Designing a More Sustainable Meeting

ASLA continues to reduce the carbon footprint of the annual meeting and 2008 will be the greenest meeting yet. The official meeting hotels and the Pennsylvania Convention Center are located within walking distance of each other, eliminating the need for shuttle buses. The hotels, convention center, show decorator, transportation company, and other vendors with whom ASLA contracts services must demonstrate a commitment to sustainable practices. ASLA’s printed materials, signage, and decorations are recycled, recyclable, and printed with soy ink. The meeting handouts will be distributed electronically. Meeting attendees may do their part by traveling to the meeting via Amtrak, purchasing a TerraPass, or arranging air travel through GoodShop (see Travel and Hotel Information).
