Green Globe app to launch at Imex America.

THE inaugural Imex America will see the launch of innovative sustainability tools from Green Globe Certification.

The Green Globe app and Green Globe solution centre will be showcased at the new signature event for the incentive travel, meetings and events industry being held for the first time in Las Vegas, US.

The app for Apple devices allows meeting planners to quickly locate and book meeting venues which are certified as sustainable businesses. It includes meeting venues from destinations across the globe that have rigorously proven their sustainability credentials and have been independently reviewed with on-site audits.

The solution centre takes sustainability certification to a new level, for the first time providing a community of experts contributing advice, practical examples and other solutions which assist meeting planners and venues to ensure the sustainability credentials of their events.

Green Globe Certification CEO, Guido Bauer said: "Green Globe Certification has been a regular attendee at Imex Frankfurt and expects a huge response to its new tools at this new signature event in the US."Green Globe is dedicated to the incentive travel, meetings and events industry, with global partners including the German Convention Bureau (GCB), German Event Organisers Association (VDVO) and the European Association of Event Centres (EVVC).

"In destinations around the world, Green Globe has certified hundreds of hotels and convention and congress centers. These excellent venues will be available directly via the Green Globe app. In addition the invaluable knowledge that comes from certifying these members will be available via the Green Globe solution centre," added Bauer.
