A booth dedicated solely to the topic of sustainability at Trade Fairs demonstrated the different processes around an exhibition booth from a new perspective, showcasing best practices from planning & conception, logistics, implementation, catering, and smart waste management. This was a partner initiative between .fwd, IFES and Messe Dusseldorf itself.

Global Village

Using mainly reusable, or at least recycled and recyclable materials for the IFES Global Village Booth at EuroShop 23, enabled the building of a 500 sqm booth with only 16 tons of CO2 emissions. Those were completely offset with gold standard certificates supporting a windfarm project in Turkey.

The 500 sqm carpet from Montecolino was completely recycled and is now used as cardboard flatpack furniture.
