international confex 2023

A hot topic in every industry. But how does an industry with so many parts maintain momentum?

It's easy to overlook even the smallest changes, but they all stack up. This year you may notice that we've reduced the amount of carpeting on-site to theatres and stands to prevent more materials from going to landfill than necessary and we are also being conscious of where we source our signage. Opting for recycled materials that can be recycled again post-event and naturally sourced ink for any necessary where we can to reduce our environmental impact as much as possible. 


Being held accountable for the impact of your events is one of the best ways to instigate change and prompt forward-thinking. As part of our 2023 sustainability strategy, we are partnering with event:decision to assess the environmental impact of hosting Confex.

Post-event we will be working together to draw up a sustainability report, highlighting the areas we could improve on to meet our targets. Our exhibitors also have the opportunity to work with event:decision
