SYDNEY CONVENTION AND EXHIBITION CENTRE OFFERS ORGANISERS GREENER OPTIONS BY SWITCHING OFF POWER
posted on: 12/4/2012 10:10:36
SCEC RESIZED

AUSTRALASIA - The Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre (SCEC) is offering exhibition organisers the option of ‘switching off’ in an attempt to boost their green credentials.
 
The venue has installed dedicated electricity outlets for cleaning in its main exhibition halls, enabling exhibition organisers to switch off all other power overnight to reduce energy consumption and exhibitor costs.
 
The new system was trialled at Reed’s Gift Fair, one of the largest exhibitions in Australia, and according to an SCEC spokesman played a major role in reducing power consumption at the event by 12 per cent.
 
Chief executive of the SCEC Ton van Amerongen said the new power reduction option would now be offered to all exhibition organisers.
 
“This latest initiative is part of our ongoing drive to reduce our carbon footprint and set the benchmark for the events industry,” he said.
 
The SCEC has won the Best Green Initiative category at the national Exhibition and Events Association of Australasia’s (EEAA) Annual Awards for the past four years, and has been accredited with the ISO 14001:2004 Standard for Environmental Management Systems.
 
The SCEC recently claimed to be the first Australian exhibition venue to launch a virtual event offering for delegates who cannot attend a conference or exhibition in person.
