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.”

Event planners often schedule meetings and events in natural places near wilderness areas, at waterfront resorts, and at mountain event spaces. But there are many ways to bring nature into your events by making use of the architectural concept of biophilic design, which can be defined as seeking to engage most people’s innate desires to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. If you think of yourself as an “event architect,” you can use nature to stimulate the senses. 

 

It won’t be quite the same as ordering a pizza or nachos to be delivered to your front door but getting eats at venues is taking a leap toward convenience with a new collaboration: DoorDash has become ASM Global’s “On-Demand Delivery Platform” partner, launching at ASM Global’s top North American arenas, stadiums, theaters, and convention centers in the coming months. The partnership will allow attendees to skip traditional lines by leveraging DoorDash services to order within the arena for pickup.

 

Located on the River Walk, the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk has completed its $38 million renovation just in time for its 40thanniversary. The renovation broke ground in December 2021. The hotel’s 602 guestrooms and 28 suites were redesigned to reflect an upscale urban experience.
