EXHIBITING SUSTAINABLY

Sustainability is increasingly important to event attendees. Exhibiting at BPI Europe 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?

  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

Green Meeting

We want to carry out this event according to the Guideline of the Austrian Ecolabel for Green Meetings and Green Events. In this context, we try to save resources, avoid waste, and act in an environmentally conscious way in all fields. Please read below some of the following ways you can help us contribute to being a Green Event. 


  • Reduce the volume of the material to be transported and to be stored as far as possible.
  • Avoid mass distribution of flyers or other printed matter, hand out printed matter only upon request, or give preference to electronic information transfer (e.g. indication of links for download, etc.).
  • Use 100% recycling paper or at least paper bleached completely without the use of chlorine (TFC) for the required printed matter, or commission a certified printing company with the printing job according to the guidelines of the Austrian Eco-label. Reuse the remaining brochures at other events.
  • Turn off electricity during the assembly of the booth and during night; do not leave the standby function of appliances on during the night.
  • Do not offer giveaways. If this is not possible, use durable and/or reusable products made of environmentally sound materials (domestic wood, natural fibres) without synthetic individual packaging, without batteries, from fair trade, or with certified quality seals.
  • Use reusable, environmentally-friendly decoration.
  • Prefer cloth and paper bags instead of plastic bags.
  • Return your badges/name tags at the registration desk after the event for us to recycle your badge.
  • Select accommodations for your staff members which are as close as possible to the venue.
  • Use public means of transport, and organise car pools, or walk.
