Quartet of Trade Shows Begin with Our Industry’s BDNY & HX

Glenn Hasek

In a span of 10 days, four important trade shows will take place around the United States. I will attend the first two: BDNY and HX: The Hotel Experience. BDNY and HX will take place November 10 to 11 at the Javits Center in New York City. Watch for coverage following the trade shows on Green Lodging News. Together, the two shows will feature 950 exhibitors featuring products ranging from amenity dispensers to energy management controls to recycling containers. BDNY and HX evolve every year. I have attended almost every show since 1989 and always look forward to seeing the new products and technologies.

Sunday, November 10 will be a big day for green educational opportunities. Click here to read my recent article about these activities. Topics will range from climate change to eco-friendly design.

If you will be attending HX and BDNY and would like to meet, send me a note or give me a call. I can be reached at greenlodgingnews@gmail.com and (216) 702-0334 while at the show.

The Hub for Green Cleaning Education

The next show to pay attention to is ISSA Show North America. Held November 18 to 21 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, ISSA is the annual show for the professional cleaning industry. Among the hundreds of exhibitors will be ones featuring just about every type of green cleaning product you can imagine, hand dryers, composting containers, water heaters, and much more.

Greenbuild, the world’s largest expo and conference dedicated to green building, will be held in Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center from November 19 to 22. The 2019 Greenbuild Education Program consists of over 200 sessions, tours, workshops, summits and expo hall educational opportunities. Former President Barack Obama will speak at the Wednesday keynote of Greenbuild. Among the hundreds of exhibitors this year: Carpet America Recovery Effort, International WELL Building Institute, and the Construction and Demolition Recycling Assn.

Trade shows and conferences like these are great opportunities to network and learn about new ways to reduce energy and water consumption, reduce waste, improve indoor air quality and ultimately help the environment while improving the guest experience.

Looking for Guest Columnists

Every two weeks Green Lodging News posts a new guest column on its website. (Click here for examples.) The guest column also appears in the weekly e-newsletter. Green Lodging News is currently in need of industry experts to contribute occasional guest columns. Experts may include consultants, architects, designers, suppliers and those who own or operate green lodging establishments. Columns may be articles that take a stance on a particular subject or be strictly educational in nature. Columnists benefit by having their photo included along with a one paragraph description of their company. Interested in writing a column? Contact Glenn Hasek, publisher and editor, at (813) 510-3868, or by e-mail at editor@greenlodgingnews.com.

Get in the Green Suppliers Spotlight!

Green Lodging News, lodging’s leading environmental news source, announces the launch of Green Suppliers Spotlight, an e-blast to 21,401 subscribers that features the lodging industry’s leading green products and services. The e-blast features multiple vendors—unlike the current Green Supplier Spotlight that allows one supplier to “own” the Green Lodging News subscriber list for one e-blast. (Click here for a Green Suppliers Spotlight sample.)

Green Suppliers Spotlight is published weekly on Thursdays to general managers, owners, management companies, directors of sustainability, directors of engineering, facilities managers and many others who are either in purchasing positions or who influence purchasing decisions. Suppliers of green products and services throughout North America and beyond are invited to participate in the e-blast. (Minimum two suppliers per e-blast.) Green Suppliers Spotlight was created to give vendors an opportunity to reach a high number of industry purchasers at a very low cost—as low as $200 per e-mail. (Click here for rate sheet.)

Those advertising in Green Suppliers Spotlight can include up to 100 words, one image, contact information and multiple links to their website in their ad. At the end of each month, a report will be sent to each supplier with information on delivered e-mails, opens and click-throughs.
