Based on guest reviews, Trivago.com has named two Key West hotels one of America’s Best for 2017. The winning hotels, Marquesa Hotel placed third in the 4-star category and Almond Tree Inn placed sixth in its 3-star category. The rankings are based on 175 million traveler ratings.

The awards recognize the 40 best properties in the United States divided in four categories: 5-Star, 4-Star, 3-Star and Alternative Accommodation categories.

"It's really an honor for Key West to have two such highly ranked properties," says Harold Wheeler, director, Florida Keys tourism council. "For Key West to be commended as one of only five U.S. destinations with more than one winning hotel is remarkable."

Results from the Incentive Research Foundation’s (IRF) 2022 Incentive Travel Destination Preferences & Their Impact on Motivation confirmed that interest in incentive travel as a motivating sales reward is at an all-time high. 91% of 405 survey respondents described group incentive travel as extremely or very motivating compared to 80% last year. Individual incentive travel was rated even higher as a motivational award at 96% versus 84% last year. 

 

The key to maximizing success (and limiting risk) is for marketers to better understand how their audiovisual team works. 

It is almost event day. You are excited, but you are also stressed.

You have spent the last few months preparing for your live stream: that big product launch, quarterly Town Hall, or video conference that your boss needs to go well. Your marketing and communications teams have been working hard, and everything appears ready.

 

Everybody loves to talk about welcoming change. Then change happens, and whew, it’s tough. After the past few years, meetings and events professionals certainly appreciate that feeling, but they’re also feeling energized by so many new ways for attendees to gather.
