  • Demonstrate new services and programs.
  • Launch new products.

Encouraging a Sustainable Exhibition

The Australia New Zealand Society of Nephrology recognises that urgent action is needed within the nephrology community to help minimise the impacts of climate change, sustainably manage natural resources, and reduce and manage waste.  Toward this aim, below are some suggestions for companies exhibiting at the ASM to reduce their footprint and minimise environmental harm.

  1. Minimise the amount of promotional material at your stands
    Where material is unavoidable, use material that is produced as sustainably as possible.  
  2. Use reusable structures and exhibition stands  
    The standard exhibition booth is a reusable structure provided by a local exhibition builder.  If building a custom stand, try to utilise the local exhibition services (we recommend ExpoTas) to avoid unnessary carbon emissions; or recycle a stand from a previous year.
  3. Avoid energy intense stands and unnecessary lighting
    Consider the use of power by your stand over the 3 day show.  Where you do need to use lighting, ensure they are LED.
  4. Minimise waste generation
    Ideally remove and dispose all discarded publications and materials at your own cost or pay for the ones left at the venue
  5. Reduce local transport
    The ASM venue is purposely located in a central CBD location.  Walking distance to many accommodation and dining options.  While in Hobart minimise your emissions by walking between your accommodation, dininig venus and the ASM.
