Canal Central Hotel Business Bay

Meetings, events and exhibitions consume plenty of natural resources and potentially represent a negative influence on the environment. As a result, event organisers are focusing on hosting ‘green meetings’ that include conferences, workshops, seminars and other gatherings that are planned and held in a sustainable way. The fundamental conditions for organising such ‘meetings’ precisely revolve around reducing waste, saving energy, and cutting down on water usage- all that incorporates environmental concerns and minimizes negative impacts on nature.

A unification of many factors makes a MICE venue sustainable in all possible aspects. Carbon footprint tops the list among all. By using renewable energy sources, smart showers, organic food and natural resources consciously, the hotels are rolling out a plethora of green initiatives that are easy to implement and budget-friendly.

We have shortlisted some of the best eco-friendly conference hotels that you can consider for hosting a green meeting in the most sustainable way:

Wartegg Castle, Switzerland

Wartegg Castle is the first Swiss Historic Hotel in Eastern Switzerland which hails as a perfect combination of culture, tradition and modern architecture. Impressive castle and expansive grounds provide an inspiring atmosphere for MICE event organisers.

Three seminar rooms each with an area of up to 60 sq m and a large concert hall of area 110 sq m make perfect venues for meetings, workshops, conferences or any other event of large scale. Being inspired by nature and its bounty, Wartegg Castle’s seminar rooms are furnished with natural materials and its entire functioning is ecologically oriented. From energy production, choice of suppliers and products, cultivation of its garden, preparation of meals in the kitchen and above all care of guests and employees, sustainability plays the pivotal role in multiple aspects.

Naturresort Schindelbruch, Germany

Sustainability can sometimes be a big word or a very simple philosophy and Naturresort Schindelbruch exemplifies these two ideas in varied ways.
