Dover Downs Hotel & Casino will be hosting the annual Sustain 2016 conference March 14th and 15th this year. The focus of the conference will be on green strategies and marketing to eco-conscious consumers. The conference brings in attendees from more than the gaming industry, reaching out to the entire hospitality sector which potentially wastes thousands of tons of resources each year. The conference is designed to generate and gather new ideas for leaders to focus on energy savings, sustainability, recycling, and associated strategies for the future.

Ed Sutor, Dover Downs Hotel & Casino’s president and CEO and chair of Dover Downs’ Conference Working Group said in a release today, “This conference engages multiple conversations with our peers to understand what we can do better,” he added, “We want to work and learn with other key decision makers and directors in our area to understand what they’re doing right and how we can further our mission of being great stewards of the environment and community that supports us.”

Participants may attend any or all focus tracts of the conference which include Culture, Marketing and Sustainability; each offering workshops and activities. Information will be shared on new products, green training programs, and ways to engage the new generation of consumers who are particularly focused on responsibility and sustainability.

Paul Rada, Chairman of the Board of the Delaware Hotel and Lodging Association and General Manager of Clarion Belle Hotel near Wilmington, noted in the statement that there is a wonderful opportunity present to invest in broadening the marketability of properties, especially for hoteliers, to the millennial market, saying, “For much less than it would otherwise cost, hoteliers will be able to interact with, and learn from, experts with proven track records of developing and implementing marketing and social media strategies that have expanded brand recognition and increased their client’s bookings.”

The Sustain 2016 Conference is being presented by Waste Masters Solutions who provide environmental and other solutions in the Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey areas.
