Exhibitor Sustainability Guide

Exhibitor Tips

Reduce signage waste by:

  • Encourage less printing and provide more information digitally when it comes to booth literature, fulfilling requests via email and website referrals.
  • If you must print, create reusable non-dated signs that can be used year after year.
  • Avoid foamcore signs and request recyclable material such as cardboard signage.

Reduce booth waste by:

  • Requesting sustainable options from GES
  • BYOF!- Avoid carpet and bring your own flooring, like puzzle foam flooring that can be reused at all your shows!
  • Break down ALL cardboard boxes and put in the correct recycling bin.
  • Request additional booth bins for recycling and compost collection
  • Use only compostable or recyclable serviceware for samples and give-a-ways.
  • Use the stickers provided at the Exhibitor Services desk to mark your materials for recycling or donation.
  • Set a goal to leave no trace behind by shipping out all booth properties and packing materials and donating extra giveaways.

Visit one of our 3-bin Waste Stations to compost food, compostable cups and other biodegradable products.
