The Showman’s Show introduced a new category within their stand awards – The Green Supplier and Innovation Award back in 2015. The Show is keen to highlight suppliers who are making a special effort toward environmentally sustainable practices, products and services.
Having noticed an increase in the number of exhibitors moving toward more sustainable solutions and they believe it is time to recognise this trend. All exhibitors were offered the chance to enter into the Green Supplier and Innovation Award, in partnership with Powerful Thinking, the UK's Festival industry think-do tank on environmental practice.
The entries are judged by event sustainability champion, Chris Johnson of Powerful Thinking and Operations Director at Shambala Festival, who also set the criteria. The winner was announced at this year’s Showman’s Show on Wednesday 18th October and the 2017 results are:
'Impressive commitment and understanding of sustainability, and demonstrated company-wide commitment. They have made significant investments in a variety of innovative equipment.'
