OUR PLEDGE—MINIMAL WASTE EXHIBITS

FUNCTIONAL FABRIC FAIR—Powered by PERFORMANCE DAYS®—makes sustainability a priority at our events. We put forth our best effort to adapt green meeting practices by partnering with meeting centers who are dedicated to minimizing waste and boosting efficiencies.

With annual Focus Topics weaved seamlessly into our program, our goal is to leave each of our customers with a lasting impression while improving the quality of life for our partnering communities and ecosystem.

FOCUS TOPIC

Of all the water that exists on our planet, roughly 97% is saltwater and less than 3% is freshwater. Most of Earth’s freshwater is frozen in glaciers, ice caps, or is deep underground in aquifers. Less than 1% of Earth’s water is freshwater that is easily accessible to us to meet our needs, and most of that water is replenished by precipitation—a vital component of the water cycle, affecting every living thing on Earth. Source

In an exponentially growing world, developmentally stable economies and its business leaders are faced with the difficult task of determining how to view our consumption of life’s most precious resource: what happens when the limits of its usage are reached?...
