Sustainability

We know sustainability is increasingly important to our attendees and exhibitors, as well as to our market as a whole. Running our events gives us lots of opportunities to improve our impact socially, environmentally and economically.

 

Beyond our responsibility to make our events as sustainable as possible, we also want to support the security community in becoming more sustainable as an industry. Through connecting stakeholders, championing best practices and curating expert content our aim is to help solve the big challenges in our sector.

Better stands

Better Stands is our landmark campaign to reduce the waste that stands and booths at exhibitions can create. We are working with customers to phase out all disposable stands at our EMEA events by 2024.

Plus, we are looking to expand this initiative to other regions and by co-ordinating with our peers and partners in the industry.

Better Stands also shows how sustainable business can be better business too. Reusable structures not only reduce waste but they can reduce the time it takes to construct and take down stands, reduce the cost of design and construction and allow for investment in higher quality and more successful stands.
