Sustainability in Maine's Tourism Industry:
Spring Networking Reception & Forum
Thank you again to everyone who attended, and to all of our sponsors for making the event possible!
4:00 - 5:30 pm: Forum
5:30- 7:30 pm: Spring Networking Reception
Tourism revenue in Maine reached a record $5.65 billion in 2015, a 3.2 increase over the previous year (Maine Office of Tourism), with a total economic impact of more than $8 billion and 99,000 supported jobs. Since a clean environment is key to Maine’s tourism “brand,” more businesses are reducing energy and water use; generating less waste and increasing composting; using less toxic products; and buying local food.
This forum is intended to amplify Maine’s sustainable tourism message and highlight Maine businesses’ innovative approaches to sustainable management practices, from using solar and wind for hotel and inn heating and electricity, to serving sustainable fish in restaurants, to preserving lands and forests for wildlife engagement and enjoyment.
