Saving The Environment With Green Tips From Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel, Dubai

April 29, 2014 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

Management from the Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel Dubai will take the opportunity to spread the word about its green practices at the Arabian Travel Market in Dubai between May 5 and 8.

GMA Green Tip brochure will be distributed to contacts in the travel trade and corporate businesses at the show, graphically displaying how everyone can make a contribution to saving the planet in their daily working and home lives.

According to General Manager of the Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel, Scott Butcher, going green for businesses is no longer a public relations exercise, but a serious commitment to sustainability that should be taken by both corporations and individuals.

“Hotels such as the Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel can play an important role in transmitting this message – to guests, to staff, to corporate and sales contacts, and even to schools and youth groups, to stress the importance of changing habits to change the future of the world,” he said.

“With potentially 20,000 exhibitors, travel trade and media visitors at Arabian Travel Market, we aim to take time out from our sales and marketing to transmit this message to all our contacts, giving them our Green Tips brochure to take away and hopefully pass on.”
