    Sheraton Green Policies

    The Sheraton is pursuing a triple-bottom-line approach to sustainability and responsible behavior. A few of the Sheraton Downtown Denver's initiatives are:

  • Partnership with Make-A-Wish, Colorado ProStart, Children’s Miracle Network- Children’s Hospital Colorado, Habitat for Humanity, and other local organizations.  As a hotel had 1,0333 collective hours of volunteer events and opportunities. 
  • Composting of all food waste from banquet events, kitchen preparations and associate cafeteria, with an average of 546,000 pounds of food composted each year
  • Elimination of Styrofoam from entire hotel and introduction to compostable containers
  • Wines on tap to reduce use of bottles in our venues
  • Through renovation in 2009 Sheraton reduced energy consumed by 1,194,815 kwh, diverting 679 tons of Co2 from the atmosphere
     
  • The AAG Hotel Block

    For each Annual Meeting, the AAG works diligently to reserve the accommodations and space we need for our 8,500 attendees and 1,700 sessions.  

    When a venue is secured for our meeting, the AAG contracts a number of guest rooms at one or more hotels. In order to acquire the meeting and event space we need for our sessions, exhibits and receptions, we partner with hotels to bring them revenue in the form of booked hotel room nights. 

    In making our agreements with our Annual Meeting hotel partners, we receive access to meeting and special event space that we can then use to further our mission of education, engagement, and community among geographers. Without our efforts to book and fill the hotel blocks, the meeting space rental fees would be extremely costly, making the Annual Meeting much more expensive.

    Our Annual Meeting hotels are safe, reputable, and centrally located properties in interesting and dynamic cities. The rates at these hotels are negotiated on behalf of attendees to be lower, more equitable, and more predictable over time than the regular rates offered to non-conference attendees. 

    Without the support of attendees like you staying in the discounted hotel blocks, our fees and prices would need to drastically change to afford those added costs. These price changes would mean that registration fees and membership dues could rise. The ability of AAG to offer meeting space and materials at little to no charge would disappear and members would get less support when needed. 

    AAG staff work tirelessly to find the best prices for its members and for the association by working with various partners in interesting and exciting cities. Please consider staying in the AAG hotel block.
