In exhibitions too, ‘Green’ is the way to go! Many exhibitors are taking steps to participate in exhibitions by opting for eco-friendly methods.
If you too are looking to ‘go green’ for your next show, we bring you some helpful tips
Do away with custom stands, make way for modular
Generally custom stands are made of wood. Even booth design ideas for most bespoke stands suggested by stand companies are created with wood. The first step to go green is to avoid wood as much as possible. Also the creation, assembly and dismantling of the exhibition stands is not a very clean and eco-friendly process. On the other hand modular exhibition stands are made with sustainable material that can not only be reused several times but is also environment friendly, hence most exhibition stand companies in Dubai recommend modular stands to seasoned exhibitors. Also, the assembly and dismantling process of a modular stand does not pollute the environment whatsoever.
Go for exhibition stand rentals
Most rental exhibition stand designs available in the market nowadays are modular. Modular exhibition stands have a high return on investment and when you opt for rental modular stands it is even cheaper. It is not only cost effective but also eco-friendly.
Opt for reusable furniture
Not only the exhibition stand but also the furniture you use at exhibitions can be environment friendly. Instead for going for wooden furniture opt for fiber, be it shelves or even seating arrangements at your exhibition stall, you can switch wooden furniture with fiber. Not only is it eco-safe but it will also give you good return on investment.
Avoid wood flooring
Just like your wooden furniture and other booth design ideas and elements you can replace your wooden flooring with sustainable materials. Carpets made out of fiber or titles can be recycled later and put to better use after the show.
Use eco-friendly paint and adhesive
The materials used in the manufacturing and assembly process of your exhibition stand design matter too. Instead of opting for normal paint and adhesives for your stand construction go for non toxic and eco safe paint and adhesive. It could be on a slightly expensive side but it is absolutely safe.
Say no to paper and yes to technology
From posters to your marketing literature, paper is used offhandedly everywhere during exhibitions. To portray your brand as a socially conscious one, reduce the usage of paper to bare minimum. Instead of printing out several brochures, catalogues and reading material for your visitors, email it to them. This will not only prove cost effective but you can also use their email address for further correspondence.
Use eco-friendly lights
Most exhibition stands in Dubai are equipped with LED lights because unlike incandescent they don’t heat up. They are cost efficient and energy efficient as well.
There are many other ways as well, to have a ‘green’ exhibition, but the above listed tips are some of the most adopted methods by brands and companies to have an eco-friendly show.
