This year’s Green Travel Summit willbe mentored by CNN’s Olivia Zaleski, sustainable experts David Refkin & Auden Schendler, and EPA’s Harry Lewis.
The 2009 forum will be focused on sustainability in business – exploring green travel strategies and their impact on business travel and corporate meetings.
I have read some negative feedbaks on the fact that this was driven by business thoughts but we at Greenty always believe that business needs to be associated to green travel – and green travel needs to involve business decision makers – or green travel will go nowhere or end up as a tiny niche market – and make few or no difference at the end.
So we welcome this initiative … helping corportations understand that going for green travel can have a positive ROI is good and is the way forward to help green travevel become more than just a niche of the leisure travel market.
The Green Travel Summit will be held at the Fairmont, Newport Beach, California, March 23-24, 2009.
