A greener SupplyExpo in Anaheim

In 2010, SupplyExpo attendees will see a greater commitment to sustainability. The tradeshow team is greening up the show by going digital for the buyer's guide. In an effort to further conserve resources, there will not be a printed Show Directory/Buyers' Guide in 2010 for Supply Expo or Natural Products Expo West. Instead there will be a Show Directory Map to navigate your way through the halls at the Anaheim convention center.

"SupplyExpo/Natural Products Expo is committed to reducing our impact on the environment by purchasing energy from renewable sources, providing recycling bins, requiring our vendors to take steps towards using exhibiting materials from renewable or recycled materials and more," said Kendal Norris, Senior Operations Manager for SupplyExpo.

"Keeping our carbon footprint top of mind, we have decided to take a bold step forward in 2010 and produce a Show Directory Map instead of a printed Buyers' Guide. This change will save approximately 500 trees and allows us to work with a local printer, reducing our environmental impact further by saving on both fuel, energy and other valuable resources,” Norris said.

Why a Show Directory Map instead of a Buyers' Guide in 2010?" Our commitment to the environment and lessening our impact on the earth and its resources is top of mind in our decision to change from the Printed Buyers' Guide to the much smaller yet still informative Show Directory Map. However, we would never make this change if we did not feel it would also improve your show experience. No longer do you have carry around a clunky Buyers' Guide, instead you'll have a light and handy Show Directory Map to help assist you in finding the most pertinent information on-site,” Norris said.

How will I access the Online Buyers Guide and Show Directory?

  • Attendees can access all exhibiting company descriptions, contact information and product categories as well as a schedule of all events and education online using the Online Buyers' Guide and Show Directory, available online NOW at www.supplyexpo.com
  • The Online Buyers Guide and Show Directory will also be available at computer kiosks throughout the convention center during the trade show
  • You can now use your mobile device on-site to access the guide and all show information and it has never been easier at www.supplyexpo.com/mobile.
  • By moving this information online we will significantly reduce our environmental impact and allow you access to the most up-to-date show information before, during and after the show at www.supplyexpo.com.

We thank you in advance for embracing this change and helping save our planet.
