FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HYATT REGENCY TRINIDAD HOSTS SUSTAINABLE MEETINGS CONFERENCE
Premier Caribbean meetings hotel leads green initiatives and encourages eco-friendly meetings with savings

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (May 13, 2013) – Sustainable tourism took the stage at Hyatt Regency Trinidad, as the Caribbean's premier business hotel played host to the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO)'s 14th Sustainable Tourism Conference (STC-14). In line with Earth Day and coming off the heels of Carnival, the hotel located in the heart of downtown Port of Spain, continues to provide services, products and initiatives offering groups a sustainably conscious location for all their business and meetings needs.

The STC-14, designed to explore ways for the Caribbean to capitalize and compete with destination sustainability, chose Hyatt Regency Trinidad for its central location and sustainable initiatives that represent the organization's ongoing mission. Meeting planners are drawn to the hotel's newly adopted food philosophy, Food. Thoughtfully Sourced. Carefully Served., focusing on food locally and sustainably sourced to benefit the community and guests while leaving a minimal carbon imprint. The hotel works with meeting planners and encourages them to participate in Hyatt's Meet and Be Green program  which offers groups three percent off the Master Bill for following ten environmentally thoughtful steps:
•    Use products with 100 percent recycled content
•    Print materials locally
•    Minimize shipping
•    Recycle during the meeting
•    Rather than setting materials at every seat, place meeting materials, such as handouts, notepads, pens, etc., in a central location so attendees can take as needed
•    Maintain room temperatures at an appropriate level
•    Eliminate disposable water bottles
•    Minimize use of other disposable products such as plates, cups, napkins, and utensils
•    Select locally grown seasonal foods when planning the menu
•    Plan ahead for the meeting to make it easier and more economical to keep the meeting green

Meet and Be Green is part of Hyatt's larger pledge to conserve energy, minimize waste and create responsible, sustainable corporate practices to care for the Earth and guests. By empowering guests to commit to a more sustainable lifestyle, Hyatt and its planners can help minimize the environmental impact of meetings. Full details of the program and promotion are available at www.hyattmeetings.com.

In addition, Hyatt Regency Trinidad's team of expert event planners and staff has the experience and meetings knowledge (not sure which sounds better) to accommodate groups of all sizes while providing personal attention for the most intimate details. Guests visiting with a meeting or group will enjoy the spacious 43,000 square feet of meeting space including two ballrooms, an executive boardroom, a private conference room and 12 meeting rooms.  In addition to the extensive meeting space, planners will find high speed wired and wireless internet available in meeting rooms, public areas and guestrooms, translation facilities for international meetings, a full-service business center, as well as trained, professional meeting and event planners on staff to ensure that every detail is covered, including a creative culinary team that can tailor menus for groups of any size.
