Sustainability at the Symposium!

 Posted on: March 12 2024
As the inaugural Sustainability Sponsor for the Sports ETA Symposium, the Eugene, Cascades & Coast Sports Commission is thrilled to extend a warm welcome to Oregon. In anticipation of your visit, they’d like to offer some useful tips to help make your time more enjoyable while also helping to preserve their great state. Firstly, remember to pack your reusable water bottle and coffee cup. Refilling your bottle with the purest, freshest water or indulging in the renowned Northwest coffee is not only convenient but also contributes to reducing waste from plastic water bottles and single-use coffee cups. As a token of their appreciation, you’re invited to visit their booth on the trade show floor, #219.

Additionally, they’ll have some stylish local stickers available to brighten up your bottle. Thank you for joining us and...
