They offer a range of eco-friendly products and services, such as recycled materials for booth construction, energy-efficient lighting solutions, eco-friendly promotional products, and more.
Here are some tips and advice for exhibiting sustainably at Vinehall:
Planning ahead is essential when exhibiting sustainably. You need to think about how you will transport your products and materials, how you will construct your booth, and how you will dispose of waste. Consider using eco-friendly materials. Also, consider using LED lighting or natural light to minimize energy consumption.
REUSABLE MATERIALS SYSTEMS
When selecting products to exhibit, choose sustainable products made from renewable or recycled materials. If possible, select products that are reusable or have a longer lifespan. Vinehall is committed to sustainability not just in its own operations, but also in the services they offer to its clients.
One example of this is their use of the BeMatrix frame system, which they offer to their clients for use in their exhibition booths. BeMatrix is a modular frame system made from lightweight, reusable aluminium that can be easily assembled and disassembled without the need for tools or specialized equipment. The system allows for a wide range of customizations, including using sustainable materials and graphics, making it an ideal solution for exhibitors looking to reduce their environmental impact while still creating a visually impressive and engaging booth.
Furthermore, the beMatrix frame system is the strongest, light-weight, and only toolless system in the market. This can provide many advantages:
- Fast build-up and assembling
- Clean design look
- Long-life cycle and endless reusability
- 100% recyclable
Vinehall frame system meets all the needs of today’s stand and event builder.
- It combines the modular aspect with a custom-built look.
- Great ROI thanks to a fast build-up and endless reusability. You save on material and manpower.
- Modular and multi-purpose: The same frame is suitable for both panels and textiles.
- The most sustainable system on the market: limited use of infills, endlessly reusable and modular frames, lightweight system, reduced chrome plating or coating. Lightweight – the frames are lightweight, and less fuel is used during transport. Reusable – we can use the frames up to 200 times, in all kinds of configurations. This contributes to less environmental impact. Modular – With beMatrix you can enjoy a unique 360° approach: it is the only system to not only build walls but also ceilings & floors. This makes the frames more profitable and reusable.
The beMatrix is the only modular system in the market that is invisible. beMatrix has the look and design of a traditional building while having the modularity and possibilities of a system. By combining aluminium frames with panels or textiles in a clever way, beMatrix bridges the gap between traditional wood construction and prefabrication. The never-ending product development makes sure the system can cope with almost every design. An important development for the stand-building world is the evolution to real seamless solutions. As we fix our panels, textiles, or alternative infills onto our frames and not in between structures, our structure is hardly visible, leaving more space for graphics and giving it a clean design look. As the structure is not seen, damages or scratches do not shorten the life cycle of the system.
The beMatrix system is not only fast and easy to use, but it also has a long life cycle and is endlessly reusable. By constantly re-using the same frames, your investment pays back in no time. Even after the smallest adjustment or expansion of an existing stand, none of the used materials is wasted. Our frame system and its modularity are not subject to the whims of fashion.
The fast building and lightweight & ergonomic system make it possible to do more with fewer personnel and less transportation of materials. Furthermore, we don’t use any acids that could pollute the environment to produce our aluminium frames. Additionally, the use of harmful substances like paint and glue is prevented as much as possible by using textiles or panels with our frames. And since our aluminium frames are 100% recyclable even after a long life cycle, the waste is reduced to an absolute minimum.
beMatrix obtained a first certificate from the UN Climate Change. They achieved a gold, silver, and bronze level in the 3 domains: measure, reduce, and contribute.
By offering the BeMatrix frame system to their clients, Vinehall is not only helping to reduce the environmental impact of exhibitions but also providing a sustainable and innovative solution for their clients.
In conclusion, Vinehall Displays’ modular stand system is designed to be 100% reusable from show to show. This means that the materials used to construct your booth can be repurposed and used again, reducing waste and saving resources. Choose this system to reduce your environmental impact and save on costs over time.
