Fairmont the Queen Elizabeth Launches "Meetings that Matter"

Montreal's legendary Fairmont the Queen Elizabeth launched its Meetings that Matter programs last week, which offer planners options of creating either eco-friendly meetings—the Meeting for the Earth option—or meetings that promote world peace—the Meet-in for Peace option.

Meetings for the Earth use green practices such as recycling stations in meeting rooms, paperless and carbon-neutral events, and distribution of excess food to charity.

Meet-in for Peace events allow organizers to donate a sum equivalent to 10 percent of their group's room revenue to Amnesty International or War Child, and to receive two free room nights in the famous chamber where John Lennon and Yoko Ono staged their "bed-in for peace" 40 years ago.

Meetings must include a minimum of rooms and be booked and held within specific time frames.
