Exhibiting Sustainably

Sustainability is increasingly important to event attendees. Exhibiting at BPI West gives you the opportunity to highlight your company’s sustainability credentials & align with an event that champions sustainability. To ensure that your company and exhibition stand are aligned with Informa’s sustainability goals:

  1. View the Exhibitor Checklist and Better Stands Framework here and consider the steps as you plan your event
  2. Ensure that your stand is compliant with Informa’s Better Stands programme framework - Please share this guidelines document with your stand contractor

BETTER STANDS - Space Only Stands

Better Stands is an Informa wide programme aiming to ensure that all core elements of Space only exhibitor stands are reusable. Help us to reduce environmental impact by committing to the Better Stands programme framework and show that your company values being part of sustainable and socially responsible events.

What's in it for me?

  • A better quality, more attractive & sustainable stand
  • Opportunity to promote the sustainable credentials of your brand
  • Smoother, more efficient build up and breakdown periods
  • Lower work hours and reduced construction costs
  • Reduce or eradicate your waste bill

What do I need to do?

To make your commitment to Better Stands and contribute to a more sustainable event:

  1. Familiarise yourself with the Better Stands framework
  2. Share the guidelines with your contractor before they begin designing your stand
  3. Ensure your stand reaches at least a bronze level, meaning the stand structure and walls, platform or raised flooring, furniture, equipment and lighting are all reused – Please demonstrate this in your risk assessment and method statement see above
  4. Ensure that the submitted stand design clearly communicates how you will meet the Better Stands guidelines
