Event Sponsorship roundup: Hotelier's Sustainability Summit | - 2014

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.
