    POSTED December 18, 2016
     

The 2016 MarCom Awards, a creative competition that recognizes marketing and communication achievements, have given four different awards to VISIT Milwaukee for their outstanding work.

The awards include the Platinum Award for their Meet Milwaukee Video, the Gold Award for their 2016 Official Visitors Guide, The Gold Award for their DearMKE Instagram Site, and an Honorable Mention for their International Brochures.

The Association of Marketing & Communications is responsible for the MarCom Awards. More than 17 countries participate, resulting in 6,500-plus entries, which include nonprofits, communication departments, advertising agencies, PR firms and more.

The Platinum Award is the highest title, given to  organizations that produce the highest quality, creativity and resourcefulness. Gold Awards are given to those who exceed the industry’s standards.

“Our VISIT Milwaukee team strives for excellence in promoting Milwaukee as a top destination,” says Megan Gaus Suardini, vice president of marketing and communications at VISIT Milwaukee. “The MarCom Awards inspire us to continue to work towards being the best at what we do to position Milwaukee nationally and internationally.”

Autograph Collection Hotels announced The Blackstone will join the brand's portfolio of more than 100 independent hotels across the globe on June 7.

 

Graves Hospitality has proposed plans for a future development on the current site that will necessitate the immediate closing of Bradstreet Craftshouse in Minneapolis.

The restuarant opened in 2009 in the downtown Minneapolis Graves 601 Hotel. In 2014, Graves Hospitality sold the hotel and the Bradstreet concept was moved to the Lowry Hill neighborhood of Minneapolis. It opened again in 2015. In approximately 14 months, Bradstreet will open within the InterContinental Hotel, which will be directly connected by skyway to Terminal One of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport.

 

White Lodging has announced the appointment of five personnel to the anticipated Le Méridien Denver Downtown and AC Hotel Denver Downtown hotels: Sean Rush, Dual Assistant General Manager; Alexander Lomas, Dual Director of Marketing and Business Travel; Renee DeBell, Dual Senior Sales Manager; Britt Kupper, Dual Senior Sales Manager; and Charles Fox, Dual Sales Manager.
