Description

The U.S. Green Building Council’s third annual Sustainable Hospitality Summit will be held in Orlando, Florida on September 20th at the LEED Gold, Grand Bohemian Hotel. Convening industry experts will focus on hospitality footprint: resilient design strategies, reducing carbon emissions and waste, curating wellness experiences, crafting healthy communities, and prioritizing human capital.

This year, our attendees will explore the implications of shifting guest expectations around health, wellness, and corporate social responsibility. How is the hospitality industry positively impacting the individual, carefully considering resilience and transitioning to holistic experience?
