The Eco & Innovation pavilion at BIG+BIH, April 2013

The co-located trade shows of Bangkok International Gift Fair and Bangkok International Houseware Fair draw buyers from around the world, all eager to discover the lifestyle products on display, aimed at export markets.

While the official theme of this season's shows is ASEAN Life & Style, the main theme to emerge from the show floor is a strong green emphasis in both product and production.

In the show's Eco & Innovation Pavilion, Thai exhibitors have the opportunity to showcase eco-friendly products, which in many cases carry an important recycling message. The products show what can be achieved from alternative materials such as recycled paper, coffee grounds, rice husks, inner tubes and nut shells. For the first time, the show’s organisers have created special eco awards for the best environmental-friendly products aimed at international markets.

Outside of this pavilion, exhibitors across the fair are also proud to display creations made from natural and sustainable products.
