By working together, we can make the event more memorable, meet our audience’s expectations and reduce wasted time, resources, and costs.
We would like to encourage you to join our sustainability efforts by completing the below 10 point checklist:
Istanbul Jewelry Show is committed to running sustainable, socially responsible events that have a limited impact on the environment. Like all industries we are looking for ways to reduce our carbon footprint and the amount of waste our events produce.
What is a disposable stand?
The structure of a stand (e.g. the walls) are made to be used only once, and is therefore demolished and disposed of at the end of the event.
What is a resuable stand?
The structure is made using a system designed for multiple uses and in different formats and sizes to suit the client's style. It can be owned by the client or most often rented from a contractor.
How you can make a difference?
When choosing your contractor, make sure they are using a process which allows them to use the structure of the stand time and again. Specify it in your tender and ask them to confirm what will happen to the stand after the show.
Benefits to building a non-disposable stand
*Faster, cleaner and safer build with a more reliable timeline –no stress!
*Reduced costs due to a lower waste bill and fewer labour hours
*Higher quality look and feel for your stand
*Demonstrates your company’s commitment to sustainability with a lower environmental impact
To make your commitment to Better Stands and contribute to a more sustainable event read the Better Stands brochure and ensure you understand how your stand reaches at least a Bronze level.
We will be encouraging all our exhibitors and their contractors to join us in not using disposable stands.
The Better Stands programme has been divided into three key stages - Bronze, Silver and Gold. This helps facilitate a gradual transition from disposable to reusable stands for all exhibitors.
We classify all stands into four categories - Disposable, Bronze, Silver or Gold -depending on the particular elements that are reused or recycled.
All elements of a particular category must be reused or recycled in order to achieve that classification. If the stand does not reuse all of the elements in the Bronze level, it is classed as Disposable.
As long as each element is reused rather than single use or disposable, then a Better Stand will look the same or likely better than what you currently have. It can be designed & built to suit your individual needs - the only limit is your stand designer’s imagination
As long as each element is being reused rather than thrown away, most materials can be used to build a Better Stand.
Better Stands aims at moving all of our exhibitor stands to have reached at least a Bronze level according to the Better Stands 10 box framework.
All space only / raw space / free build stands are categorised into 4 levels as shown in the table below. The red dots denote that the specific element of the stand build was largely disposable, the green ticks denote that the specific elements of the stand build was reusable or recycled. For an exhibitor to classed as Bronze, they must reuse all 4 elements shown, for Silver all 8 elements and so on.
