Sustainable development is taking the Exhibition Industry by Storm!
As many people push for a greener, more efficient and socially responsible world, Exhibit Group are developing more pioneering initiatives for the Exhibition, Events and Retail Industry. Sooner rather than later, stand-alone approaches are becoming inadequate in sustainable development and we’re already ahead of the game with this one. We’re already using great techniques such as cardboard furniture, biodegradable vinyl’s and Aluvision Exhibition builds which can be used again and again.
Top Tips for a greener Exhibition or Event
Consider creating easily transportable custom build displays, or free-standing sections that are reusable. Modular Exhibition stands are an efficient, cost-effective and eco-friendly option for businesses that attend multiple shows per year. These stands are reusable, reconfigurable and recyclable.
Exhibit Group hold the largest range of Aluvision in the UK which means we really can make any shape or size that you’re after. Aluminium frames can be fully recycled and modular structures allow total flexibility for environmentally friendly exhibiting. The modular kits are easy to set up, reconfigure and pack down to store and transport. As a company, Exhibit Group can dismantle the aluminium frame and reuse it time and time again.
One Off Show? Time to Hire
If you’re planning to attend a small number of events, such as an occasional trade or business expo, hiring an exhibition stand will not only save you a considerable amount on the purchasing cost, but it will also be reusable. It’s really easy to reskin and reconfigure rental Exhibition stands to reflect new messaging or brand reducing any unnecessary waste.
Here at Exhibit Group, we also have a great range of furniture products for you to hire which will help create the atmosphere that you have envisioned for your Exhibition or Event.
What about Cardboard?
Exhibit Group have a great range of cardboard products for our clients to make their Events and Exhibitions more environmentally. Using 100% cardboard displays or cardboard furniture for your stand and branding will be a great way to think ‘greener’. Plus, they’re 100% recyclable when they’re ready to be disposed of.
All our cardboard products can be printed on to display your logo and brand message. We can also use our biodegradable vinyl to add a different aesthetic look to your cardboard items. From displays, shelving, tables, chairs, stools and more we’re sure to have exactly what you’re after.
Alternatively, Exhibit Group have a great team of designers and carpenters who can make a range of products from woods which are environmentally friendly. We recently used our carpentry skills by building a shelter for our stand at the VM and Display show.
Reduce your Congestion
Where possible, plan ahead and try to cover everything you need in one visit. If you can send all your even materials together, you will cut down on packaging and the impact on shipping things in multiple vehicles.
Exhibit Group can offer you the full package from design, delivery and installation. We offer a great range of services in-house to make sure everything arrives at the same time, from graphics, furniture hire, exhibition stands and event management. We have a great range of off-the-shelf products as well as offering a more bespoke service.
Flooring for your Exhibition stand is really important as it’s often the first part of your stand that visitors will see. Imagine having a great flooring that is recyclable too. Exhibit Group have a great range of premium carpets which are durable and easy to clean, which makes them a perfect reusable and sustainable flooring solution. They can even be disposed of in an eco-friendly manner as carpet tiles can be fully recycled.
Alternatively, if carpet tiles aren’t right for your exhibition stand, then choose flooring made from natural materials, which can be recycled after the exhibition. Get in contact with our team, who will be more than happy to advise you on the best flooring solution for your Exhibition or Event.
Use energy-efficient lighting
Simply replacing standard light fixtures on your Exhibition stand with energy efficient lighting such as LED will have a big impact on your greener Exhibition or Event. LED lights are recyclable as they contain no hazardous materials such as lead or mercury, which are harmful to the environment. There is reduced CO2 emissions, less power is drawn and up to 90% less energy is consumed compared with traditional incandescent bulbs. LED Bulbs also cost a reduced amount to operate and need replacing less often as they last approximately 50,000 hours. They come in a range of colours which can be adapted to fit your exhibiting needs.
Exhibit Group have a great range of Illuminated products which are powered by LED.
Cut Down on Materials
With the use of Wi-Fi becoming very popular at Exhibitions, there really is no need to print off mountains of printed marketing materials. Instead, use software to collect details and email out the material your visitors are after. QR Codes, USBs and digital handouts are a great way to communicate your marketing messages and stay green at Exhibitions. Exhibit Group have a great range of plinths to hire which can hold a laptop or iPad to take email addresses on to follow up with after the show.
Exhibit Group can print on a variety of substrates which can be reused time and time again or that are 100% recyclable. Contact us for more information about how you can print your brand message for your next Event or Exhibition.
Rethink your Giveaways
When choosing your giveaway options, ensure they’re recyclable. What’s more, any giveaways should be useful objects that won’t get thrown away. Not only is that bad for the environment, but it could reflect badly on your business if your brand name is seen in the bin.
The only way to promote being green and sustainability is to shout about it so if you choose to go green make sure you let your visitors, guests, customers, existing and new clients know about it.
Having a greener Exhibition or Event not only has great benefits for the environment but can also help boost profits by cutting out waste and drive brand loyalty too.
