Second life for Antalis exhibition stand

Print Solutions


Antalis has donated part of its exhibition stand to a school for students with special educational needs (SEN) in Leicestershire, close to the company’s UK headquarters. 

 

The company creates its exhibition stands with future use and recyclability in mind. Made from sustainable and recyclable materials from the Antalis Visual Communications’ product portfolio, the stand, in the form of a market stall complete with striped awning, formed part of a larger exhibition stand at the 2023 Responsible Packaging Expo in London.

 

The ‘market stall’ has been donated to Maplewell Hall School in Woodhouse Eaves, Leicestershire, which specialises in preparing SEN students for adulthood. The donation was facilitated by Coalville Can, a Community Benefit Society that provides spaces, support and opportunities to the local community. The market stall is housed in additional learning space provided to the school by Coalville Can.

 

Following its delivery, the reassembly of the stall formed part of a problem solving exercise for students. Now fully reassembled it is being used by students as part of their young enterprise studies in which they are learning how to set up and run a business, as well as allowing them to visualise a physical store and house their crafts, designs and business ideas.

 

Marketing executive at Antalis, Liz Fletcher, commented: ‘We design our exhibition stands to be as sustainable as possible, which includes finding opportunities to reuse them once their life as an exhibition stand ends. We are delighted that our market stall has been put to such good use thanks to Coalville Can and the students at Maplewell Hall School.’
