Travelife for Hotels has been chosen as the preferred international sustainability certification programme to support and partner with the flagship sustainable tourism event Global Green Destinations Day 2016 taking place on the 26th to 27th September in Ljubljana.
Sören Stöber, Travelife Commercial Director will participate in a panel discussion on the benefits of sustainability certification for the industry. Travelife will host a Green Hospitality Workshop in which Travelife certified hotels will share their sustainability experiences and how they have benefitted from certification. Travelife will also sponsor a Green Tourism Lab networking space, a unique opportunity to exchange stories and ideas.
As the chosen sustainable tourism certification to achieve partner status to support the event, Travelife will be recognised alongside leading experts in sustainable development and green tourism. A programme of speakers includes opinion leaders, representatives of destinations, associations, hoteliers and tour operators who drive for sustainable development in tourism.
Travelife welcomes the opportunity to partner with Global Green Destinations Day as a great opportunity to discuss with hotels in this region how to further implement sustainability initiatives into their operations.
Urša Malovrh, Hotel Manager of Hotel Park Ljubljana in Slovenia, who will present at Travelife’s Green Hospitality Workshop said: “By joining the Travelife certification scheme we accepted the need to improve our hotel operations and make them more sustainable. By attending Global Green Destinations Day, we will encourage all other hotels in Slovenia to join the Travelife scheme.”
