GULF SHORES, Ala.—It is with great honor that the publishers and editors of ConventionSouth, the national multimedia resource for planning events that are held within the South, present Daytona Beach Resort with a Green Meetings Approved By ConventionSouth certification.
ConventionSouth Associate Publisher Marlane Bundock. “Daytona Beach Resort has proved worthy of receiving this certification based on the results of an in-depth questionnaire, which revealed a true dedication to conservation and protecting the environment through various eco-friendly services and the ability to assist meeting planners with their green meetings.”
Meeting sites selected to receive this certification are given a Green Meetings Approved by ConventionSouth seal that distinguishes them as a green meetings provider. Meeting planners can feel confident that Green Meetings Approved by ConventionSouth cities, hotels and facilities conserve energy and fuel, reduce product use, reuse products, recycle products and use local products when available. And, Green Meetings Approved by ConventionSouth cities, hotels and facilities can assist groups to reduce their carbon footprint on the destination while in town for the meeting.
“Being a green meetings provider doesn’t have to be complicated,” Bundock said. “Offering recycle bins for attendees, turning off power in meeting rooms when they’re not in use and providing beverages in pitchers rather than in cans or bottles are just some of the simple ways that meeting sites can be Green Meetings Approved by ConventionSouth. Much of the time,” she said. “It’s the little things that count.”
Celebrating 30 years as a leading meeting planning resource, ConventionSouth magazine is based in Gulf Shores, Ala., and is distributed to more than 18,000 meeting professionals located across the country who book meetings held within the South, according to Bundock.
