IMEX America, an expo for the travel, meetings and events industry, took place in Las Vegas on Oct. 10–12. There, Hilton announced and launched their new initiative, WowMakers, which will help recognize the hardworking professionals in the hospitality industry.

The program is intended to celebrate the 100,000-plus professionals in the industry by sharing their stories and helping them connect with others in the business—giving them the recognition they deserve.

WowMakers was introduced with the Museum of Wow, a showcase of stories of professionals that have created “wow” moments during their events. The initiative has also involved a revamping of meetings.hilton.com, the launching of a Twitter contest, #WowMakersContest and new offerings, including Hilton’s “Meet with Purpose” program.

Sonesta Silicon Valley has been making some big changes. From significant updates to their communal spaces and guest rooms to a new restaurant opening in late November, the hotel has much to be excited about. So much so that this December, to celebrate the launch of the new Sonesta Event Center, the hotel will be offering a complimentary meeting package for up to 50 people. 

 

Visit Newport Beach released its new marketing campaign highlighting the destination management organization’s dedication to the small meetings market. Debuted at the 2019 IMEX America show, the concept focuses specifically on the planner and the VIP treatment that they can expect from Visit Newport Beach and the city’s hospitality community.

 

This September, Los Angeles Airport Marriott is beginning the final stage of their $50-million renovations.  

The redesign includes more than 50,000 square feet of meeting space alongside a maximum capacity of 2,500 people. The hotel will be set to host parties of any nature, including Corporate events, conventions, company retreats, holiday parties, banquets, exhibitions, workshops, and everything in between.
