SPC Impact by the numbers


A green event!

Sustainability is not only our area of expertise, it’s our passion. That is why we plan all of our conferences to be as environmentally-friendly as possible. This year we will have recycling and composting bins readily available throughout the venue, leftover food from meals will be composted back of house, signage will be printed using soy-based ink and on SFI-certified paper, and we will walk to many events throughout the conference, among many other small acts of sustainability.
