Informa Connect is committed to improving diversity, equality and inclusion in every industry it operates in, through our agendas and specialist programmes to encourage a variety of demographics. We expect all our participants, exhibitors and sponsors to support this ethos. We will be asking all our stakeholders to take care when designing their stands, promotions and other communications to ensure that our events contribute to promoting equality in the industry. Please see these additional guidelines for all sponsor and exhibitor attendees.

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 Rachel Lewis

REMOVAL OF GIVEAWAYS AT SUPERRETURN INTERNATIONAL
In keeping with our sustainability aims at SuperReturn International we are asking that exhibitors do not provide giveaways 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 and giveaways, SuperReturn 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. This data will be used to provide/track charitable donations throughout the event for information and post event reporting. SuperReturn's lead generation system will be provided to you to, track leads and make notes. Please provide at least one and up to ten pdfs to Rachel by 11 October. These will be used to create QR codes to display on your stand.
SuperReturn will make a donation of €5 per exhibition visit to our preferred charity, WWF, with whom we have a wider collaboration throughout the event. We are also encouraging you as exhibitors to consider doing the same – donating to either our chosen charity or one of your preferred charities for each lead generated at your stand. You could then advertise this at your stand should you choose to do so. We ask our exhibitors to use the budget allocated to giveaways to this cause.
If you do choose to donate to a charity of your choice, please do let Rachel Lewis know which charity you would intend this to be - it would need to follow the guidelines found below.
CHARITY DONATIONS GUIDELINES
If you do decide to donate to a charity for each lead generated at the event (as SuperReturn will do - 5€ for each lead), you can either donate to our preferred charity, WWF, with whom we have a wider collaboration throughout the event or to one of your preferred charities.
If you do choose to donate to a charity of your choice, please do let Rachel Lewis know which charity you would intend this to be so that SuperReturn can keep a track of charities who would benefit from this event.
Please note that Informa has the below guidelines for charitable donations:
•Community partners, donation recipients and volunteer hosts must be registered charities
•We cannot support any organisation that discriminates against any group or person, or acts in any way that is inconsistent with Informa’s Business Partner Code of Conduct
•We do not support political causes or single issue lobbying with volunteering or other resources such as donations or free promotional space.
