Ocean Inspired Orlando Meeting Space Shines With Reinvented Designs

Updated Decor, One Palm Certification Creates Environment Friendly Atmosphere at Orlando Airport Marriott

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - Dec 3, 2012) - Exciting new ocean inspired Orlando meeting space inside one of the premier Orlando conference center hotels is offering fresh contemporary designs and enhanced technology to businesses seeking inspirational and environmentally friendly meeting destinations.

Recently completing a "reinvention" that brings a brand new look, feel and functionality to Orlando meeting rooms, the distinctive Orlando Airport Marriott is boasting a remarkable, custom designed "Islands from Above" décor that ties in a selection of vibrant colors while abstractly illustrating the place where land meets water. Calming, island-inspired artwork in shades of blue and green accented with soothing earth tones can be found throughout the hotel, helping to set the pace for a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere. This new perspective creates an exciting feel that is sure to enhance networking interactions and boost meeting productivity as guests are now treated to comfortable communal areas for working and socializing while enjoying new carpet and upscale furnishings.

An ideal site for business conferences and corporate events, this stylish Orlando International Airport hotel has also completed practices to help maintain an environmentally friendly atmosphere as part of the One Palm certification process. From removing all incandescent lamps and replacing them with compact fluorescents wherever possible to diverting a substantial amount of landfill trash to recycling, the hotel is taking significant steps to reduce its carbon footprint. Just by replacing the incandescent bulbs with LEDs in the ballroom and pre-function corridor, the hotel decreased its usage from 17.5 to .4 Kw per hour. This practice is also reducing labor and air-conditioning costs. Installation of a new Energy Management System has reaped additional savings over last year and more than 80 percent of the lodging's pumps and motors are now equipped with Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) to lessen the Kw impact at start up.

Offering nearly 30,000 square feet of event space featuring state-of-the-art technology, that includes an expansive pool deck for outdoor events, this transformed Orlando Airport meeting space is supported by the skills and services of dedicated event managers trained to ensure every detail is perfectly executed, and professional culinary artists offering inspiring event menus to meet the needs of nearly any occasion.

To be one of the first organizations to experience this ocean-inspired meeting space, event -planners may submit an RFP by visiting or call 407-851-9000.
