The Globe Foundation of Canada is the winner of the 2007 gold IMEX Green Meetings Award, sponsored by IMEX, the global meeting and travel trade show held annually in Frankfurt, Germany. The foundation planned a Vancouver event on behalf of the UN-Habitat and the Canadian government for the World Urban Forum Conference. The organization was cited for its green procurement and carbon-neutral strategies, waste minimization, pollution reduction, energy conservation and the way it actively engaged suppliers and delegates in their green policies. The silver IMEX Green Meetings Award was presented to Delaware North Companies Parks and Resorts for the 2006 Sierra Business Council Conference held in Yosemite, Calif. Visit London was the winner of this year's IMEX's Green Exhibitor award for constructing its booth with 100 percent recyclable materials, reducing shipping and for providing marketing matter on thumb drives instead of paper.
