  5. Advertise your sustainability policy well
  6. Implementing event standards such as ISO 20121
  7. Report on your sustainability actions using the GRI Event Organiser Sector Supplement
  8. Educate yourself and your staff
  9. Consider offering a ‘virtual’ gift bag to your attendees
  10. Be proud about your achievements and shout about them

Graeme Barnett, Reed Travel Exhibitions, EIBTM Event Director commented, “Sustainability is of key importance to us and we are continually looking for more ways to support our attendees through the stand design and exhibiting process. We run a Sustainable Stand Award each year and were delighted to announce that Switzerland Convention & Incentive Bureau were awarded this accolade for EIBTM 2012."
