What’s in the #WBENCconf Bag?

*New* 2019 WBENC Ecosystem workbook

We are thrilled to offer the first-ever WBENC Ecosystem Guide & Workbook, a comprehensive and interactive guide to the WBENC ecosystem.

You can use this guide while in Baltimore to help navigate the event and the WBENC ecosystem as a whole, but it’s also a great take-home resource to help ensure you’re making the most out of every opportunity in this vibrant and growing network.

Sponsored by Guy Brown and PS Energy, the WBENC Ecosystem Guide & Workbook will be available at registration. Make sure you pick one up (and keep it with you!) to uncover the many ways you can CONNECT, GROW and THRIVE while in Baltimore and beyond.

sustainable Reusable Water Bottle & Coffee mug

Each year at WBENC, we make strides towards hosting a more sustainable event by reducing our paper output and being more efficient in our energy consumption. WBENC and our Sustainability Sponsors care deeply about incorporating more and more sustainable practices.

Focusing on reducing the number of single-use water bottles, NEI Global Relocation and Pacific Gas and Electric Company have sponsored a reusable water bottle. Grab this bottle from your bag and look for their logos on hydration stations throughout the Baltimore Convention Center avoid single-use plastics and stay hydrated throughout the event.

To eliminate some of the waste of single-use coffee cups onsite, Bay Corrugated Container, Inc. and The Home Depot have sponsored a reusable travel coffee mug. Use this mug and find the coffee carts with their logos throughout the convention center to reduce your waste and stay caffeinated throughout the event.

metal drinking straws - wbenc commemorative gift

WBENC Commemorative Gift sponsors, Johnson & Johnson and Overture, LLC, have also provided an eco-friendly goody for conference attendees. Metal drinking straws are reusable and perfect for use with your water bottle and coffee mug, or any other cup for which you would normally use a disposable plastic straw. Replacements for plastic straws that pollute our oceans are all the rage for a reason - help the environment in style by using these WBENC metal straws with all of your beverages!
