Become a Vendor at the Inaugural SWFL Sustainability Summit!

Education is a vital to understand sustainable and STEM based practices in the workplace. Businesses and non-profits that utilize these methods are more likely to reduce their overall costs, environmental footprint, and foster stable employment in an ever-growing industry. Vendors who participate in the Southwest Florida Sustainability Summit will be able to promote and educate local business and civic leaders in our community on how to incorporate sustainable business plans and practices. Valuable exposure, product sales, and networking are all benefits to vendors participating in the 2015 Summit. A registration fee is collected to reserve your space – all proceeds raised from vendor registration will be donated to the Imaginarium Science Center to promote science and technology education for youth. To register as a vendor please complete and return the SWFL Sustainability Summit Sponsor and Vendor Package no later than April 1, 2015.
