IMHX  Sustainability

Be more sustainable

IMHX promotes eco-friendly logistics, and so naturally leads by example by having the most sustainable event possible. To host a sustainable event, we carry out the following actions:

  • Avoiding single-use plastics: Drinks will be served in reusable glass glasses. The food will also be delivered in very little packaging.
  • Going paperless: IMHX has gone digital. You no longer have to print off your tickets, you can now just use your email confirmation on your phone. As well as digital tickets the show guide has followed suit and moved online.
  • Using an eco-friendly venue: In the last ten years, the NEC has saved 927 million litres of water with the Ureco system.
  • Reducing CO2 emissions: Anyone attending the event has access to a train discount to encourage fewer cars to be on the road.
  • Recycling: Recycling bins are all around the NEC to encourage recycling. 

We want IMHX help inspire sustainable development. 

We focus on:

  • Using our content to support the sustainability of the market the event serves
  • Inspiring our suppliers, exhibitors and other stakeholders to deliver a sustainable event
  • Developing market relevant partnerships 

We also want to ensure we run IMHX in an increasingly environmentally responsible manner

We focus on:

  • Reducing our event’s carbon emissions
  • Creating less waste
  • Considering sustainability credentials of the items sourced for the event

We want to consider how we run our events in a socially responsible manner.

We focus on:

  • Doing business safely and ethically
  • Considering wellbeing and accessibility
  • Creating a positive impact on our host cities
  • Measuring our impacts

Exhibitors: you can do your bit too
