We minimize energy use by reducing the lights, power, and HVAC during move-in and move-out times in exhibit halls. This helps reduce our event's carbon emissions from the venue energy use and helps us create Net Zero Carbon events, utilizing renewable electricity at PSP/Deck Expo 2022 and beyond.
At the request of PSP/Deck Expo, the LVCC will monitor and track the volume of waste and recycling, which is already a part of LVCC's LEED certification. These initiatives have been implemented to focus on the waste diversion rate and divert as much waste from the show from the Las Vegas landfills as possible. The LVCC will have recycling cans for the show floor, lobbies, and outside all meeting rooms. There will also be recycling cans inside meeting rooms and PSP/Deck Expo contracted spaces. PSP/Deck Expo is also requesting a recycling stream of pallets and cardboard, which is part of LVCC's sustainability initiatives.
We train our staff to dispose of recyclable materials and other waste properly.
All leftover food from the event will be composted to help divert as much waste from the show from the Las Vegas landfills as possible. At the LVCC, the in-house catering company composts all kitchen waste, and most of the food-ware is made of biodegradable materials.
The LVCC makes food donations to local partners, coordinated by Centerplate
The LVCC has over 60 water bottle filling stations throughout the convention center.
We use pre-cut to-length tabletop vinyl, reusable drapery, wooden tables, and biodegradable trash can liners. We have also eliminated aisle carpet and no longer required booth carpet. All carpet, padding, and plastic covering used contain recycled content and are recyclable.
