sign the pledge will be recognized on the event website as well as on signage at the event.
A few of the things we are working on this year to increase our focus on the topic sustainability:
- Reducing our landfill waste by using compostable & recyclable materials throughout the show.
- We will provide information, education, and solutions that attendees will be able to take away to help make their events more sustainable.
- We will work with the SCC to measure our waste stream to better understand how much waste the show produces, to help us better understand how to make reductions in future years.
We are excited to be on this journey and look forward to sharing what we learn.
For our wonderful catering partners:
Thank you so much for being a partner in this year’s Northwest Event Show. The Northwest Event Show is taking steps to creating a more sustainable and earth friendly show this year. We have partnered with the Seattle Convention Center to provide a more robust waste management solution for this year’s show and will have ample compost and recycling stations throughout. In order to meet our environmental goals we are working to facilitate change in the waste stream created by our conference. A typical conference attendee creates 4.5 LBS of waste per day (meetgreen). We at Butler Seattle would like to change that statistic with your help. We are asking all of our catering exhibitors to consider using service ware items made of compostable materials. Items to consider include drinkware cups, picks, plates, mini-plates, forks, knives, spoons, and napkins. For more information on what is a compostable service ware product, view here. We hope we can count on you to support this important element of our show. Questions?
