Have your Say: Green Destination Standards

So, what exactly should a destination city have in order to be considered a 'green' destination for meetings?
  • Should it have commercial recycling?
  • Must it have minimum amount of hotels providing green guest rooms?
  • Should it have a LEED certified convention centre?
  • A convenient transit link between the convention core and the airport?
Well, now is the time to have your say! Agree, disagree, but at least participate. APEX-ASTM Green Meeting and Event Standards for Destinations give direction to CVB's wanting to be green, help planners communicate the services they expect for their meetings and, at the end of the day, make the cities we call home more livable.

Contact smckinley@meetgreen.com if you would like to receive a copy of the current draft standard. Comment period is open until June 3, 2009.
