The Jury has awarded the second edition of the Sustainable Booth Award.
The II Sustainable Stand Awards, organized with the collaboration of the Responsible Tourism Institute (RTI), are born from the objective of recognizing and highlighting the efforts of exhibitors to show their alignment with the 2030 agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals that will mark the recovery of the sector. These awards also highlight the work that IFEMA MADRID has been doing for years to improve the impact of its activity on the social and natural environment in which it is located. These efforts allow the promotion of these values to companies and their exhibitors, as well as visitors to the fairs and events held at its venues. As an added value, IFEMA has the ISO 20121 for sustainable events.
Vectalia, Paradores, SEGITTUR, Argentina, Illes Balears, Asturias, Canary Islands and Costa Rica were the winners of this edition. All of them with the common denominator of their environmentally friendly legacy through the use of recyclable materials and 100% renewable energy sources.
The donation of 1,000 trees to visitors to their stand, an interesting action to offset their carbon footprint and especially valued for its didactic significance. The panels explaining the destination of Paradores were also valued, a double exercise of disclosure and transparency. Inclusive actions such as that of Segittur, with the deployment of signage in Braille or the removal of architectural barriers at the stand of the Balearic Islands. In terms of recycling and reuse, Asturias, Canary Islands and Costa Rica have opted for the choice of suitable materials to achieve this task.
