During the workshop, managing director Philippe Bacha will draw on Solarco Equipment’s experience of designing professional kitchens to offer suggestions for best practices to achieve a greener operation.
Commenting on the event, Bacha said: “Solarco Equipments has always worked towards offering sustainable solutions to its clients. The Sustainability Summit offers an incredible opportunity to share our beliefs and expertise with the broadest list of the most prominent professionals in the country. We are extremely proud to be chosen to lead the workshop specifically dedicated to discussing sustainability in the F&B operations.”
More than 100 delegates gathered for Hotelier Middle East’s inaugural Sustainability Summit on May 20 at The Ritz-Carlton Dubai.
Attended by general managers, F&B directors, housekeepers, and hotel engineers, the event comprised panel discussions, presentations, workshops, and case studies on sustainable practices in hotels.
A recurring theme during the various panel discussions throughout the day was the importance of communication and training staff to adopt green practices within their departments.
Extending that knowledge to hotel guests was also important, and panellists suggested categorising priorities, coming up with a short term and long term plan and convincing guests that sustainability can be glamorous.
Owner and managing director Philippe Bacha has a lot to celebrate with new showrooms and new clients
