In keeping with the sustainable mission of the Green Sports Alliance Summit, we ask that you follow the guidelines below to help us lower the impact of the Summit.


  • Limit brochures and paper handouts. Most attendees will review materials at your booth and leave them for the next person.
  • Use non-dated event neutral designs so leftover items may be used at future events
  • Print signage and handouts through FSC-certified printers and/or paper made of post-consumer content
  • Use non-chlorine inks such as vegetable or soy
  • Print and or purchase what you can in the host city to reduce shipping. When shipping, only send what you need and avoid using packing peanuts (polystyrene) or other difficult to recycle toxic materials
  • In lieu of printed materials, offer to send information via email or display electronically at your booth
  • If you wish to hand out swag to attendees please choose utilitarian items that are sustainably made and recyclable.
  • Use sustainable and/or recycled materials in your exhibit booth

During the Summit

  • During set-up, save packing materials from shipments to reuse at the end of the Summit
  • Remember to power off and unplug any electronic items at your booth when not in use to save energy


  • During break-down, use waste stations to properly recycle any items that cannot be reused
  • Pack up your reusable materials and take them with you to use at future events
  • We will have a donation box to collect useful items you do not wish to ship back such as water bottles, canvas bags, pens or similar handouts. Note: All paper handouts should be recycled
  • Please contact us directly if you would like additional resources or guidance in greening your exhibitor space.



As an exhibitor/sponsor, complimentary passes to attend and exhibit are included in your sponsorship terms. You should have received instructions on how to register via email. Your Registration Includes access to all programming content during the 2017 Green Sports Alliance Summit.

Please contact Hannah Walker at hannah@greensportssummit.org for any questions regarding exhibitor passes.



Please look for the TerraCycle boxes, which will allow you to recycle previously unrecyclable shipping materials. Please place all your discarded single-use Styrofoam/paper/plastic cups (including coffee cups), plates, storage containers, straws and utensils.
