If you took the time to read Megan Headley's past couple of posts, you would be looking at things a little different(I hope). Showrooms can be a great outlet for goods and publicity if handled correctly, a nightmare and money drain if not. No one way is correct. Look at your neighborhood and the types of traffic that pass your shop and gear the showroom to the audience. It doesn't have to be big, just eye catching, after all the object is to get people in.
Max Perilstien mentioned "daylighting" in plants, offices and of course show rooms. If you have any doubt, check out the article in USGN on the guys who do the Wal-Mart stores. It works. People produce more and of better quality when the work area is filled with daylight. Why do you think glass openings are getting bigger and bigger?
As side note....I was disappointed on the lack of recycling while at the BEC in Las Vagas. Not so much the BEC itself but Vegas in general. The "World Renewable Energy" Conference was across from the BEC and even they did not seem to put in much of an effort.
Recycling has been a way of life for quite a few years, where I live on Long Island, I found it difficult to just dump everything in to the same garbage can.
Green is here not only to stay but grow. My advice , get on board before you fall too far behind.
good luck with the green and I don't mean St Patrick day.
