In 1998, I walked into the Vancouver Convention Centre on a site inspection for a technology conference. My first request was for a copy of their environmental policies. Without missing a beat, the Convention Centre representative pulled a sheet of paper out of his packet and reviewed them with me. It was the first time ANYONE had been able to respond to my request without returning to their office and sending the policies at a much later date.

They will always have a special place in my little green heart, so when I learned they had taken the IMEX/GMIC 2011 Green Supplier Silver Award, I was thrilled. Environmental sustainability is how they do business–every day for every client for years.

Congratulations to the entire team at the Vancouver Convention Centre! The recognition is well deserved.
