The Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO) contracted ESN to produce branded exhibition material for its Cohesion 30 exhibition in the Berlaymont building during the annual Open Day for the general public. ESN also managed the exhibition’s logistics, including set-up and dismantling, and provided the furnishings.
All material was sourced with sustainability in mind. Lighting and screens for the event used low-power LED technology, while the carpet contained 97 % recycled material and would go on to be recycled again at end of life. Furniture and free-standing panels were made from strong corrugated cardboard responsibly sourced and manufactured in Europe.
Branded giveaways, such as biodegradable bookmarks containing seeds, and dynamo torches, were also given to participants.
Furthermore, ESN displayed the exhibition’s panels later that year in the SQUARE Meeting Centre and at DG REGIO’s premises in Brussels, and then at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France.
