Bett Environmental, Social and Governance initiatives

Bett Environmental, Social and Governance initiatives

Bett & Hyve are committed to redefining sustainability within the event industry and within education. At Bett 2022 and all year long, we use our influence to educate, empower and drive positive change across the sector we work with.

 

Discover below all the initiatives we implemented at the show in 2022.

Going paperless

  • We reduced our onsite printing and collateral, instead we’ll use cloud-based storage solution and iPads
     
  • We encouraged all sponsors to go paperless where possible, including switching from seat-drop collateral to QR codes
     
  • We're no longer offering delegate bags to reduce waste and printing requirements
