New Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center Goes Eco-Friendly

POMONA, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 18, 2011) - The Los Angeles County Fair Association is proud to announce the new Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center will be eco-friendly and designed to incorporate several LEED components to ensure green operations. Opening in late fall of 2011, the complex is designed to operate with optimum efficiency and follow a code of sustainability so organizations scheduling events at the facility are supporting an environmentally sound development with all of the state-of-the art features they require.

Construction of the Fairplex center includes recycled concrete, aluminum and other building materials, and incorporates a rain harvesting system that stores rain to use in irrigating the landscape for total water efficiency. Even the facility's lighting, plumbing, heating and air-conditioning systems will all be at high efficiency levels.

To ensure Earth Day is every day at the Fairplex, the property also boasts its own urban farm so all meals for the hotel and catering at the conference center are prepared using local produce grown on-site to provide guests a delicious farm-to-table dining experience. The Fairplex even prepares table-to-farm dinners, where the chef prepares meals table-side in the farm.

The 85,000 square foot Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center is situated amid a serene park-like setting, surrounded by lush greenery with dozens of additional trees to be planted. The multi-use property with everything in close proximity allows guests to walk the beautiful grounds, take activities outdoors and walk to the hotel and restaurants without driving.

This high-tech center features the latest in flexibility with limitless configurations from spacious seminar rooms, smaller breakout rooms and expansive exhibit halls to large conference rooms and sit-down banquet spaces for a diverse range of events. Every space is outfitted with interactive tele- and video-conferencing capabilities, WiFi, large screens, audio/visual assets and the technical team to support it all.

The Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center, located in the 543-acre Fairplex campus, is home of the Los Angeles County Fair. Visit www.fairplex.com for up-to-date details.
