Local Marketing Expo has chosen Virginia Beach Convention Center, a “Virginia Green” certified & Energy Star Partner, as its venue. Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of the Virginia tourism and hospitality industry. The Virginia Beach Convention Center, which is anticipated to be LEED certified in the near future, recycles, composts and donates food, incorporates its own vegetables, locally grown and organic food into its menus.
In an effort to make LMX green, we are using eco-friendly signage, reusable name tags and water stations. We are encouraging attendees to carpool and to use the recycle containers while at the conference. Exhibitors will be asked to bring realistic amounts of promotional materials and to recycle unused portions rather than dispose of them. Lastly, our speakers will be asked if they would go “paperless” so we can post notes on the LMX website after the conference.
Local Marketing Expo is committed to become as environmentally-friendly as possible. Being a sustainable conference can make a difference in our local community.
