Strict ban on plastic in Bengaluru

Plastic ban

Strict ban on plastics and penalty impose at the BIEC in Bengaluru.

Taking note of the huge amount of plastic generated in Bengaluru resulting in great environmental damage and health hazard, the forest, ecology and environment secretariat of the government of Karnataka has issued a notification in March, banning illegal flexes, banners and hoardings among other plastic items.

Therefore flex/plastic banners or branding, as well as disposable plastic items (bags, cups, etc.), are now strictly banned in Bengaluru and will not be allowed at the BIEC during the shows.

In cases of non-compliance a penalty will be imposed.

Please consider this new regulation in your preparations of the show, and inform your stand builders and onsite staff.
