The Better Stands programme is aimed to unite and encourage exhibitors, along with their appointed contractors to move away from disposable, single use stands at events, in favour of re-usable or recyclable structures.
A disposable stand/booth is a space only/raw space build that is used only once. They are typically constructed from poor quality raw materials onsite which are then demolished post show and sent to either landfill or are burned.
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. The pace at which your event chooses to implement these stages is something you should discuss, agree and communicate within your individual implementation plan that is part of the Fundamentals 2.0 framework requirements.
