Delivering Sustainable Events
At Conference Expo, we work hard to reduce our environmental impact whilst helping organisers deliver sustainable events. By choosing Conference Expo’s prescribed stand package solution, organisers benefit from a supplier that heavily invests in initiatives that reduce our carbon footprint and that of our client’s projects.
We do this through the consolidation of logistics, re-use of hired stands and accessories, efficient printing techniques and adopting a zero-land fill approach. In addition to our green endeavours, working with WWF and Gold Standard, Conference Expo also sponsors accredited schemes with a dual mandate of reducing carbon emissions whilst fostering sustainable development.
What is Hired?
- Complete stand framework structure including low wottage LED overhead lighting.
- All highlighted elements are optional bolt-on accessories that can be hired to upgrade your core stand package.
- LED screens used conform to the latest energy saving technology available.
What is Not Hired?
- All printed graphic elements that ‘skin’ the stand structure such e.g. the back wall and counter face. We reduce the use of all harmful compounds in graphics production by opting for non-solvent based inks when printing.
How Conference Expo Reduces Co2 Emissions
How we further reduce our exhibiting footprint

- Recycling of all available waste streams where possible
- We manufacture using 95% recycled materials
Proud To Be Carbon Neutral
In addition to our green endeavours and as a way of mitigating our remaining emissions, in January 2019 we began a carbon offsetting scheme enabling us to be carbon neutral. Working with WWF and Gold Standard, Conference Expo from Nimlok have sponsored accredited schemes with a dual mandate of reducing carbon emissions whilst fostering sustainable development.

- Slowing the rate of deforestation by replacing biomass with LPG.
- Empowering women and reducing gender inequality by training women entrepreneurs to deliver the stoves through microfinance schemes.
- Alleviating poverty by enabling energy savings.
Rwanda Safe Water Access Initiative
- Less time and effort spent collecting wood to boil and sanitise water.
