Last week, you may remember reading here that our founder, Mario Insenga, had made a trip to Philadelphia to speak at the Philagreen Conference, sponsored by the Philagreen Hospitality Association. Yesterday, Mario continued his visit on the green hospitality circuit and had the opportunity to speak at the Boston Green Tourism Association’s Lodging Committee meeting at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Boston, MA.
Boston Green Tourism is an initiative of Massachusetts hospitality organizations, encouraging environmentally-friendly tourist services and promoting Boston as a green destination, so as you can imagine, this experience was a fantastic opportunity for us to spread our green message to some of the most reputable names in the hospitality industry.
A key message of Mario’s speech was the relationship between sustainability and good business. There are a number of hotels that get one right, but it’s hard to do both. You need committed management and ownership and a good plan, and you need to responsibly invest in the environment and your business.
Without responsible practices, good business is hollow. By the same token, environmentally conscious hotels are nothing if they fail as a business.
Travelers are seeking out eco-friendly hotels more than ever, but they’re also seeking out successful hotels – and they can find both of those in the same place.
After years of providing sustainable furniture refinishing services, we’re looking forward to being able to share TRT’s many experiences in the Bay State, and are excited about the connections we made on our most recent stop to Boston.
Our many thanks of course, go to Boston Green Tourism’s executive director, Dan Ruben for organizing such an informative, valuable event. We look forward to many more!
