Ramada Ajman supports UAE Green Festival
UAE Green Festival will take place from 16 March – 16 April, 2014
Ramada Hotel and Suites Ajman has become a gold sponsor for the UAE Green Festival, a country-wide environmental campaign that is scheduled to take place from 16 March 16 – 16 April, 2014.
Under the leadership of general manager Iftikhar Hamdani, the hotel will organise a number of activities to mark the festival, including a demonstration of its energy and resource-saving practices and a presentation of its current and planned green efforts.
"Our hotel is a proud supporter of the UAE Green Festival, as this is an excellent venue to address the environmental and waste management concerns in various fields, especially in the hospitality sector,” Hamdani said. “We are very keen to share our knowledge and initiatives, and together we aim to create a big impact on the preservation of the natural wonders of all the Emirates.”
The UAE Green Festival has been designed to educate people across the seven Emirates about an achievable, enjoyable and sustainable way of life via green practices.
The aim of the festival is to unveil the UAE's sustainable identity as a leading green destination that provides its residents and visitors a better quality of life. It will also provide government bodies and private entities with a platform for knowledge exchange and discussion of issues related to sustainable development.
As part of the festival, Ramada Hotel and Suites Ajman will also be hosting the GCC Ecotourism Conference on 30-31 March in the hotel's Majestic Ballroom.
The conference, which will be attended by GCC government bodies, corporate stakeholders, international associations and delegates, will discuss the challenges related to ecotourism in the GCC and target all components of hospitality and tourism sector.
Hamdani will also speak at the conference about the importance of waste management in the hospitality sector and also share the various green initiatives being employed by the hotel.
