  • Implement procedures to power down your stand during non-operational hours to save energy.
  • Choose reusable, sustainable materials for giveaways and corporate gifts instead of plastic bags.
  • Reuse bespoke elements of your stand and hire furniture to minimize resource consumption.
  • Place recycling bins on your stand to encourage proper waste sorting and reduction.

Printed collateral:

  • Embrace digital solutions to reduce paper waste and opt for recycled paper if printing is necessary.

Initiatives by us, the Organizers:

Digital solutions:

  • We no longer print event guides; instead, we display QR codes that attendees can access for required information.
  • During the event, we utilize digital boards for the Big 5 Talks agenda instead of printed agendas, contributing to paper waste reduction.
  • A lead retrieval app replaces printed business cards, allowing exhibitors to scan and track leads received at their stand.

Catering used at the event:

  • Any remaining food is distributed to workers or venue staff to minimize food waste.

Carpet for the event:

  • We utilize reusable carpet for stands, and the venue is permanently carpeted, contributing to waste reduction efforts.

Plants for the event:

  • We choose native plants over fresh-cut flowers that are usually provided by the venue itself, and in place were suppliers are used, they are returned for proper storage respectively.

Shell scheme stand:

  • The shell scheme materials are reused by the contractor for other shows, resulting in no waste while promoting resource efficiency.

Thermal Badges:

  • Transitioning from plastic badge holders and paper badges to thermal badges will reduce waste, as the durability of thermal paper ensures less frequent replacements and eliminates the need for plastic badge holders.

Signage structures:

  • Wooden structures for signage are reused by the contractor for other shows, promoting resource efficiency.

Other wood and metal waste:

  • We ensure the reuse or recycling of wood and metal waste by the end of the event to reduce landfill contributions.

Sustainable suppliers utilized of the event:

  • We opt to work with sustainable contractors and suppliers that align with our company goals, which include:
