“+ive Meetings” at Dusit Thani Dubai
Dusit Thani Dubai is an iconic five-star hotel that brings the essence of Thailand and Thai hospitality to the heart of Dubai. Centrally-located in the city’s business district with easy access to business and leisure pursuits, the hotel is a few minutes away from the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center, the World Trade Center, Dubai International Financial Center, as well as the newly-opened Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Mall.
Accessing the hotel is also very convenient. Dusit Thani Dubai is a 20-minute drive from Dubai International Airport. Guests can also choose to use the new Dubai Metro, which links the airport and the city. The hotel is a five-minute walk from the Financial Station Metro Station, allowing guests to travel across the city with speed and convenience.
Dusit Thani Dubai’s “+ive Meetings”, which will be available from June 2010 onwards, will provide event organizers and delegates the opportunity to contribute to eco-friendly and community-friendly causes in three areas: reducing carbon footprint, environmental sustainability, and fair trade. A certain percentage of the revenue from the “+ive Meetings” will be donated to charity.
By reducing carbon footprint, resources needed to organize the event will be sourced locally so as to reduce carbon emissions from flight cargo. Environmental sustainability meetings will see the use of recycled material, as well as using food sources that are sustainable and not endangered. For fair trade meetings, resources used in the event will be sourced directly from producers and farmers, allowing the producers and farmers to fully benefit.
The Meeting Center at Dusit Thani Dubai is a proven venue of choice for event organizers. Comprising five meeting rooms and a dedicated executive boardroom, the Meeting Center also offers complimentary wireless internet connectivity throughout the hotel, three internet stations, a fully-equipped business service center, and an all-day central coffee-break area.
