ODESSA, FLA.—November 7, 2016—Green Lodging News, lodging’s leading environmental news source, has launched its new website at www.greenlodgingnews.com. The site features improved navigation, access to almost 9,000 news and feature articles and columns, a Green Product & Service Directory with more than 50 categories, and new, larger ad positions.
“I am very excited to launch this new site,” says Glenn Hasek, Publisher and Editor. “It is the culmination of more than 10 years of work—a catalogue of content documenting thousands of efforts to improve hotel building and operations sustainably. I would like to thank Westlake, Ohio-based Modgility for their assistance in building and developing this new site.”
Some of the departments and pages at www.greenlodgingnews.com include: Energy Management, Water Conservation, Green Design, Sustainability, Vendor News, Kitchen & Laundry, Renewable Energy All Stars, Green Videos, Vendor Videos, Guest Columns, News Blog, Publisher’s Point of View, Certification Programs, Vendor Case Studies, Founding Sponsors, Events and much more.
“For the first time I have dedicated an area on the site to the Green Lodging Survey, a project launched earlier this year with Greenview,” Hasek says. “Participants in the survey can access that section of the site for updates and links to sponsorship opportunities.”
Website Traffic Record
Green Lodging News has had a busy year in 2016. In April it launched the Green Lodging Survey with Greenview, in July it celebrated its 10th anniversary, in August the website set a record with 32,111 different visitors, and in October the website generated 644,077 page views—another Green Lodging News record.
“Green Lodging News has come a long way since it was just an idea I had more than 10 years ago,” Hasek says. “I am excited to see so many people visiting our website. It is a testament to the quality of news content found on the site—articles contributed by myself, suppliers, industry consultants, public relations representatives and others.”
Green Lodging News, a Hasek Communications L.L.C. publication, consists not only of the Green Lodging News website, but also a weekly Monday e-newsletter and weekly Wednesday Green Supplier Spotlight e-blast that focuses on one supplier.
