At Informa Connect, we have an ambition to become a champion of sustainability within our business and across the specialist markets we serve.
As part of our FasterForward programme, we have committed to a series of specific and ambitious goals and activities that, over a five year period, will help us become an ever more sustainable, high impact business while supporting and accelerating change in our markets.
EXHIBITOR SUSTAINABILITY CHECKLIST
Firstly we have put together a useful checklist for you to follow on how you can exhibit at our event more sustainably - click here to learn more
Through our commitment to the evolution of the exhibitions industry, we aim to ensure that we are delivering the best possible experience for our customers. We believe that by moving away from the use of disposable exhibition booth we will improve the ease, quality, safety and sustainability of the exhibitor experience at our events. Therefore, as part of event regulation we ask that exhibitors do not use disposable booth. Disposable booths are defined as space only stands made to be used only once which are usually constructed from raw materials at the venue during build up and the main structure is disposed of after the event. For more information and support, please contact Cat Farrer
MORE INFO ON BETTER STANDS - click here
*We are specifying that any freebuild exhibitors must demonstrate evidence at both the design concept and build methodology that your stand’s core structural materials are re-useable or recycled
Core elements i.e. walls, archways, counters etc. must be constructed with reusable materials e.g. system build or stock panels
The stand structure must be prefabricated and ready to assemble onsite
Final adjustments to prefabricated pieces for fitting purposes is allowed
Final coat of acceptable TVOC paints for repair purposes only
Floor flats and system floors must be cut to size before coming onsite and be recyclable and/or reusable
The use of LED lighting
The use of recycled carpet, vinyl flooring, other floor coverings.
The use of one-time MDF panels or similar raw materials planned to be cutting to size onsite
The use of ‘other’ raw materials to construct core structural elements i.e. walls, archways, floor systems, counters, etc. that are not planned to be reused or recycled after use

REMOVAL OF HANDOUTS & SUSTAINABLE GIVEAWAYS
In keeping with our sustainability aims at IMpower - FundForum we are asking that exhibitors do not provide handouts at this event and we would like all of our exhibitors to embrace this sustainability goal with us.
In order to assist with this, and remove the need for handouts, IMpower - FundForum will provide QR codes to exhibitors that can be shown on your stand – these can be used for people to download materials such as white papers or brochures, or to simply share their details with you. IMpower - FundForum lead generation system will be provided to you to track leads and make notes.
In order to generate engagement at your exhibition stand we recommend you generate an experience at your booth to encourage people to visit.
If you wish to have any branded giveaways at your stand, in keeping with IMpower’s sustainability goals, these must be sustainable in nature. This means they should either be fully recyclable or have longevity of use. They must not contain any single use plastics and you should be aware of the carbon footprint of any items you order. They should support the carbon neutral initiative that IMpower embraces. Please also be aware of the volume of your order – and do not have lots of spare items that will not then be used.
Please see below our advice on how to be more sustainable with your giveaways:
• Find things that are made locally so shipping is more sustainable.
• Avoid gifts that need heavy packaging, which immediately ends up in a landfill.
• Consider what the object is made of. Bamboo is one preferred eco-friendly material. Plastic is a no-no.
• If you give away apparel, look for products made of ethically sourced, organic material. Consider skipping the logo so that the garment has a longer life.
• If you have to ship the gift, avoid overnight delivery and consider buying offsets to cover the carbon footprint of the shipping.
