It is always important to consider your environmental impact, regardless of what you are taking part in. This means double checking the food you purchase. It involves buying that product that costs a little bit more but is made with organic materials and free of pesticides and furniture.
Today, even trade show displays can be created! This is an important industry shift, especially because there has been continuous move in the industry towards disposable displays, a method known as build and burn. But as the industry has grown and shifted and we see a sharper turn towards producing very company specific and elaborate pieces of equipment, it is becoming increasing common that trade show displays are used multiples times and are later repurposed or sold. Indeed, some displays are even rented and returned. This trend is most prevalent in the United States and North American and Europe, though the tendency in Asia continues to be the build and burn model, as raw materials and labor are more costly in the business of rental displays and said options are rarely competitive in price.
Eco friendly exhibits can be created from a number of materials. The most common environmentally conscious material from which trade show displays are produced, however, is bamboo. These types of displays are most often used to create products that are meant to have a certain natural air to them. These displays are also more commonly used for products that are environmentally conscious, as it would be counter intuitive to create an eco friendly product and to display said product on a not environmentally conscious booth. When bamboo is laminated, its strength and appearance are similar to that of hardwood, which makes it a good selection for presentations that are higher end. Using environmentally conscious products can be a big boon to companies, especially those looking to cash in on the environmentalist fads that circulate.
Used exhibits are similar to used cars: there is not anything inherently wrong with buying a used exhibit, it is simply an exhibit by exhibit decision that depends on the desires of the consumer. Sometimes they are worn, but not necessarily. Show rooms and rental facilities often have a few laying around, and they are worth using, especially if one is not interested in purchasing one’s own display.
It seems, however, the best decision for a company would be to go with a custom designed event display, especially one designed by IGE Group. The latest trends towards sustainability via used exhibits and eco friendly materials are strong moves, but another move in the industry has been towards creating an exhibit that a company uses multiple times. The concept of reuse of course continues to cut back on the environmental impact of trade show displays. Therefore, designing a custom made exhibit specific to your company and its needs is a strong decision, both for your company and for the environment. Rather than renting a new exhibit each trade show you attend, you get the added benefits of ease and personalized style. Even use bamboo to make your custom booth environmentally friendly!
