MEETING PACKAGE: Mayfair Hotel to Offset Greenhouse Emissions for Meetings and Incentives

The Mayfair has implemented a new eco-conscious program for groups that will offset greenhouse gas emissions from their meetings and events. "It's Now Easy Being Green" incorporates environmental considerations in order to minimize the negative impact on the environment.

"South Florida certainly uses its fair share of energy and resources for its year-round group business," says James Angel, director of sales, the Mayfair Hotel & Spa. "At the hotel, we are vigilant of our environment as well as our client needs and requests for environmental responsibility and action, which is why we have worked to build in elements in our programs that not only conserve but also give back to groups working on the green crusade."

From June 1 through October 2, 2008, the Mayfair is offering a green package to meeting planners: a charitable contribution equal to the carbon offset of the event to NativeEnergy in the company's name and rooms beginning at $149. A 15-room-per-night minimum is required to qualify, which also includes one complimentary upgrade to a suite.

"We expect resource relocation to become a requirement for meeting planners in the future and look forward to making this program a permanent fixture at the Mayfair by end of year," said Angel.
