Celebrate Earth Day every day!
LEESBURG, Va., April 22, 2015 – The National Conference Center, one of the largest meeting and training facilities in the nation located within close proximity to Washington Dulles International Airport and just outside of Washington, D.C., holds multiple green industry certifications and awards including Green Seal GS-33 Silver and Virginia Green Certified; Winner of the Loudoun County Green Business Challenge, among others. The conference center uses green practices throughout all areas and aspects—not easy to do when you’re regularly accommodating very large numbers of guests!
Meeting planners should thoughtfully consider green locations when booking meetings and training sessions. Here are some tips, implemented at The National Conference Center, to look for in keeping meetings green:
“Because we’re on such a beautiful 65 acre campus, we’re reminded of the importance of protecting the environment daily,” said Geoff Lawson, vice president and general manager of The National Conference Center and West Belmont Place. “We are constantly adding to and retooling our environmental program.” The property has a fun and unique QR code tour with stops throughout the site and explanation on ways in which The National is protecting the environment.
