More Than a Provider of Luxury Facilities, The Ritz-Carlton Offers Refreshing Alternatives to Enhance Business Meetings

CHEVY CHASE, MD--(Marketwire - Jul 19, 2011) - Whether your group is large or small, where you host your business meetings -- annual conferences, executive board meetings, retreats or client networking receptions -- is just as important as the meetings themselves. With legendary service, exceptional attention to detail and dedicated meeting planners at all 76 worldwide locations, The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C., a global leader in hotels, service and lifestyle, offers an abundance of facilities from which you can select the perfect meeting room for your gathering.

More than just a provider of luxury facilities, The Ritz-Carlton is dedicated to providing a framework of success for all types of business meetings. In our tradition of providing extraordinary service, let us begin by pairing the ideal conference or meeting room with state-of-the art technology, refreshing menus and concierge dedicated to your event. And just for hosting with us, The Ritz-Carlton will donate ten percent of the guestroom revenue to charity, divided equally between a charity of your choice and The Ritz-Carlton Community Footprints Fund.

To further enhance your business meetings consider challenging your group to one of the unique VolunTeaming® activities, offered by The Ritz-Carlton, that benefit the local community. Half and full-day projects range from harvesting organic crops for donation to a local food bank, painting murals at a local Boys & Girls Club, helping protect and preserve a historic park, and working side-by-side with members of Habitat for Humanity to transform a building site into a home.

If you're short on time and can't make it out of the meeting room, even the smallest considerations can add a feel-good, refreshing alternative to your business meetings, such as requesting eco-friendly products or donating leftover catering items to a local shelter.
