GOING GREEN
As the UK's must-attend furniture and interiors event, we have a responsibility to set an example and we will continue to put new sustainability initiatives in place. It’s an unfortunate truth that events can be extremely wasteful. In 2019 our recycling rate was 76.4%. For 2020 we are aiming for over 80%. Let's work together to make a greener future for January Furniture Show.
Landyards
  ReuseAfter the show we will be able to reuse the lanyards for future shows.
  ProcedureWe will set-up two containers at the exit of the show. One will be to place the lanyards and the other one for the name badges.
Life's Not a Red Carpet, It's a Green One!

All the carpet being used for the show is 100% recyclable. After the show it will be sent to a carpet recycling plant where the carpet fabric will be then made into new products.  
 

Stay Hydrated
   Reusable coffee cupsWe will be giving a discount at our cafes to those who bring their own reusable cup for their coffee.
   Water Refill StationsWe will provide water refill stations for our visitors and exhibitors to refill their water bottles.

This initiative will prevent the use of single-use plastic bottles, while also reducing the overall carbon footprint of our show.

No Excuse for Single-Use
In every hall there will be sorting bins for recycling. This practice will help to recycle plastic, paper, cardboard, glass and aluminium products. These can include beverages bottles, cans, paper (flyers handed out by exhibitors) and cardboard (packing materials from venders).
Good Food, Good Mood

Our catering supplier will provide fresh, organic and local food in our cafes.
The NEC in-house caterer, Amadeus, is committed to sourcing locally, travelling no more than 30 miles to get the best products. They also support a wide range of small and medium sized businesses.

Waste Not, Want Not
   Graphics: We are reuseing some of our signage from last year’s show. We have not added any dates on these designs so they can be reusable year on year.

*if graphics or stands cannot be reused we will recycle them at the local processor near the NEC.*
Take a Stand For The Love of Green!

   Stands: We will encourage exhibitors to reuse their stands for future shows. 

 

Please, Less Paper!
By the use of technology and JFSConnect we will reduce the amount of printed documents on-site, such as magazines and brochures. Our press stand will include a touchpoint for all trade magazines.
