Better Stands

At Cityscape Global, we are constantly working to raise the level of awareness around sustainability and improve our own event sustainability practices. This involves;

  • Education
  • Measurement
  • The development of sustainable standards

Running a sustainable event is our key priority, and to reduce the environmental impact of our events, we formed the Better Stands programme, to help encourage and implement sustainable exhibition stands. We invite you to join us on this journey towards delivering the best exhibition experience to our customers, lowering stand waste and costs, whilst simultaneously having a positive impact on the wider world.


Better quality. Better safety. Better time efficiency. Better sustainability.

The stand structure must be prefabricated and ready to assemble onsite.


Final adjustments to prefabricated pieces for fitting purposes are allowed.
