A More Sustainable Conference
Each year, we have been making the conference more environmentally and culturally sustainable.

Steps taken include adding more sustainable travel sessions, to migrating to Tier 2 cities (where local communities directly benefit), to using stations with mugs and glass, to reducing paper consumption.
This year, we are pleased to provide options for offsetting the carbon generated by your conference attendance.    Offsetting your carbon footprint
