Please participate in exhibition stand research/a special request from the University of Pretoria
The IFES Sustainability Committee is committed to maintain positive strengths and develop a constructive program for our members. We aim to share amazing projects, clever solutions, best practices with our members and partners. Today we are coming back to you with a special request from the University of Pretoria.
The Event Greening Forum (EGF) is a non-profit organization in South Africa, dedicated to promoting sustainable event practices. As part of this objective, it has contracted a South African university (the University of Pretoria) to research the use, re-use and recycling practices of custom-built wood-based exhibition stands in South Africa and abroad.
Please participate in this research by completing a 5 minute survey. The more respondents there are, the more meaningful the findings will be. The study's report will be shared with all respondents.
