LANGHAM HOSPITALITY GROUP LAUNCHES CONNECT CONFERENCES
NEW PROGRAM ALLOWS MEETING, EVENT AND GROUP TRAVEL PLANNERS THE OPTION OF SELECTING SUSTAINABLE OPTIONS AT LANGHAM PROPERTIES WORLDWIDE

25 September 2013

Langham Hospitality Group (LHG) is pleased to announce the launch of CONNECT Conferences, a new program that allows meeting, event and group travel planners the option to select sustainable options when planning any meeting, event or group booking at any LHG property around the world. Each of these options was selected specifically to offset the potential environmental or societal impact of any meeting or event.

The menu of options available to meeting and group travel planners through CONNECT Conferences are:

  Participation in the "Guest Of The Earth" programme, which promotes reusing linen where possible to reduce water and energy consumption.
  Opting to use fair-trade products as welcome amenities and for use in guestroom mini-bars.
  Selecting locally-grown and seasonal food products on banquet and catering menus to reduce the carbon emissions caused by transportation.
  Requesting organic and vegetarian banquet menus which minimize pollution and the use of natural resources.
  Opting for filtered water to reduce bottled wastage.
  The opportunity to incorporate tailor-made activities into a schedule of activities which give back to the local community in which the hotel is located
  The availability of reusable items such as whiteboards, electronic signage, linen, dining ware and cutlery to minimize unnecessary waste
  The option of place recycling bins in meeting rooms to engage attendees and create awareness for sustainability. Waste management and recycling services are automatically implemented at all hotels – this option just provides extra visibility to create awareness among attendees.
  The opportunity to select energy efficient options, such as setting the air conditioner to a moderate temperature and maximizing the use of natural light in meeting rooms
  An online Carbon Emission and Carbon Saving Calculator, enables planners to find out the real environmental cost of an event. Planners can then select sustainable offerings that offset this.
