Sustainable Event Planning

Our conference team promotes and practices sustainability for events we coordinate. Following is a partial list of our sustainable practices:

  • participate in the K-State Recycling Program for events held on campus
  • recycle plastic name badges
  • reuse laminated meal tickets
  • reuse event signage
  • print event materials, including marketing pieces, on recycled paper
  • use soy ink for printing whenever possible
  • encourage electronic marketing and online registration
  • make meeting handouts available on event websites or distribute to attendees on flash drives or CDs
  • use QR codes for meeting agendas and handouts
  • purchase products in bulk to avoid excessive packaging
  • work with hotels and meeting venues that practice green initiatives
  • serve locally produced foods at catering events
  • conserve energy by turning off lights and shutting down audiovisual equipment in vacant meeting rooms
