Travel can greatly impact the greenness of your tradeshow and is oftentimes overlooked since the actual event tends to garner the most attention and focus in terms of being green, but it doesn’t need to be this way. Here are three ways you can up the green factor regarding your tradeshow travel.
1. Consider Alternative Modes of Transportation. Sometimes air travel is the best option, and if you have to fly book direct flights whenever possible to minimize carbon emissions, but depending on your departure and arrival cities consider other travel options. If your tradeshow is within driving distance consider renting a car or hiring a car service to get staff to the event. You can further increase the greenness by traveling in fuel efficient or alternative fuel vehicles. Trains are another good option and feature a lot of perks like business class cars, free Wi-Fi, outlets to keep your electronics charged and the ability to get up and walk around pretty much whenever you want, and all of this comes in at a much lower price point and with far fewer carbon emissions than air travel.
