Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport recently appointed Dustin Imbesi as the director of sales and marketing for the Burlingame hotel. He will be responsible for all sales operations for the 789-room property.

With an extensive hospitality background and 12 years of experience within the Hyatt Hotels Corporation,

After studying Culinary Arts at the Art Institute at Philadelphia, Imbesi began his career as Director of Catering and Convention Services at Hyatt Regency Rochester in New York. From there he moved onto various Hyatt Regency properties, including Newport, Rhode Island, Minneapolis and Capitol Hill. He most recently served as the director of sales, marketing and events at the Hyatt Regency Reston in Virginia.

“I am thrilled to start my next chapter on the West Coast and join the team at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport, especially during this exciting new phase following the property’s incredible transformation,” he says. “I’m most looking forward to sharing my deep passion for fostering meaningful connections and offering an all-inclusive experience for guests.”

Perhaps your attendees have hopped on those electric bikes and e-scooters that are scattered all over metropolitan areas throughout California. That’s old news, no question. Yet it’s a sure bet they’ve never been on a Vintage Electric Cruz Bike, because only 250 of them ever have been made. Mad Dogs & Englishmen Bike Shop in Carmel has a fleet of these smile generators, as well as a fleet of knowledgeable guides to lead scenic group tours. 

 

 

The wildly popular Magnolia Brewery in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood has a new addition: Magnolia Hall, a 6,500-square-foot private event space
connected to the always-bustling brewery and taproom. Just a 10-minute walk from Oracle Stadium, where the Giants play, it’s perfect for a pre- or post-game function and for more formal events, too.

 

California is one of the most abundant agricultural regions in the world, but a startling number of residents aren’t always sure where their next meal will come from. According to Feeding America, the nation’s largest network of food banks, one in eight Californians struggles with hunger. The situation is especially startling for children; one in five is food insecure.

Hunger is not a supply problem, it’s a logistics challenge. And the meetings and events industry is full of logistics-minded people who are in a position to chip away at it.
