Special Interest: Ethical Style by Nordstil

More and more consumers want to know how products are made. As a result of this rethinking, the subject of sustainability is also becoming increasingly important for many companies. Nordstil has been picking up on this megatrend with "Ethical Style by Nordstil" as a trading centre for sustainably produced consumer goods.

Ethical Style Spots on the occasion of Nordstil Summer 2024

Nordstil Ethical Style

The Ethical Style Spots show how exhibiting companies integrate the topic of sustainability into their product range. Both exhibitors and visitors receive valuable inspiration for the point of sale. At the same time, they encourage the transfer of knowledge and open up new business contacts for visitors.

‘Each of our consumer goods fairs has its own focus on sustainability. Ethical Style helps to make these more visible. Where, if not at trade fairs, can so many companies present their sustainable products to an international audience at the same time?’
