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 set up and the main structure is disposed of after the event.

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 

Recommended 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. 

Discouraged Onsite

  • 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 

  • Construction of any stand components from single use materials 

  • Building from scratch onsite of any stand core elements 

  • The use of incandescent light bulbs 

  • The use of non-recycled carpet, vinyl flooring, other floor coverings.

REMOVAL OF HANDOUTS

In keeping with our sustainability aims at RiskMinds Americas we are asking that exhibitors do not provide paper 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, RiskMinds Americas 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. RiskMinds Americas's lead generation system will be provided to you to upload these materials, track leads and make notes. Please see more details on this in the Lead Generation section below.

Please contact us if you have any questions about this at all.
