We’re committed to reducing the environmental impact of the conference. We are incorporating a holistic approach that includes but is not restricted to, areas such as reducing written materials and reducing the use of plastics and nonbiodegradable materials.
At the meeting, we will utilise digital signage where possible. If printed signage is required, we ensure it is printed on material that is or can be recycled.  

The conference name tags, bamboo lanyards including the metal fasteners, will be recycled.

We will work with the healthcare industry exhibitors and sponsors to reduce their environmental impact – including eliminating single use flyers, brochures and signage and recycling all packaging where possible and consider what they as a company are bringing into the venue. We also request they take all items and material back to their office.
