The Statler in downtown Dallas named Evan Danziger general manager and Jennifer Wasserman as director of sales and marketing. The boutique luxury hotel is currently undergoing a $225 million renovation and is anticipated to open in spring 2017.

Danziger joins The Statler with more than 13 years of experience in hotel management, including a variety of top-level management positions throughout the United States. Additionally, he owned and operated a recruitment agency called Open Door Hospitality for five years where he recruited for high-profile companies within the hospitality industry.

Wasserman brings more than 20 years of hotel sales and marketing experience to The Statler, most recently serving as opening director of sales and marketing at The Highland Dallas. Wasserman also currently serves as the director of leadership for the D/FW chapter of Meeting Professionals International.

“We are honored to welcome two remarkable hospitality executives to The Statler,” says Dave Johnson, president and CEO, Aimbridge Hospitality. “Both Evan and Jennifer are proven experts in the hospitality industry and with their combined wealth of experience, are the perfect fit for a redevelopment of such magnitude as The Statler.”

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.
