    Location, location, location! San Diegos 2.6-million-square-foot Convention Center is located in the bustling downtown area and sits next to sparkling San Diego Bay. Its in such a fabulous spot that most people who come for business end up wanting to stay on for vacation. Not surprising, the San Diego Convention Center (SDCC) is a top choice for conventions, trade shows, meetings, and special events. And its been a boon to the citys economy. Since it opened in 1989, the SDCC has generated $359.3 million in sales and hotel room tax revenues, hosted more than 4,000 events, and provided more than 12,000 jobs in the county, according to the SDCC. Pretty impressive! And there are plans for even more improvements. A Phase III expansion is currently under discussion. Proposed plans include additional exhibition and meeting space, as well as improved access to the Convention Center neighborhood via a completed Park-to-Bay Link. Another possible highlight: development of a nonindustrial activity area, where hotels, green space, the Convention Center, and the Park-to-Bay Link would meet at the waterfront. One of the standout features of the SDCC is its green policies. In fact, its possible to host green meetings. Recycling diverts approximately 40 percent of the Centers total waste; energy-efficient heating and cooling systems and energy-saving appliances are used; solar panels are to be completed by the end of 2010; water conservation efforts save some 81,026 gallons of

    water annually; a food composting program diverts 150 tons of food waste annually; and purchased productsfrom copy paper to cleaning supplies are made from recycled or environmentally friendly materials. And of course the food served is organic and sustainably grown and surplus food and supplies are donated to local charities. And, because some 11,000 hotel rooms, numerous restaurants, and attractions are all within walking distance of the Convention Center, transportation to and from the Center is virtually unnecessary, which cuts down on car and bus emissions. All this foresight and work has been recognized. In 2010 alone, the Center has won numerous awards, including a Clean Air Circle Honoree, from the American Lung Association; Large Service Provider of the Year, from the California Restaurant Association, San Diego Chapter; Recycler of the Year, from the City of San Diego; Prime Site Award, from Facilities

    & Destinations; and the Best Convention Center, from Southern California Meetings and Events. Some highlights in weeks and months to come: the San Diego International Auto Show (12/30/2010-1/2/2011), the San Diego Home Show (1/7/2011-1/9/2011), and the Bridal Bazaar (1/30/2011). Kudos to you, green San Diego!
