    At Reed Exhibitions we understand that our business processes can have positive and negative social, environmental and economic impact. Our purpose is to organise events for the communities that we serve, that wherever practicable minimizes the negative and maximises the positive longer-term impacts. As part of Reed Exhibitions’ Sustainability Policy, we actively champion sustainability from the initial planning stages to the final execution of SGBW. We strongly believe that everyone in the event, from partners, exhibitors to visitors, has a part to play and we continually engage all industry stakeholders to think and act green together.

    With the event in its 4th edition, the team have ingrained clear commitment and dedication to walking the talk, balancing its footprint against its own desire for growth.

    To find out more sustainable initiatives in the MICE industry, please refer to the MICE 3R toolkit, an initiative of the MICE 3R taskforce comprising the National Environment Agency (NEA), the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and members of the Singapore Association of Conference and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers (SACEOS).

    • Recycled chairs and green walls were used in the seminar areas.


    • “Go Green, Dress Lean”

      - Visitors and exhibitors went without coats and ties so that room temperatures can be set at a sustainable level.

    • Visitors were encouraged to take public transport to and from the venue.

    • “Green Space Award”:

      Celebrates and recognizes exhibitors’efforts in incorporating sustainability into their booth design and construction.


    • MCE Asia and its co-located events were held at Marina Bay Sands, an eco-venue situated in central Singapore and accessible by various modes of transportation.


    • We work with like-minded green partners and vendors with a strong commitment to sustainability, notably Marina Bay Sands (Official Green Venue and Hotel Partner), Cityneon (Official Contractor) and Agility (Official Logistics Provider).

    TIPS: Sustainable Actions for Exhibitors

    • Design your stand to be reusable. This will reduce costs when you next exhibit!

    • Use booth adornments which can be stored and reused.

    • Use our e-scanners to collect visitors’ details instead of collecting printed business cards.

    • Consider e-marketing for your promotional materials.

    • If you are printing materials, will they be made from recycled or sustainable sources?

    • If you have any give-aways, consider if they are useful or can be recycled.

    • Encourage staff and team members to use public transport, when travelling to and from the venue.

    • Consider whether you really need to make event t-shirts for your team. If you do - think about getting them from a company that use sustainable cotton and dyes and keep these for future events.

    TIPS: Sustainable Actions for Visitors

    • Think about your travel choices: Is public transport available?

    • Request for electronic copies of exhibitors’ e-brochures.

    • Bring along your own bag or use our recyclable event bag distributed on-site.

    • Bring your own tumblers since water dispensers are readily accessible onsite.

    • Use the recycling facilities provided onsite.

    • Re-use your cutlery as far as possible.

    • Reuse or recycle any marketing collaterals received at the event.

    • Monitor and measure your company’s impact i.e. energy usage, waste etc.

    • Share & spread Green Awareness with your management, colleagues & clients!
