The conference will be chaired by Fran Hughes, Director of the International Tourism Partnership

Minimising energy use is good for our bottom lines, for the environment, for future generations and for our reputations in a market which increasingly competes on the basis of green credentials.

This conference spans technical and human-factors aspects of energy saving. As well as explaining some of the engineering improvements that we can make and the practicalities of energy metering, our contributors will look at staff awareness and motivation. Just as importantly we will explore how we can nudge all our guests (green-minded and otherwise) towards using heating, lighting, air conditioning and hot water less wastefully, all without compromising the quality of their stay.

We will also hear about an unusual project helping an off-grid hotel in the Canaries to become more sustainable.

We hope you will join us in Birmingham for a productive and enjoyable day hearing from energy experts and networking with your industry colleagues.
