As a major organizer of events and exhibitions, Aviation Week, a division of Informa, has the opportunity and responsibility to lead the sustainable development of our industry. Our attendees, exhibitors and colleagues are all clearly telling us that sustainability, socially, economically and environmentally, is somethingthat is no longer a “nice to have” but a necessary part of our success.
We also have the potential to go further than our responsibility to deliver our events sustainably: we can design our events to provide a place to work in partnership with our customers and inspire the sustainable development of the industries we serve. For more information on Aviation Week and Informa’s overall commitment to sustainable events click here.
Follow these tips to make sure your sustainable booth strategies are cost-neutral or even cost-saving! Leave an impact on the show floor, not the environment.
