Green Initiatives ‐ The New York Comic Con Show is committed to reduce, reuse, and recycle approach to planning and producing our shows. Recycling waste, trash and other paper products and using recycled products are just a few of the steps we have taken toward “green” tradeshow experience. For example sending out this Service Manual in a web based format conserves over 150,000 pieces of paper previously used for the 3‐ring binder format! Here are a few examples of what you can do to help the environment:  Reduce, Reuse, Recycle  Sign your office up for a recycling program: paper, plastic, cans, etc.  Develop an online ordering system for your buyers.  Reduce marketing on paper by opting for more electronic communication, email attendees after the show.  Design your booth display to last for 5 years or longer using natural fibers.  Practice Green Purchasing where ever possible by specifying Environmentally Preferable Products (EPP). These products or services contain recycled content, minimize waste, conserve energy or water, and reduce the amount of toxics disposed or consumed.  Reduce packing material by utilizing recyclable materials and take advantage of convention center recycling options for packaging.  Donate extra amenities or promotional products to local charities rather than shipping them back or tossing them in the trash.  Reed Exhibitions has implemented the following programs and purchasing habits in an effort to reduce the amount of waste generated and encourage our clients and vendors to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle whenever possible.  We have successfully implemented Express Badge on many shows, allowing attendees to print their badge on demand at show site. This process reduces the printing and mailing of unnecessary badges.  Our offices are set up to recycle paper, plastic, cans.  We design a show look for a minimum of 3 year lifecycle and recycle graphics for the same period.

We have reduced paper communications both internally and externally by opting for electronic communication. Producing an on‐line exhibitor manual reduces our paper consumption by over 150,000 sheets on this show alone. Where ever possible we partner with local charities to provide donation opportunities for our exhibitors as a way to “reuse” leftover products and merchandise, thus saving on packing materials and carbon emissions by not shipping home.


By now you should have arranged for insurance coverage to protect your exhibit and product against damage or loss from the time it leaves your premises until it returns Unpack product as close to the Show opening as possible. At the close of the Show, we suggest that you stay at your booth until these valuables are repacked Treat especially valuable goods such as prototypes as irreplaceable. If they truly are one‐of‐
a‐kind, hire your own security guard. Under no circumstances should such goods ever be left unattended. Plasma Screens & Flat Screens, DVD’s, televisions, laptops, and other electronic devices are particularly vulnerable to theft Remove tapes or discs at night and store them in a safe place. Keep close tabs on personal items (cell phones, purses, laptops, briefcases, etc.) Do not put articles of any value in a container marked “EMPTY STORAGE”, or behind booth Exhibitor personnel must wear official Show Exhibitor badges at all times during move‐in, show days and move‐out. Please do not give Exhibitor Badges to anyone other than your full time employees and remove all badges from the building when you leave on your last day there. Badges left behind are often abused by unauthorized personnel so do not leave them in your booth or discard on the floor At the close of business each day, cover all display tables. This establishes a barrier to curiosity seekers and other would‐be thieves from selecting such items to steal at a later time Immediately report to security, or Show Management, the presence of any unauthorized visitors, or suspicious activity on the show floor. New York Comic Con closes on Sunday, October 12, 2014 at 5:00 PM. Other than aisle carpet personnel, labor will not be admitted to the Show floor until 6:00 PM. Secure all valuables immediately! Pack and label product and remove them, or put them in the Security Command Post for outbound freight, or hire Security until you can secure them properly. It is essential that exhibitor personnel remain in their exhibit areas until their display materials are secured. All small articles which can be easily picked up should be securely packed before you leave your booth after the Show closes at 5:00 PM. Remember, during teardown, stay with your exhibit until your empty cartons are delivered and your goods are packed, sealed and properly labeled. Do not leave material in your booth unlabeled at any time during move‐out because many things could happen: it may be presumed abandoned; mistaken for trash; or one of your neighboring booths might label it in error! At the close of the show, please be sure to secure SHOW INFORMATION A – Z PAGE 27 OF 27 all electronic equipment especially plasma screens, flat screens, laptops, and any electronic equipment. Don’t Leave Your Booth Unattended Until Your Merchandise Is Secure Our objective is to make your show experience as worthwhile and profitable as it can be. Adhering to these simple security recommendations will go a long way to ensure your success!
