Written by: Staff

Bangalore, Mar 26: Hotels in India will participate in Earth Hour this Saturday, Mar 27, to promote awareness of climate change.

On this special occasion, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) have added a whole new dimension to creating meaningful fun for their guests.

Shaun Langdon, IHG's Regional General Manager for India, said, "More than just a symbolic participation, we wanted to conceive a concept that helps create awareness among our guests."

He said, "We also wanted to showcase what the community can do beyond just the designated Earth Hour, to contribute to saving energy sustainably."

The participating IHG hotels will encourage in-house guests to switch off lights in their rooms and join the 'guestogether' parties being hosted by them between 8:30 and 9:30 pm.

Crowne Plaza Bengaluru Electronic City will organize a candlelight cocktail party for in-house guests, along with 'green' theme food. Hotel employees will also form a candle-lit, heart arrangement to show their solidarity for the cause.

At the same time, Holiday Inn Gem Park Ooty will host a complimentary poolside bonfire on Mar 27 for all its in-house guests to reduce the energy consumption inside the hotel.

All lights around the hotel's facade will be switched off between 8:30 and 9:30pm on Mar 27 at Holiday Inn Mumbai International Airport, with only external signage and hallmark lights on.
