Kudos to Plaza Athénée Bangkok, A Royal Méridien Hotel on remaining the champion of “Green Meetings”.  The hotel has just celebrated the achievement of its 2nd year with ISO 20121 international Event Sustainability Management System certification for which it was recently re-audited.

The prestigious certification, the only one in the world so far issued to a hotel, is designed to help events organisations improve their sustainability while also enhancing the guest experience.

The hotel’s green management efforts since 2013 have been yielding encouraging results, with consumption of electricity had been cut by 9.4%, water by 5.03%, and paper by 4.9% year-on-year. Carbon footprint profiling revealed a 47.05% lower in printer ink and a 25.0% lower in unnamed (15)plastic bottle consumption. Moreover, our customers are showing increasing empathy with the cause with seven Green Meeting Packages being booked for meetings, conferences and other events year-to-date.

A Sustainability Event Management System Plan specific to the hotel’s MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, Exhibitions) business invites customers to contribute to environment, economic and social sustainability while still enjoying successful events and delightful experiences.

Plaza Athénée Bangkok, A Royal Méridien Hotel offers you one of the best ways to show that you are on the right wavelength with respect to the welfare of the world with no convenience or utility is sacrificed.

You can choose not to have plastic water bottles and instead you get more decorative glass decanters and you can do away with the frills and create a contemporary nature-centered aesthetic. Other features of the hotel’s Green Meeting Package range from tables and chairs without linen to setting up stationery and water stations for consumption as-needed, air conditioning at 25 C and avoiding paper presentations. There are benefits when break times come around, too, with excellent home-grown Thai coffee used instead of imports and snacks created from locally sourced produce that are also healthy but still delicious in a way that’s clean and pure.

A wide range of creative “Eco friendly coffee break” and “Eco friendly lunch” menus, where we support the local community by purchasing their products/ingredients, are available for you to choose.

Plaza Athenee Bangkok, A Royal Meridien Hotel tailors events to every need with 28 function rooms. The 1,020 square metre Athénée Crystal Hall is an ideal for large functions and conference sessions for up to 1,000. The elegant pillarless Grand Hall accommodates 600 banquet-style, offering natural light streaming through towering eight-meter high bay windows. For creative impact, the unique “Star 29″ on the top floor, with its polished wooden floors and floor-to-ceiling windows is ideal for product launches or exclusive receptions. An additional 20 innovative boardrooms and flexible meeting spaces are perfect for small to medium meetings and breakout sessions.
