Carbon Offsetting for conferences, meetings & events

Is corporate responsibility at the heart of your business?
Do your bit when it comes to green meetings and minimise your impact on our world from as little as 14p per day delegate.

QHotels are delighted to give you the opportunity to take part in a carbon offsetting initiative with your conferences, meetings and events. This involves a small contribution per delegate towards the initiative as follows:
 
Day Delegate - 14p
 
24hr Delegate - 40p
 
What is carbon offsetting?
 
Your conference can impact the environment simply by using the air conditioning during your event or even just by using electricity while you are at the hotel. Carbon offsetting balances the carbon emissions produced by an activity with equivalent reductions in carbon emissions elsewhere. These reductions are achieved through investment in renewable energy, energy efficiency or reforestation projects in the developing world, that would not have been possible without the finance generated by the sale of carbon offset credits.
 
Where does the contribution go?
 
We have teamed up with Carbon Clear (find out more about Carbon Clear HERE), a world-leader in carbon management. Carbon Clear then use the contribution to put towards projects that have a positive impact on the environment.
 
What initiative will you be contributing towards?
 
All contributions made through QHotels will go towards the Kibale National Park Reforestation in Uganda. The project contributes to climate change mitigation by sequestering greenhouse gases in existing forest sinks and increasing natural tree cover, through the planting of indigenous trees species and assisted natural regeneration of existing forest.
 
How do you take part?
 
We have added a tick box on to our online enquiry form, so if you wish to take part in this fantastic cause, simply tick the box upon initial enquiry. We will then issue your proposal with the total contribution highlighted separately on the final invoice. Taking part in the scheme allows you to negate carbon emissions produced by your delegates when travelling to a conference, meeting or event at QHotels as well as during their stay with us.

Conference Predictions - 6 Month Review – June 2014

26/06/2014

Claire Rowland, Director of Marketing at QHotels reviews predictions from January and shares her thoughts on conference trends for the next 6 months.

"2014 has been named as the year for recovery for the events & conference industry and we're definitely seeing its affect in our business as enquiries continue to rise and briefs become more tailored with increased spend.

Quality and service are still king but more companies are looking for an event with a difference within faster and short lead booking cycles, reflecting the need for a strong ROI in quality and service.
