BALI announces landscape pavilion at Ecobuild 2011

BALI has announced plans to host a Landscape Pavilion at next year's Ecobuild exhibtion, IBE, to be held at ExCel in London from 1-3 March 2011.

The aim of the pavilion is to ‘raise awareness of landscape construction, design and products as a solution to increasing environmental instability.’

BALI has space for ten exhibitors in the pavilion and can offer stands at 4, 6 or 9sqm. Discounts are being offered to BALI members wishing to exhibit in the pavilion.

The pavilion will include a landscaping feature and BALI are currently in discussions with a designer who will create a feature looking at sustainability in landscaping and how best to promote landscaping.

Ideas being discussed include:  living roofs and green wells, water harvesting, greening urban spaces, and the use of recycled materials.onway, who is co-ordinating the pavilion, said:  "BALI had a pavilion at last year's Ecobuild, however this year we would like to involve a larger amount of me BALI’s communication officer Kelly Cmbers, by exhibiting in unison with our members.

"A pavilion gives the exhibitors increased exposure at the show and the pavilion becomes a fantastic place to network."

She added:  "We hope exhibiting members will want to contribute, with both materials and ideas, to the landscape feature which is currently in the planning stages."

The Ecobuild exhibition started five years ago and has grown from a show with 50 exhibitors and 1,000 visitors, to one with more than 1,000 exhibitors and upwards of 40,000 visitors.

Next year’s show is set to be even bigger as the event moves to London’s ExCel centre.
