IMEX America 2019: Insights on Sustainability, Accessibility, Technology at Meetings. LAS VEGAS—The ninth edition of the IMEX America meeting industry trade show took place September 10 to 12 at the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Despite the show taking place a full month earlier than its usual October date, IMEX Group chairman Ray Bloom estimated that the convention drew almost 14,000 meeting professionals from 150 countries around the world, while MPI’s Smart Monday day of professional development drew about 900 people. Perhaps the biggest news of the week was the debut of the Events Industry Council’s new EIC Centre for Sustainable Events, a digital platform that will provide education, research, and resources on both eco-friendly practices as well as issues of social justice and community impact. “[Producing] sustainable events is the only way to ensure that your business will continue to exist,” explained Miguel Naranjo, program officer for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, who is involved in the center. 1. 2.

IMEX America 2019: Insights on Sustainability, Accessibility, Technology at Meetings. GAME EVERY(WEAR) DELUXE GAMING. PULL THE (UN)PLUG. ZERO WASTE DINING SPACE. Helsinki’s Restaurant Nolla is so committed to zero waste that it doesn’t even have a trash can.
To achieve this level of sustainability, Nolla’s owners worked with local suppliers to find eco-friendly alternatives to single-use packaging. For farm suppliers, produce is delivered using reusable wood crates, while in the case of other suppliers, Nolla purchased containers that could be repeatedly used. For example, Nolla owners asked their local coffee supplier to use a hard plastic container instead of normal vacuum-sealed plastic plastic bags. In addition to how they source their ingredients, Nolla serves a seasonal set menu, which allows the restaurant to utilize what’s local and available and order just the right amount of food, allowing Nolla to avoid surplus ingredients.

Tom Ford Takes Over an Abandoned Subway Platform for Spring 2020. When Tom Ford was named chairman of the CFDA this past spring, there were some whispers as to how committed he would be to New York City; the Texan-born designer keeps residences in Los Angeles and London, only adding a Big Apple home into the fold around the time of his appointment in early 2019.
It seems hard to believe, as established as he is, but perhaps the premier American luxury designer felt he had to prove he belonged in the NYC grit and grime. Well, take it from me, a Metrocard-carrying New York transplant: When it comes to New York City, it doesn't get any grittier than the subway. Maybe that's why Ford decided to host his Spring 2020 fashion show on an abandoned train platform at the Bowery stop.
