ECO-FRIENDLY MEETINGS AT OMNI ORLANDO RESORT AT CHAMPIONSGATE
ORLANDO, FL – A recipient of the Florida Green Lodging Award at the One Palm level, Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate is dedicated to providing meeting attendees with green initiatives that conserve and protect the environment. Omni Orlando Resort makes environmental stewardship a priority with eco-friendly practices from reusing table linens and providing wipe off boards for signage to serving organic foods and utilizing water coolers instead of individual bottles, creating a meeting space surpassing the expectations of meeting planners and attendees alike.
The resort features 70,000 plus square feet of meeting space including The National (grand ballroom) with 25,000 square feet and 20-foot ceilings, The International (junior ballroom) with 20,000 square feet and 20-foot ceilings, 27 meeting rooms and two executive boardrooms. A full service business center with high speed Internet access and WiFi is available in all meeting space and public areas of the resort. Convention Service Managers are on hand to meet planners’ needs, including readying a “fleet” of golf carts outside the meeting room to whisk attendees to hit the links or setting up “meeting release” chair massages.
The National and International ballrooms provide functional space that is both luxurious and sensible for groups of varying sizes. Each morning, meeting attendees are greeted with in-house Starbucks coffee served in recycled beverage cups. For lunch, the resort staff whips up eco-conscious box lunches made up of only recyclable materials and filled with delicacies the guest personally chooses. Allowing meeting attendees to design personalized lunches significantly helps to eliminate food waste.
For outdoor occasions, Omni Orlando at ChampionsGate offers an abundance of naturally landscaped outdoor function space. Creative events range from sandy beach luaus illuminated by tiki torches complete with leis and tropical drinks to bountiful poolside barbeques with aprons, spatulas and an array of scrumptious seasonings and sauces to top off the hickory smoked cuisine. To continue earth-saving practices during meeting events, Omni Orlando Resort provides recycling bins, cloth napkins and tablecloths, china dinnerware instead of Styrofoam and condiments served in reusable containers versus individual packets.
Omni Orlando at ChampionsGate delights meeting planners with flexible options, while attendees have a blast with the two Greg Norman-designed, championship golf courses, world headquarters of the David Leadbetter Golf Academy, full service European-style spa, two heated outdoor pools and 850-foot lazy river, all found at the 720-room, AAA Four Diamond resort surrounded by 1,200 acres of wetlands.
