Sustainability Checklist

Sustainability Checklist

Consider the environmental, human and economic pillars of sustainability by incorporating one or several of the elements below while planning your meeting:


Community Impact

Get in touch with your designated convention services manager to discuss the opportunities for creating a legacy initiative within the Connected Community program. We will connect you with local organizations and stakeholders who share your ideals so you can create a unique program that supports your mission. Start planning your legacy initiative at least two years before your meeting for the best results and biggest impact.

Don’t have two years to plan a legacy initiative? Leave a positive impact through a Corporate Social Responsibility project.
