HOTEL ACCOMMODATION

Please book accommodation here. We're currently confirming our accommodation with the Fairmont and will hopefully have this available to our sponsors over the next few weeks. 

Demand for rooms can be very high, so please book early to avoid disappointment. IMpower - FundForum takes no responsibility for hotel reservations.

Informa Connect does not have a third party hotel booking agency representing this event aside from the above links. If you are contacted to book accommodation by any agency, this is not recommended as they are unknown to Informa Connect and the hotel.

STAND INFORMATION

Please ensure you read through each section

EXHIBITING SUSTAINABLY

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

BETTER STANDS 

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  

Permitted Onsite

  • 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. 

Prohibited Onsite

  • The use of one-time MDF panels or similar raw materials planned to be cutting to size onsite

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.
