JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa is offering an innovative opportunity for its customers booking group meetings to address climate change and improve the environment. The resort will contribute funds on behalf of its customers to protect the critically endangered Brazilian Amazonas rainforest for meetings booked between now and December 31, 2009.
For qualified green meetings/stays booked during select dates, JW Marriott Las Vegas will make a cash contribution equal to five percent of the total cost of the group’s guest rooms. Donations will be made in the name of the group as part of Marriott International’s ongoing rainforest protection plan. This program will be available for meetings of 10 sleeping rooms or more booked directly with the resort’s sales department at 702-869-7031 or visit www.jwlasvegasresort.com . All meetings must take place between now and December 31, 2011.
“More and more, groups want to be ‘green’,” said Carmen Rubino, director of sales and marketing. “By joining us in our effort to protect endangered rainforest and host green meetings, they will be helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that impact our climate. Each year, rainforest destruction causes more carbon emissions than all of the world’s cars, trains, SUVs and trucks combined.”
JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa works closely with clients who want to design an eco-friendly green meeting and/or event using environmentally-friendly products and services. Examples include recycle bins in the meeting room, decorating with organic flowers, linen-less tables, name tag reuse and donating leftover food.
JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa features 548 oversized guestrooms set amid 54 acres of lush gardens. Located in Summerlin, 20 minutes northwest of the famous Las Vegas Strip, the resort is close enough to indulge in the city’s amenities, but far enough away to enjoy golfing on one of the courses surrounding the resort or explore beautiful Red Rock Canyon. Indulge yourself at JW Marriott’s luxurious Aquae Sulis Spa or lounge by the grass-edged pool. Plus, the resort features a wide selection of dining and entertainment options, from casual to elegant. All services and amenities synonymous with JW Marriott are at your fingertips when you visit.
