Green Festival Alliance presents the new ‘Green Innovations Zone’ at the Showman’s Show 2012

The Green Festival Alliance will be exhibiting at The Showman’s Show 2012 (17 and 18 October)  in the new  Green Innovations Zone on Avenue B.  The GFA will be bringing together  leading sustainable suppliers in the country to promote their products and services.  The zone will present the latest sustainable solutions and innovations in power generation, toilets, consumables, waste management, structures, water provision and materials.  Visitors to the ‘Green Innovations Zone’ will find companies who think outside the box to develop new ideas, which have already been proven and operational within the industry.

Firefly Solar, one of the funding members, aim to raise awareness about renewable and low carbon power and the many benefits that this can bring to the events industry and will also be showcasing a range of our solar and people-powered products, including theb new, improved Pictor . Firefly will also be holding various competitions with our fun and interactive Kinectrics generators along with the Kinectrics Display System, which will show who generates the most electricity, as well as offering exclusive offers and discounts for visitors to the stand.

The Green Festival Alliance (GFA) brings together promoters and suppliers committed to acting on climate change to identify and speed up the adoption of sustainable practices at festivals through innovation and collective action. The Alliance was formally launched in January 2012 by a steering group of founder members: Julie’s Bicycle (Steering group secretariat), 
A Greener Festival, 
Festival Republic, 
Shambala Festival  (Steering group chair), 
the Association of Independent Festivals and 
Firefly Solar.  The GFA’s Powerful Thinking Campaign brings festival promoters, production managers and power suppliers together to better understand power use at festivals, increase efficiencies and explore new technologies.  Newbury Showground, Berkshire
