LAS VEGAS—ARIA Resort & Casino, LEED Gold and Green Key certified, as well as a TripAdvisor GreenLeader at the Platinum level, will be the site of this fall’s second annual Lodging Green & Sustainability Conference & Expo in Las Vegas. The LODGING Magazine event, with the support of EcoGreen Energy Solutions, will take place October 28 to 30.
“This year we anticipate doubling the size of our event in both attendance and exhibit area,” says LODGING magazine Publisher Bill Corsini, who will once again host this annual event. “While still relatively small in only our second year, the conference will again attract the best and the brightest among sustainability experts and professionals in the hotel space. We at LODGING Media are extremely excited by how well the conference was received by all participants last year, and everyone agrees the anticipation for this year is off the charts.”
The three-day conference and expo will kick off on Tuesday, October 28 with a tour of ARIA, part of the CityCenter complex, the world’s largest environmentally sustainable, mixed-use new construction development to achieve LEED certification. The tour will be followed by a two-hour optional Master Class on “Waste Management Innovations.” Also on the schedule the first day of the event: a keynote address and welcome reception in the exhibit hall.
