Better Stands

At ProPak Indonesia we are committed to delivering a sustainable event for both exhibitors and attendees.

Disposable, single-use stands account for around 80% of the total waste from our event, which is why we are launching the Better Stands Programme.

Better Stands is about moving away from the use of disposable stands to not only vastly reduce waste, but also improve the ease, safety and sustainability of the exhibitor experience at our events.

We believe that sustainable, reusable stand options offer a better way forward for the events industry. As an exhibitor you can work with your Exhibitor Appointed Contractor to design a stand that fits this criteria.

If you’re unsure of where to start, Consult our official contractors for help when choosing a reusable stand.

As Part of Our Commitment, we are focusing on:



Embed sustainability into our brand by 2025 to inspire our sector to be more sustainable, promoting the achievement of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals:

  • Using our content to support the sustainability of the market the event serves
  • Inspiring our suppliers, exhibitors, and other stakeholders to deliver asustainable event
  • Developing market relevant partnerships
