Green Meetings Redefined

Sustainable meetings are now a requirement, rather than a luxury, but smart event professionals are integrating other green elements into their agendas to surprise and delight. The experts at The Westin Hapuna Beach Resort suggested some fresh takes on activating the verde in your next event.

Verdant Backdrops

Whether it is a closing reception or the view out the conference room glass doors, staging an event at a venue where a lush tropical forest and blue ocean stretch as far as the eye can see is a great way to get people out of their beige rut. Be sure to schedule time to get out in all that beauty and explore cultural and archaeological wonders. It makes the action items that much more compelling.

Hit the Greens

A bad day on the golf course—well, may not exist. Offering a round for attendees, either competitively or in a fun scramble style can be a wonderful way to soak in all that exotic beauty while enjoying the fresh air and getting to know our co-workers a little better.

Eat Your Greens

One of the highlights of choosing a venue with multiple award-winning restaurants is that there is something for everyone and the catering menu takes advantage of the fresh, local ingredients and creative, talented chefs on-site. Whether it is kale smoothies, farm-to-fork salads or apple cocktails, give your attendees what they want.
