Radisson launches meetings and events service
23 May 2019 - by
Radisson Hotel Group has launched Radisson Meetings, its new meetings and events service available across the group’s seven hotel brands.
Radisson Meetings provides a team of meeting and event professionals to provide support and recommendations, as well as on-site, on-demand support during events.
The hotel group has committed to making multimillion dollar investments across its portfolio in new audio-visual technology and improved facilities. Implementation has already been completed in 55 properties across 11 countries throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa and will be progressively rolled out globally across the group’s portfolio by the end of the five-year operating plan.
Radisson Meetings plans to reduce the carbon footprint of events and meetings taking place at Radisson hotels worldwide, at no extra cost to attendees or organisers. To do this, Radisson has partnered with FirstClimate, one of the largest carbon offsetting organisations in the world.
For each meeting, the carbon footprint is calculated and then offset through FirstClimate by supporting projects that combat climate change and have a positive sustainable development contribution in Peru, Kenya, and India or invest in wind energy in Turkey and the USA. Radisson Meetings will also focus on ongoing efforts to minimise food waste and eliminate single-use plastics.
Radisson Rewards for Business, the group’s loyalty programme for event planners, is also an important component of the Radisson Meetings concept. Members can earn points toward rewards for all bookings at all Radisson Hotel Group brands.
