Low carbon and environmental exhibition to launch in Bristol

The Low Carbon South West association has launched a new trade show in Bristol to showcase the low carbon and environmental industries.
 
The 2011 Environmental Trade Show UK (ETS UK) will be held at the University of the West of England (UWE) on 13 October and is expected to attract 250 exhibitors. Spokesperson Amy Robinson told EN the event is targeted at any business with a need to improve its carbon footprint and be more sustainable.
 
“We’re not limited to the low carbon sector; we’re trying to build a low carbon economy,” she said. “The visitors could be anyone that recognises their need to be leaner and more low carbon.”
 
The event will include a technology demonstration area and a number of themed zones such as sustainable transport, international trade and renewable energy.
 
Robinson said the high concentration of industry in the South West providing low carbon technologies and services made Bristol the best location. Although the association expects a high number of international attendees and exhibitors, it also wants to give smaller businesses in the region the opportunity to demonstrate their wares.
 
“There are other shows in London and Birmingham but we wanted to have a show that was in thecentre of where things were happening and that is for our region, in our region, but with a wider focus,” Robinson continued.
 
ETS UK is being organised by not-for-profit association, Low Carbon South West, which was created a year ago following the merger of the business-oriented Bristol Environment Technology and Services association and the Low Carbon South West project initiated at Bath University.
 
“This event follows on from a national programme of events we have already done and feedback from our exhibitors and visitors,” Robinson said.
 
As well as the core exhibition, ETS UK will feature a conference programme specifically targeted at senior-level executives working within companies that need to lower their carbon footprint.
 
“ETS UK is of vital importance to the UK, especially since the Coalition Government has now agreed to legally binding carbon emissions cuts [to 80 per cent by 2050],” Low Carbon South West chairman Alan Bailey said.
 
“This trade show will enable the UK to remain a leading provider of low carbon goods and services worldwide. The trade show and conference will become the place to do green business and I am sure it will be a leading annual event for the business calendar.”

A new ISO consultancy group aimed at helping the events industry with sustainability, health and safety and environmental guidelines launched earlier this year.
