The GMBHA luncheon on June 21st with keynote speaker Herve Houdre, Regional Director and General Manager of Intercontinental New York Barclay was a huge success! Two hundred and fifty guests from Miami’s hospitality industry attended the event and learned the strategies and benefits of becoming eco-friendly and how commitment to the local community is the most important factor of being sustainable, according to Mr. Houdré.  Special thanks to our title sponsor, Easy Grass and our host Robert Hill, General Manager, Intercontinental Miami.
