Designing a More Sustainable Meeting: ASLA continues to work to reduce the carbon footprint of the annual meeting and EXPO. The hotels, convention center, show decorator, transportation company, and other vendors with whom ASLA contracts services must demonstrate an ongoing commitment to sustainable practices. ASLA’s printed materials, signage, and decorations are recycled and/or recyclable and printed with vegetable ink. The meeting handouts are distributed electronically. Every effort is made to find a use for items donated or left behind by EXPO exhibitors.
