Sustainability at BEVA Congress

We're all well aware of the pressing environmental challenges our planet faces, from global warming to pollution and deforestation. Now more than ever, there's a critical focus on the 'exhibition' and 'veterinary' sectors to minimise their impact. At BEVA, we're committed to making our organisation and events more sustainable.

What we're doing

Here are just some of the steps we've taken to make BEVA Congress a sustainable event... 

  1. Paperless registration. This year, we have introduced a fully paperless registration process, and our digitised event app further cuts down on paper usage.

  2. Recycled lanyards. Our lanyards are made from recycled PET plastic, helping reduce plastic waste.

  3. Digital delegate bags. Everything you need for BEVA Congress is on the event app which means we no longer need delegate bags and all the paper and materials that are inside them.

  4. Digital handbook. We no longer print the handbook for BEVA Congress and instead provide delegates with a digital version via the app and an email download. 

  5. Biodegradable products. We utilise biodegradable products, such as fully biodegradable coffee cups.

  6. Reusable cutlery. We provide hot lunches with reusable cutlery instead of packed lunches, significantly reducing packaging waste.

  7. Re-Use initiatives. We re-use items, components, and materials wherever possible, including annual dinner décor, event signage, and constructions within the exhibition hall.

Carefully selected venues

The venue for BEVA Congress, the ACC in Liverpool, is certified as a carbon-neutral campus and aims to achieve carbon zero by 2030, effectively reducing emissions and the need for offsetting.

Promoting eco-friendly exhibitors

We actively encourage our exhibitors to be considerate of the environment when planning their stands. We encourage them to consider

  • using displays that can be reused and repurposed for future events

  • building their stands from recyclable materials 

  • using LED lighting and other energy-efficient presentations and experiences

  • transitioning to a paperless stand and utilising digital alternatives like tablets 

  • promoting how they've designed their stand with the environment in mind
