Arabian Hotel Investment Conference - AHIC 2008 / Conference

Delegates attending the upcoming Arabian Hotel Investment Conference (AHIC) 2008 are being encouraged to join ranks and help reduce global warming.

Long-distance swimmer, Lewis Gordon Pugh, also known as ‘Aqua Al Gore’, is set to reel in travel and tourism experts, decision makers and professionals with his keynote address on global climate change at AHIC 2008.

This comes in the wake of news that Dubai hoteliers arte being particularly asked to look at energy-saving measures with many properties clocking up 225% more energy usage than their European counterparts .

Pugh is set to highlight the dangers that the world faces; “We stand at a critical point in the history of the planet. Climate change is the greatest threat to life as we know it. It is serious and it's been caused by man.
“Luckily, the end has yet to be written and this is where we come in. The hotel investment sector can help. The steps which we take over the next few years will determine the future of the natural world and the sustainability of mankind .”

Conference co-organiser, MEED’s Edmund O’Sullivan said that this year’s conference is set to feature a session on Green Development which will look at how to develop a hotel in an eco-friendly way.

“If we start outlining simple steps now, it will not be long before industry leaders implement measures en-masse. This is what we need to ensure strict environmental standards are met.”

He said that AHIC is committed to ‘doing it’s bit’ to help reduce global warming and have teamed up with NativeEnergy, one of the world’s leading providers of quality carbon offsets. He indicated that AHIC 2008’s conference space and accommodation has been designed to help the carbon neutral drive.
