Just in time for Earth Day, the Green Meetings Industry Council (GMIC) has launched the Green Meetings Portal. Designed as a one-stop source on green meetings practice, policy and technology, the Portal offers a wealth of resources for planners, venues, hotels and destinations to get a better idea of how to make meetings and events sustainable.
"There may be dozens or hundreds of conferences around the world that touch on the process of greening meetings, or reducing the environmental footprint of the buildings and services that make meetings possible," said The Conference Publishers President and CEO Mitchell Beer, CMM. "The Green Meetings Portal will give the meetings industry a single window on the green strategies that will help it survive and thrive."
Visitors to the Green Meetings Portal can catch up on the latest news or browse articles by topic. Topic areas include case studies, green destinations, green food and beverage, and corporate social responsibility.
Created in partnership with Conference Publishers, the developers of the Portal expect to consolidate content from at least a dozen conferences in its first six months of operation. The existing content was drawn from GMIC's annual meeting, the 2009 Greening the Hospitality Industry Conference held February in Pittsburgh.
