Sustainability Initiatives

Badges are Going Digital

No more standing in line on opening morning at Registration! Digital badging helps create a seamless, efficient and modern experience, much like digital boarding passes have created for travelers. 

Prior to the show, you will receive your digital badge via email. Your digital badge can be accessed on your smartphone or smartwatch. You will need to add your badge to your Apple or Google wallet for easy access.

If you do not have a smartphone or have issues accessing your digital badge, visit our on-site customer service to print a registration ticket.

Carpet in the Expo Hall

An analysis from our sustainability team showed that carpet is one of the most significant contributors to waste at our events. The simple act of removing carpet would save hundreds of thousands of pounds of waste each year. In addition to its effect on the environment, carpet is very difficult to clean thoroughly, and removing it will allow us to ensure consistently clean surfaces throughout our events.

How does this change impact our event?  You will not see carpet in the expo hall aisles and show floor feature areas. Exhibitors will still have the option to place flooring in their booth, but it will no longer be a requirement.

Show Guide & Floor Plan are Digital 

To help reduce the amount of paper consumption, printing waste, and paper waste, we have decided not to print a show guide or floor plan for the 2021 event. According to the EPA, over 67 million tons of paper and paperboard was generated in the US in 2018, with over 17 million tons ending up in the landfill.

By moving our show guide and floor plan to a digital format, we are helping to impact the environment in a positive way. Attendees and exhibitors can access the Digital Show Guide on our website and via the IRE mobile app.
