  • 1. Become Eco-Friendly at Trade Shows Kristin Hovde Smash Hit Displays
  • 2. Facts:
    • The trade show industry is the 2 nd most wasteful industry, right after construction
    • 72% of handouts collected by attendees end up in the trash
  • 3. Ways to Reduce Wastefulness:
    • Recycle Bins
    • Limit the amount of printed materials
    • Use an eco-friendly trade show booth
  • 4. #1 Use Recycle Bins
    • Show attendees you care about the environment by having clearly labeled recycle bins at your convention booth.
    • They will need a place to toss water bottles, pop cans, and cups – so let that place be your trade show display
  • 5. #2 Limit the Amount of Printed Materials
    • These days, exhibitors are turning to technology instead of brochures.
    • For a professional way to display the same information you would put into a brochure, add a monitor to your booth and display a presentation.
    • If that’s not an option for you, bring a laptop and show interested attendees your website and any other information you want them to know.
  • 6. #3 Have an Eco-Friendly Trade Show Booth
    • There are several display options that incorporate “green” materials.
    • Eco System Sustainable Exhibits are made 100 percent of eco-friendly materials, such as:
    • - sustainable materials for the shelves, like bamboo
    • - recyclable/reusable material in the graphics and frame
    • - LED lights that use less energy
  • 7. Why Should You Consider Going Green at Your Next Event?
    • It shows attendees that you and your company are concerned with the environment
    • It will save you time and money on printing and carrying stacks of those pesky brochures
