Rosen Hotels & Resorts is now offering meeting planners the chance to "Save a Little Green" on NEW meetings booked and consumed before May 31, 2010 at its three luxurious Orlando convention hotels – Rosen Plaza , Rosen Centre or AAA Four Diamond Rosen Shingle Creek. Planners can take three percent off their total master account, saving their clients money and helping to save the environment by booking with three of the first hotels in Florida to earn the Two Palm status in Florida's Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Green Lodging program.

"We continually seek feedback from planners about how we can help them achieve their goals," said Leslie Menichini, vice president, Sales and Marketing, Rosen Hotels & Resorts, Convention Properties.

When we combine the three percent master account discount with the added value of our Rosen Green Meetings initiative, we create efficiencies in cost, energy and resources that everyone can feel good about."

Rosen Plaza, Rosen Centre and Rosen Shingle Creek recently introduced an eco-friendly meetings website called Rosen Green Meetings, outlined at The informational website is designed to assist meeting planners who are interested in reducing the environmental burdens typically associated with large meetings and conventions. The website outlines current Rosen Hotels & Resorts' eco-friendly practices and also gives planners 10 tips for holding green meetings, such as utilizing a paperless registration system, recycling name badges and using recycled paper and signage materials.

The three properties were among the first 50 properties – the top one percent in Florida – to receive One Palm designation in 2007.
