IMEX 2009 is the first meetings-industry trade show to offer green energy, in the form of hydroelectric power, to exhibitors at the event now underway in Frankfurt, Germany.

Another first is the introduction of badge lanyards made entirely from plant silk, a completely organic product comprised of waste grain fibres.

For hosted buyers, recycled and recyclable luggage tags coated in cornstarch laminate were also introduced.

Other green practices for 2009 include biodiesel courtesy buses, locally sourced food and catering, recycling bins placed throughout the hall and bags and printed products made of sustainably sourced and recycled materials.
