Hosting a More Sustainable Event
Synapse is proud to continue to host events that prioritize sustainability wherever possible.
We’ll use digital signage wherever possible, provide reusable water bottles, recycle name tags and lanyards, use recyclable polypropylene items for food and beverage services as well as print signage, offer a digital swag bag to encourage exhibitors and sponsors to forego physical promotional items, and more. Even our Synapse swag is printed on demand, reducing waste and cost. Whenever possible, Synapse is committed to working with local vendors who share our commitment to inclusive, equitable and sustainable practices. If you have a vendor you’d like to recommend who can support these efforts please let us know at email@example.com.
Our sustainability practices have been designed with generous guidance and sponsorship from PureCycle Technologies, an Orlando-based innovative maker of recycled polypropylene, and implemented through the support of Green Works Orlando, a project by the City of Orlando, and the team at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

What details should I know as an exhibitor?
All power requests must be pre-ordered. Power can not be added to your exhibition space on site.
Exhibition will be open on Friday, October 15th from 9-4pm.
Please plan to load in on Friday, October 15th between 6am and 8am. You MUST have an assigned time and location. If you do not, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Load out must be on Friday, October 15th between 4-7pm.
Please arrive at your assigned time and drop off location due to limited space.
For REAR drop off on S. Rosalind Ave: Pull into the loading dock bays to unload equipment only. There is no ramp on the dock, so please plan accordingly to lift items onto the dock or bring a box truck. Once the equipment is off the truck, the truck will need to move to allow for the next vendor to load-in.
For FRONT drop off on S. Magnolia Ave: This location is at ground level. Vehicles can temporarily stop to unload and then must be parked offsite. This is to prevent “traffic jams” at the entrance and enable other exhibitors to unload.
Please reach out with additional questions, and we are happy to work with you in advance to alleviate day of confusion.
