IMEX America 2021

Two sustainability happenings caught my attention recently, so I’ll provide a quick recap. SCS Global Services (SCS) has launched Zero Waste for Events certification, and IMEX America has released its 2021 Sustainable Event Report that recaps measures taken and sustainability successes at the biggest trade show in the United States for the global incentive travel, meetings, and events industry.

The Convention Industry Council’s Accepted Practices Exchange (APEX) and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) have awarded its Level 4 certification—the highest possible accreditation—to the Vancouver Convention Centre. Venues that demonstrate high standards for environmentally sustainable meetings, trade shows and conferences are awarded Level 4 certification. Vancouver Convention Centre’s commitment to environmental sustainability helped it become the first facility in Canada to receive this level of certification.
