The Green Exhibitor Guidelines Program (GMEGG) is another facet of Greenbuild that is unique from other shows your company may be exhibiting in.
The idea is to evaluate how you - as an exhibitor - are impacting the environment through your exhibiting practices through a short 22-question survey. We'll ask you about things like lighting, collateral material in your booth, how you're shipping your booth and transportation while your staff is on-site in Chicago with the goal of helping you ascertain small changes you can make to reduce your impact on the environment both at Greenbuild and ideally - at all other shows you're exhibiting in.
Exhibitors play a HUGE role in the sustainability initiatives behind Greenbuild and you guys not only help Greenbuild stay green, but you help us walk the walk and not just talk the talk. Exhibitors also have a huge impact on the success of our sustainability efforts on-site. With each exhibiting company committing to sustainable exhibiting practices and making small changes to the way they exhibit, it adds up to a massive effort (see the results in the 2018 Sustainability Report).
We do ask that each and every exhibitor complete the Green Exhibitor Guidelines survey before you arrive on-site. We'll help you remember throughout the summer and leading up to the show and we'll even have someone call you and you can complete it over the phone. Seriously.
Our goal is 100% participation for Greenbuild 2019. Join in and let's make this year's event the most sustainable yet!
Each exhibitor will complete the Green Exhibitor Guidelines (GMEGG) prior to the show.
The guidelines are divided into 6 sections and will take you no longer than 15 minutes to complete:
There are multiple questions in each section, and each section is worth a certain number of points, depending on its environmental impact. Upon submitting your information, you will receive confirmation and your Green Exhibitor Score.
Your score is the total number of points your company earned in the Green Exhibitor Guidelines survey, based on the answers you selected. Each question in the survey has points associated with it. The higher the environmental impact, the more points and the higher your overall score. Companies who score a 75+ on the survey will be highlighted on the website. Good luck!!
Because sustainability is the heart and soul of Greenbuild and your answers to the guidelines program are critical, we do respectfully ask each exhibitor to complete the program before you arrive on-site. If we do not have your company's information by the time you arrive, you may be unable to set up your booth, receive your orders from Freeman and/or print your badges at registration.
We'll make every effort to reach you and assist you in completing the program prior to the show to ensure you have a great exhibiting experience at Greenbuild.
Absolutely. For all you overachievers out there, you'll want to pay special attention to section 6 of the Green Guidelines program - your sustainability story. This is an optional section where you'll have the opportunity to tell us what you're doing over and above our guidelines, as well as any cool sustainability stories related to your booth.
Entries are evaluated and winners are recognized on-site at Greenbuild with a special ceremony, plaque and the overall winner will receive a FREE 10x10 booth for next year's show!
