HD Expo + Conference to Feature Many Green Exhibitors, Learning Opportunities


The annual HD Expo + Conference, which I will be attending, will kick off at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas next week. The event will run from April 30 to May 2 and will include many opportunities to learn about sustainable products on the trade show floor with hundreds of exhibitors in attendance—including 145 first-time exhibitors. Conference sessions will touch on topics ranging from equity, inclusion, and diversity to circular design strategies.

Among the first-time exhibitors this year are Light and Green (LED architectural lighting), AGIC Energy (energy management systems), Coulee Coffee Co. (self-adapting automated pour-over coffee maker that uses compostable filters), Dyson (hand dryers and air purifiers), In2green LLC (pillows, bed spreads/comforters/duvets), and Greenmood (green walls and other 100 percent natural indoor acoustic solutions). Many other suppliers offering sustainable products will be in attendance.
