Sustainable Meetings - Fairmont Newport Beach

Sustainable Meetings

At Fairmont Newport Beach, 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. 

Here at Fairmont Newport Beach the options include: Eco-Meet: Fairmont’s Eco-Meet program offers planners the opportunity to minimize the ecological footprint of meetings and events through the reduction of waste and conservation of valuable resources. The program can be tailored to the individual needs of the client through four key components—Eco-Accommodation, Eco-Cuisine, Eco-Service and Eco-Programming.
