Sam Toscano, CMP, has recently been appointed to sales manager for 1000 Island Harbor Hotel in Clayton, N.Y.

“Since opening a little more than two years ago, 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel, and consequently the destination, have seen a steady upsurge in visitors, conferences and weddings,” says Todd Buchko, general manager. “We’re thrilled to have Sam on our team to help manage the number of growing opportunities, and seek out more prospects that benefit both the hotel and community at large.”

Toscano's role as sales manager will be to bring in visitors both from the region and from all over the nation. He's had about eight years of experiences at Turning Stones Resort and Casino where he worked as sales manager.

Currently, Toscano is the president of the board of directors for the Eastern Great Lakes Chapter of MPI and is also a hospitality advisory board member at Monroe Community College in Rochester.

“I’m thrilled to begin working for such an incredible property and destination that are both becoming more and more known on both the consumer and business sides of hospitality,” says Toscano. “I hope to further boost Clayton and the Thousand Island region’s position and presence in the market.”

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
