In an effort to be more environmentally friendly, producers of the International Marina and Boatyard Conference will use USB ports for all seminar handouts at its Jan. 25-28 conference in Fort Lauderdale.

The USB port can plug into laptop computers and a central computer station located in the convention center. USB ports will be loaded with all seminar presentations and handouts and 2010 conference information. A print station will be made available for those who want hard copies of the handouts.

IMBC’s new exhibition management, Champion Exposition Services, will also contribute to the conference’s green initiatives by using recyclable materials for signs, carpet containing recycled materials, and organic carpet-cleaning products. The management company also will provide exhibitor manuals on CD and online.

The Fort Lauderdale Convention Center management has also taken some environmentally friendly measures. These include the installation of energy efficient light bulbs and motion-sensor lighting, using energy saving coefficient glass that reduces the energy needed to light and heat the building, installing water-saving systems, and developing recycling programs.
