Radisson Hotel Group is committed to providing comprehensive green meeting opportunities
Check out Radisson Meetings, the Radisson Hotel Group’s new eco-friendly meetings and events offering that’s available across its seven hotel brands.
Radisson Hotel Group has now launched Radisson Meetings, a new global meetings and events offering available throughout the group’s seven hotel brands.
Radisson Meetings is developed around three core elements for successful events and is designed to be 100% carbon neutral through offsetting initiatives.
The goal is to use the program as a vital part of Radisson’s ambitious five-year plan, making it an important milestone in the company’s efforts to be the market leader in this segment and the first choice for meetings and events.
“Radisson Meetings represents our commitment to deliver a personal, professional and memorable service to our guests, and to respond to changing market trends and expectations,” said Eric De Neef, executive vice president and global chief commercial officer for Radisson Hotel Group.
“We are investing in our meeting venues at our 1,100+ hotels worldwide, in training of our teams, and in technology. A state-of-the-art IT infrastructure and distribution platform are core elements helping us to deliver our brand promise. Finally, all Radisson Meetings are carbon neutral – we are the only hotel group worldwide to automatically offset any carbon footprint at no cost to our customers.”
Built on solid foundations
The foundation of Radisson Meetings consists of three core pillars: personal, professional, and memorable service.
The personal aspect is perhaps the most important. It translates to Radisson offering a team of meetings and events professionals who are trained to take a solution-focused approach to designing solutions for each client’s needs.
Through Radisson Meetings, organizers get a dedicated point of contact to work with during the planning process. This contact provides both support and recommendations, plus on-demand support at the touch of a button during the event.
In addition, Radisson is making a multi-million-dollar investment in new AV tech and better facilities in all its properties.
This investment will help the group deliver on its promise to provide professional and consistent service across its entire portfolio.
Implementation has already been completed in 55 properties across 11 countries in EMEA and will be progressively rolled out globally across the group’s portfolio by the end of the five-year operating plan in 2021.
Not a trace… no carbon footprint
Radisson Hotel Group automatically offsets the carbon footprint of all its meetings and events at its hotels worldwide, at no cost to its attendees or organizers.
To do this, Radisson Hotel Group has teamed up with FirstClimate, one of the world’s largest carbon offsetting organizations.
For each meeting, the carbon footprint is calculated and then offset by FirstClimate. They support projects which combat climate change, contribute to sustainable development in countries including Peru, Kenya, and India or invest in wind energy in Turkey and the USA.
All selected projects are Gold Standard or Verified Carbon Standard certified.
Finally, Radisson Meetings focus on ongoing efforts to minimize food waste and eliminate single-use plastics, a trend currently sweeping the hospitality industry.
