Meetings that Matter
Shortly after its opening, Fairmont Bab Al Bahr has established a reputation in the city as an environmental leader. As a result of the commitment to sustainable development and events, the hotel was awarded with 3 Green Keys in the Green Eco-Key Rating program, recognizing the significant steps the property has taken to protect the environment and local community.
In line with this view, we believe meetings and conferences can have a positive impact beyond the meeting room, as companies and planners alike seek out ways to give back to the communities and destinations where they gather. Let our sales and conference services managers tailor a program that will meet the needs of your busy group and at the same time find a way for them to leave a lasting impression on the community.
We offer planners the opportunity to:
- minimize their meeting footprint with Eco-Meet, our exclusive green conference planning option that lessens the environmental impact of the meeting through reduced resource consumption

- designate 10% of guest room revenue to either a local charity supported by Fairmont Bab Al Bahr and aligned with Fairmont’s commitment to community well-being and environmental sustainability, or to one that resonates more closely with their guests
