Sustainability at IGES

Sustainability improves the quality of our lives, protects our ecosystem, preserves natural resources for future generations, and has become a powerful value proposition to increasingly conscious consumers. Retailers that follow sustainable practices show that their business is aware of society’s social and environmental issues and wants to alleviate how they contribute. Because of this, we’ve selected the top 10 companies that will exhibit at IGES 2023 that follow sustainable practices and will be a part of the Sustainability Shopping Tour.

2023 Sustainable Vendors in Sevierville

We will visit these companies during the Sustainability Shopping Tour as part of the Sustainability In Retail Professional Program (SRPP). The tour will be led by Tommy Brown of the St. Louis Zoo, Sustainability Buyer, from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 7th.
