Responsible experiences

A selection of corporate social responsibility and sustainability initiatives are now available to meeting and event organisers who take their programmes to any Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts properties.

Initiatives offered by the new Experience It programme are designed around three categories: People & Planet, which features activities involving children from a hotel’s local outreach project and conservation activities; Green, which utilises eco-friendly amenities during events; and Be Well, which offers event delegates fresh, sustainable and local dining options and rejuvenating activities.

“Meeting organisers are asking for alternative offerings that will spark creativity and engagement and have CSR elements, so we’ve created a menu of themed breaks, teambuilding exercises and activities that will cater to this need and energise attendees,” said Mandy Chan, Shangri-La’s director of corporate events management.

“Planting coral cones in a marine sanctuary, painting a school, engaging with local farmers on an eco-tour – these are just a few of the many Experience It activities available at our hotels.”

Chan added: “Several clients have already incorporated Experience It activities into their meeting programmes in Beijing, Singapore and the Philippines, and we expect this to be a growing trend in 2014.”
