Make an impact without the environmental cost

Sustainable exhibition stands that pack a design punch

The exhibition industry is not known for its eco-friendly sustainable approach. But it doesn’t need to be this way, and we’re making a stand (no pun intended!).

We build and deliver genuinely more eco-friendly exhibition stands for brands and businesses who are aware of their environmental impact and carbon footprint and want to demonstrate that they are making a difference in how they exhibit.

We carefully examine each project we undertake to ensure that we can advise our clients on the best practices for delivering an environmentally friendly exhibition stand.

how do we build sustainable exhibition stands?

We’re always looking at ways to make our stand-building process more sustainable. From our logistics to the materials we use, careful consideration is given to every aspect of our client’s projects to make sure we’re supplying the most environmentally sustainable exhibition stands possible!

  • Energy – All the power, light and heating we use is provided by suppliers with green credentials, and 100% of our electrical tariff is from renewable energy sources. Our fleet of vehicles is electric, and we can even offer clients a charging station to use when they visit.
  • Supply chain – We ensure that all our suppliers not only provide more eco-friendly products but can demonstrate environmental best practices in everything from the delivery of products down to the recycling of materials.Installation and delivery – Where possible, we always encourage using electric vehicles for delivery, and we aim to have a fully electric fleet by 2026.Premises and location – Our headquarters have excellent energy efficiency and are ideally positioned to serve some of the largest exhibition halls in the UK, reducing miles travelled. Our staff are encouraged to walk, cycle or use public transport to travel to work, making their commutes as environmentally friendly as possible!

    Waste management – Every year we are increasing the waste we recycled or materials reused, reducing our carbon footprint in the process.

    Materials – We carefully select sustainable or renewable materials. We use sustainable eco board (rather than PVC foam board), recycled aluminium composite boards and non-PVC vinyls, and all our acrylic substitutes are from recycled sources.

    Timber – We carefully select any timber used in our projects from the FSC or PEFC chain of custody suppliers. We rent out timber displays and furniture, which are then refurbished, renewed and reused to remove waste from the process.

    Reusable modular systems – Our twist and lock modular system is a fully recyclable and reusable system that will still look brand new use after use while having a huge impact in the exhibition halls.

    Single-use plastics and PVC – We avoid single-use plastics wherever possible and can advise on best practices to remove these from your displays.

    Flooring and carpets – We offer a wide range of sustainable woollen alternatives to polyester carpets. All the raised flooring we use is a modular, rental and fully reusable system that can be easily transported. 

    Lighting and electricity use – We offer an energy-efficient rental lighting system.
