Here are some details of our first deployment of our new range of completely reusable and recyclable exhibition print materials at the All-Energy Exhibition and Conference, 13-14 May, SEC Glasgow.
Insite’s Eco-range combines materials innovation with a sustainability service where Insite Graphics unmount and disassemble print products for separation and recycling or in some cases re-use. By using fabric printing techniques and materials developed for its Britebox product range amongst others, Insite graphics can now repurpose exhibition graphics into display systems, pop ups and other portable display technologies. James Winzar, MD Insite Graphics, explained the need for sustainable exhibition print, saying “So much event industry print ends up in landfill, and even if we can cut that figure, much of it is still destroyed. It made sense to develop a process whereby we can use quality exhibition graphics again and again, and printing on recyclable fabric with non-toxic inks was the solution.
Fabric Collected and Recycled
We changed from foamex to paper based board and this was recycled
Repurposed and ReUsed
“By taking down exhibition graphics carefully, they can be rolled up and returned to Insite HQ, where we can separate and sort the recyclables from reusables, saving print runs, energy, time and, of course, money.”
Sarah Worwood operation manager at Reed Exhibitions UK, organiser of The All-Energy Exhibition and Conference, explained why Reed had chosen the ECO-Fabtex range for its route-finding signage saying, “Insite’s reuseable and recyclable exhibition graphics were the perfect fit for the All-Energy Exhibition and Conference, and our focus on sustainable energy solutions. Insite’s innovative use of backlit fabric printing provided us with suitably eye-catching and functional signage, technology which also proved popular with our exhibitors.”
