The U.S. Green Building Council’s third annual Sustainable Hospitality Summit will be held in Orlando, Florida on September 20th at the LEED Gold, Grand Bohemian Hotel. Convening industry experts will focus on hospitality footprint: resilient design strategies, reducing carbon emissions and waste, curating wellness experiences, crafting healthy communities, and prioritizing human capital.

This year, our attendees will explore the implications of shifting guest expectations around health, wellness, and corporate social responsibility. How is the hospitality industry positively impacting the individual, carefully considering resilience and transitioning to holistic experience?

Our regional experts will discuss:

– Gender inclusion and equality during the Women in Green power breakfast

– Resilient design in the wake of climate risks

– Capturing corporate social responsibility through sustainable storytelling

– Innovative case studies from top sector leaders

Look forward to the announcement of this year’s keynote this summer!

Katarina Tesarova, Vice President of Global Sustainability for Las Vegas Sands Corp., one of the world’s leading and most respected hotel and gaming companies, headlined last year’s summit held at The Dewberry Charleston. Ms. Tesarova highlighted global trends in hospitality, with top companies embracing sustainability, and shared case studies of positive returns on high-performing buildings, responsible operations and maintenance practices, employee engagement and commitment to community.
