This year we are dedicated to reducing our conference’s environmental impact. Here are some of the steps we are taking, and how you can help!
Please bring your reusable water bottles to the conference! We will have water stations available, and the venue has a smart bottle refill fountain. Packaged waters with compostable plant-based containers will be available, and the water station cups are recycled and compostable as well.
Travel mugs welcome! Coffee will be available throughout the conference, in compostable cups or using your own mug.
We will have metal utensils available this year for lunch and breakfast. Please return them to the designated bins when finished. Additional utensils are made of a compostable plant-based bioplastic. The lunch bowls provided by Silantra are recycled and compostable.
Thanks to our Diamond sponsor Elastic for providing canvas tote bags for our swag bags this year! These totes can be used again and again for groceries, shopping, and more.
Don’t Want It? Don’t Toss It!
If there are any conference items that you don’t want to take with you, we will have a bin near the info desk to collect them and find them a new home.
There is a bicycle rack located at the Ware center to the right of the main entrance, to lock up your wheels.
The Lancaster Amtrak station is just a few blocks north, for easy access from New York, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, and more.
The Lancaster Parking Authority has installed free Charge Point stations for electric vehicles in five garages –
