Here are some practical tips on how to make your participation more sustainable:

Stand design & waste:

Choose a reusable booth package from the organizer or design your own booth so that the structure will be reused several times, year after year. Work with your booth builder to make your booth as durable as possible! Avoid creating a one-off outfit just for one event. Create reusable signs made from recyclable materials and with eco-friendly inks whenever possible. Use LED lighting and other energy efficient equipment for your booth and don’t forget to turn it off at the end of the day. Try not to use carpet, and if you really need it, preferably choose reusable carpet tiles. If you use regular carpet, make sure it is recyclable and will be recycled.

Travel and accommodation:

Whenever possible, choose public transport or carpool with your colleagues. Choose a hotel within walking distance and/or apply environmentally friendly practices.

Logistics & transport:

Consolidate your shipments and preferably use transport and logistics companies that apply sustainable practices. Favor local suppliers to support the local economy and reduce transport. Favor suppliers who demonstrate environmental and social merits.

Food & Food Waste:

Bring your own reusable water bottle and use our water stations to help us reduce the use of single-use plastics. If you serve food in your booth, preferably choose locally produced and plant-based options and avoid using single-use plastic. Avoid food waste and only order the amount of food needed.

Social responsibility:

Take an active role in the various initiatives and discussions during the event that will support sustainable development in your sector. Inspire visitors by showcasing the sustainable features of your products.
