Re-usable furniture replaces traditional exhibition stand for Allied Barton

: 05 June, 2009  (Company News)
Security personnel providers show commitment to sustainability by using standard furniture for forthcoming exhibition to be donated to police athletic league after the event
AlliedBarton Security Services, the Conshohocken-based national provider of highly trained security personnel, will take a customized approach to sustainability and trade show displays at the BOMA International Conference (Building Owners and Managers Association) that will benefit the Philadelphia Police Athletic League.

Michael Coleman, AlliedBarton's Vice President of Commercial Real Estate, said the security company will maintain its corporate commitment to sustainability by "going green" at the BOMA International Conference at the Pennsylvania Convention Centre, June 28-30. Instead of the usual corporate display, the security industry leader is buying furniture to create seating areas within its booth space.

"Instead of a traditional trade show booth, we will purchase furniture, which we will use in our exhibit space and donate the furniture to the Philadelphia Police Athletic League after the show," Coleman said. "By utilizing only the graphics from our traditional trade show booth, we are drastically reducing the shipping, labor and costs normally associated with a large trade show booth. We are proud to support BOMA's and our own sustainability initiatives with this effort. This is our fourth consecutive BOMA show where we've been able to support a local organization, such as PAL, with a large furniture donation."

AlliedBarton's donation will include chairs, couches, tables and a carpet.

"The Police Athletic League of Philadelphia is extremely grateful to AlliedBarton Security Services for their generous donation of numerous items of furniture and carpeting from the display booth at the BOMA Conference," said Capt Michael Weaver, Commanding Officer of PAL. "The chairs, couches and tables will be placed at one of our PAL Centers for the use of our PAL youngsters and staff. AlliedBarton's unique contribution is a shining example of the public-private partnership between PAL and the corporate community in the Philadelphia area."

AlliedBarton's sustainable trade show efforts go beyond the elimination of the traditional trade show booth and the furniture donation. The security industry leader is supporting BOMA's paperless show by taking little to no literature and emailing electronic versions of the marketing pieces to show attendees visiting the booth.
