Q Hotels has announced plans to develop a dual-branded Marriott hotel property in south Arlington, Tex. Construction is set to start this December and will finish in summer 2018. The combined SpringHill Suites and TownePlace Suites will have a total of 230 rooms.

Amenities include an event lawn entertainment space, a ballroom, an expanded fitness area, steam room, dry sauna and restaurant dedicated to healthy eating. The hotel is located 8 miles away from the DFW Airport and 3 miles south of the Arlington entertainment area.

“Q Hotels is pleased to bring compelling, new lodging options to south Arlington and to deliver a unique offering of full service hotel amenities at select service price points,” says Jags Patel, chairman. “By combining two brands into one efficient building, this all-suite property will be able to offer exceptional amenities of approximately 18,000 square feet of meeting and event space, a resort style pool with cabanas, free breakfast, a business center, a lobby bar, banquet services, room service and more.”

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.
