Taking big steps towards sustainability

Taking big steps towards sustainability

Ready, set, #IMEXrun! More than 700 registered runners put their best foot forward early this morning at the #IMEXrun – the popular 5k run along the Las Vegas Strip which has been fully booked every year since its launch. This year’s team sponsors are: Hilton, LVCVA, Simpleview, Switzerland Convention & Incentive Bureau and GES.

The early morning fun run is one of many health and wellbeing initiatives at the show including guided meditation sessions led by mindfulness expert Lee Papa and the new Caesars Forum Walking Challenge by Heka Health, which encourages attendees to get ever so slightly competitive(!) and win prizes as they clock up the miles in and around the show.

Sustainability and Giving Back is also a cornerstone of IMEX America with planners and exhibitors at the show invited to build a hygiene kit for Clean the World, donate a book to Spread the Word, and bring their reusable travel cup as part of the #greencaffeine campaign.

IMEX is also putting its full force behind reducing single use plastic (including vinyl signage), asking people to carry a refillable water bottle and make use of the many free water refill stations at the show.

IMEX America 2018 is currently taking place October 16 – 18 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center.
