St. Louis Sports & Sustainability Symposium

Loading Events

The St. Louis Sports & Sustainability Symposium at the St. Louis Cardinal’s Busch Stadium will convene regional professional and collegiate sports teams and venues, concessionaires, business and public leaders, and athletes to explore how the industry can make plays to advance healthier, more sustainable communities.

Programming will focus on four of our key program areas: Venues, Food, Waste, and Energy. The day will be a combination of keynotes and panels, with ample time for networking and engaging with other event attendees. We will also have a small ‘Vendor Showcase’ for our sponsors with some select services/products on display.

As part of the registration cost, you receive access to our post-event reception and a ticket to the Cardinals vs. Brewers game that evening.


Member discounts are available. Contact Garrett Wong for more information.
