We strive to send as little material as possible to the landfill.

What you can do:

  • Use only products that are recyclable at the Oregon Convention Center.
  • Minimize packaging.
  • Bring only what is anticipated for attendees.
  • Provide information on a reusable drive or through a QR code.

Smart Exhibit Display Design:

  • Create signs and banners that are reusable or can be recycled.
  • Print handouts on a post-consumer recycled content paper using soy or vegetable based inks.
  • Use energy efficient lighting for displays.
