Eco-friendly is the buzz-word now. And we have taken this to heart. In fact, we have taken this a further and brought in the whole sustainability spectrum – from financial, time, logistic to greener products. Let’s face it, in the end its usually the bottom line that dictates our decision making.  In the event and exhibition industry known for its disproportionate wastage post event, many companies are now offering more eco-friendly solutions.

One of the great success stories is WOSA – Wines of South Africa. Arguably the largest eco-friendly exhibitions in the world. Since 2012, the show is built mainly using FB. There are about 300 6m2 booths for individual wine farms and 20 to 30 other larger stands that are either custom built or in the case of this year constructed in EFB. Some 6000m2 of sustainable exhibitions. All complete a day and a half before the doors opened.

Post event no need for skips and far less trucks clogging up the marshal yards. Most exhibitors opted to keep and re-use their components for future marketing purposes.
