The Langham, New York, Fifth Avenue is celebrating Earth Month with green meeting and event initiatives as part of its CONNECT Conferences program. EarthCheck Silver certified, The Langham will be focusing on being green from within and educating meeting attendees on environmental consciousness.

Some of the Earth Day-inspired conference options include the choice to use locally-grown, organic and ethically farmed ingredients in banquet menus; an online event carbon footprint calculator to measure the environmental cost of an event; house-bottled, triple-filtered water in reusable bottles for all meetings and events; integration of green lighting solutions from SoLight, a line of distinctively designed solar lighting that combines the power of the sun with innovative design aesthetics; and the option of donating flowers from each event to a local hospital.

CONNECT Conferences are a brand-wide program from The Langham Hotels & Resorts that offers planners the option of selecting sustainable solutions to offset the environmental impact of meetings and events.

In addition to these conferences, The Langham invests in an ORCA machine that recycles 250 pounds of food scraps per day to be recycled as liquid that can safely pass through drains rather than being thrown away. Also, Romeo Stivaletti, executive chef, has ensured that 80 percent of the seafood served on the hotel's banquet and in-room dining menus is sustainably and ethically sourced.

The Broadmoor is welcoming a new 125,000-square-foot Exhibition Hall in spring 2020, an addition to the existing Broadmoor Hall, International Center and Colorado Hall to form “The Broadmoor Event Center.”  

The Broadmoor will be the only Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond awarded hotel in the country to operate a large on-site exhibition space.
