Power of One ® at Spring Fair 

It starts with us 

We’ve made it easy for everyone to contribute to the Power of One®, through these onsite initiatives:


Recycle your badge: All badge holders are made of paper and at all entrances, you’ll find recycling bins to recycle your badge.


Goodbye plastics: Keep a lookout for our refillable water stations located around the show. Top up your water bottles on the go and reduce the amount of plastic bought. 

Showcasing sustainability 

Find sustainably made and eco-conscious products throughout Spring Fair! Our Pitch Live competitions, New Product Showcase and Gift of the Year all reward, recognise and highlight exhibitors that are conscious about the impact their products make on the world.
