The First Environmentally Sustainable Meetings Facility

Colorado Convention Center


The Colorado Convention Center (CCC), home of the SIA Snow Show, is sustainable by design and in December 2012 became the first convention center in the world to meet the APEX/ASTM Environmentally Sustainable Meeting Standards at Level 1.  Most recently, the convention center re-certified at Level 2 by focusing on continually improving upon their efforts.  This standard focuses specifically on the impacts of a meeting or event by going beyond sustainable building practices to also incorporate best practices of community engagement, communication, and staff management.  This certification complements the CCC's certifications to both LEED EB:OM Gold Level and ISO 14001.

The CCC facility also addresses sustainability with:

  • Natural light in several lobbies
  • Single-stream recycling, back of house composting collection, and a robust donation program.
  • Solar panels that offset 280 metric tons of carbon dioxide each year
  • Annual diversion of 250 tons of meetings materials from the landfill
  • More than 50 percent of employees biking or using transit to commute
  • “No idling” rule for shuttles and taxis
  • Centerplate’s Blue Bear Farm with 5,000+ square feet of growing space that will provide the caterer and food service provider  with at least 3,000 pounds of produce annually

"The SIA Snow Show is the best time of the year! You get to see all the new technology coming out, you get to see all the sales reps you have relationships with, and then right around the corner you get to test everything out at the On-Snow Demo at Copper." Katy Graul, Ski Brokers, Fraser, CO
"For me, the Show is so much more than just a product presentation, it's a true breeding ground for ideas and inspiration. The forums, the marketing information, and the opportunities for retailers like me to network with each other has become a major feature for me." Teddy Schiavoni, Summit Ski Shop, Framingham, MA
"It's the place to go to see as many manufacturing companies as you can see under one roof at one time. It’s the latest and greatest of everything that’s going to be coming through the stores in the next six to eight months. I think people do a disservice to themselves by not going." Susan Woody, sales rep, Turtle Fur
"This Show is so important because it's the preview for what’s to come; it's the big picture. You can talk to the people that are in sales, product development, we can tell you plans for next year as well as help retailers with their buy so they become informed and make better decisions for their business." Ryan Green, Nordic Division Manager, Rossignol
"From an international perspective, I can see that the whole US snow sports industry is truly a community. Everybody's here and you can see that it's a family." Sigi Rumphuber, Product Designer/Engineer, G3
"This whole business is based on relationships, so if you don’t get that face to face time it's difficult to continue those relationships or build new ones. And of course we have to be at the Show because it gives a chance for everyone to see the full line, and to talk about any problems or potential opportunities." Josh Roberts, VP, Nitro Snowboards
