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. 


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


**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

  • 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 

  • 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.
