Pet travel is a booming business. The Travel Industry Association reports that fourteen percent of US adults (29.1 million) travel with a pet for fifty miles or more. Seventy eight percent of these pets are dogs. So whether your event is a wedding, reception, bar mitzvah, bat mitzvah, bachelor party, bachelorette party, reception, corporate retreat or conference, if you’re heading to Portland, Maine, take Fido with you!
More than just the latest trend, environmentally conscious meetings, receptions, conferences, weddings, seminars, retreats, birthday parties, bar mitzvahs and anniversary parties make good business sense. According to TheGreenGuide, municipal composting, green design, a high percentage of renewable energy and a high use of public transportation propelled San Francisco into the top 25 green cities in the US in 2006, and the top ten in 2005!
