Sustainable choices for exhibitors

We strive to create a sustainable future together with our exhibitors. On this page, you will find tips and guidelines on how to make sustainable choices for your event participation. Together, we can reduce our carbon footprint and create a more sustainable meeting place.

Conscious exhibition stand solutions

Plan a high-quality, responsible stand

Planning a stand is crucial for creating a successful and sustainable exhibition experience. Choosing the right materials and design can reduce your impact on the environment.

We offer high-quality, reusable stands and furnishings. Our timeless and durable stand package is designed to optimise exposure and reduce transport needs, which will contribute to a more responsible use of resources.

Stand catering with care

Food and drink accounts for over 30% of our emissions. As an exhibitor, you can reduce your carbon footprint by choosing climate-smart and plant-based options when ordering stand catering. We help you calculate the appropriate quantities to reduce food waste, and we also present the carbon footprint of each dish and product. Choose organic, locally produced, fair trade options when possible.


Eco-certified hotels – a lift ride from the event

Stay at one of our eco-certified hotels, Gothia Towers or Upper House. Everything you need is within walking distance. Our entire facility is certified according to ISO 20121, the standard for event sustainability management. As an exhibitor, you also get a favourable exhibitor price. Book your rooms at Exhibitor Service Online.


Strong brand with eco-friendly choices

Consider the environment when choosing giveaways. Reusable water bottles, coffee mugs and seed packets are great examples of sustainable giveaways that will strengthen your brand.


Travel with the climate in mind

The main emissions in connection with an event usually occur during transport to and from the event. Make climate-smart choices to reduce the carbon footprint of your travel. The Swedish Exhibition and Congress Centre is located in central Gothenburg and is easily accessible by public transport. Trains, trams, and buses are all great options and depart from the Central Station. For travel to Gothenburg from other cities, we recommend that you choose a transportation option with the environment in mind. Don’t forget to carbon offset your journey.


An event for everyone

It is essential that all visitors can attend an event on equal terms, whether visiting your stand or watching the stage. Under the Swedish Discrimination Act, each exhibitor is responsible for ensuring that their stand is accessible and inclusive to all.


Safe and secure meeting place

The safety and security of our meeting places is robust and a high priority. We adapt and scale our security measures according to conditions and needs so that all exhibitors can feel safe with us. Any questions about security before your participation? Please don’t hesitate to contact us!
