Facility managers responsible for tradeshow event planning have a lot of responsibility. The tradeshow organization is depending on you to provide first-class service at the venue, including helping them keep waste managed throughout the event.
While you may spend a lot of time thinking about covering the basics such as load and unload access, floorplan layouts, support staff, and WiFi access, you also need to spend time thinking about how you’re going to handle the waste.
Tradeshow Event Planning for Pre-Show Waste
The set-up function for any tradeshow produces a significant amount of waste. The venue space needs to be reconfigured for the specific tradeshow, stages or platforms need to be assembled, and booths need to be set up.
Make sure you are thinking about how to support the facility staff, event set-up crew, and tradeshow exhibitors with easy access waste disposal sites. This will make it much easier and faster to complete the set-up function.
Where to Take the Waste Build-up?
Before the tradeshow actually begins, your team needs to be able to dispose of the collection of pre-show waste. Otherwise, waste will build up during the show. And it won’t slow down when hundreds or thousands of people descend on the venue.
We recommend that facility managers rent a roll-off dumpster to contain the large volume of waste produced. Your facility team will have a centralized access point to remove waste from the venue during the set-up function and during the actual tradeshow to keep waste managed throughout the duration of the event.
How to Remove the Waste After the Tradeshow
Once the tradeshow is over, you can keep the process going of having your facility team remove waste to the centralized roll-off dumpster.
Additional staff members that help with the teardown function will also have a location to remove waste from the stages, platforms, and booths that were assembled for the tradeshow.
