A new LEED certification for The Axiom Hotel in San Francisco and a new networking event from IAEE NY are the top headlines to follow today in the meetings and events industry.

Axiom Hotel in San Francisco Earns LEED Silver Certification

In sustainable events news, the new Axiom Hotel in San Francisco has earned a silver Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). 

The hotel’s sustainable amenities include offering guests convenient filtered ice and water stations on every guest floor, providing guests with unlimited and complimentary fresh filtered water, instead of plastic bottled water for purchase. The hotel’s interiors were also outfitted with highly energy efficient LED lighting, an Energy Management System in each guest room with occupancy sensors that detect guest motion and adjust temperatures accordingly, and a comprehensive recycling program, which includes recycling bins in each guestroom. Other features aimed at reducing the hotel’s carbon footprint include dual-flush toilets to save water usage, as well as the deployment of Smart TVs for guest information guides and in-room dining menus to limit paper usage and waste.

The 152-room hotel has 1,000 square feet of designated event space, as well as lounges and hot spot areas aimed at inspiring collaboration. One meeting room, Hub, is divisible into Hub 1 and Hub 2 sections, each of which can hold 12 - 18 people, or 48 people when combining both. The Cloud on the hotel’s Mezzanine level can accommodate up to 100 people in a space with arcade games, televisions and lounge furniture. 

IAEE NY to Host Room Escape Networking Event

On November 16 IAEE’s New York chapter is celebrating National Young Professional Networking Day with a chance to take part in 59:59 Room Escape NYC, a 60-minute puzzle-solving adventure that will pit groups of chapter members against a locked room with 59 minutes and 59 second to solve all the puzzles inside and win their freedom.
