How Request Shed reduces carbon footprint at exhibitions & conferences

537

Request Shed™ focuses on sustainable events and has set out to combat wasted marketing materials by hosting brochures and media in a self-service content hub. Offering kiosk solutions and contactless access for visitors for virtual, hybrid and in-person events.

The Challenge

At every exhibition, trade fair or sales event around the world, thousands of printed marketing materials are being handed out to anyone within reach, with the slim hope that someone will take a second glance and consider your products or services. This often results in high print costs and possible lost leads.

Seems a bit wasteful? Well, that is exactly what interactive engagement specialists, Red Shed Media thought as for years they witnessed first-hand the masses of printed collateral being discarded at the end of an event.

For some it was their only event of the year meaning that next year’s brochures would change and be re-printed. For others such as Pharma companies, it was a case that the literature being given out was show specific and legally could only be handed out at that single event. Surplus stocks were destined for the bin. It made no sense.
