Ken Ellens Communications and Anne Sweeney Public Relations have partnered together to provide communication for Teneo Hospitality Group, the meeting sales organization that works with more than 300 hotels and resorts all over the world.

The company’s mission to understand and persevere has helped them experience major grow during their three years in business. While the organization is young, their group has a wide range of experiences and has some of the hospitality industry’s top professionals on staff.

“There is a growing appetite within the group meetings market for independent, non-branded hotels that provide greater flexibility than their branded competition,” says Mike Schugt, president. “Teneo can provide access to over 300 of these hotels for booking business within a wide range of independent properties, as well as more traditional meetings-related hotels and conference centers.”

The latest Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Business Travel Recovery Poll revealed that business travel is surging forward and international travel is returning alongside the challenges of rising fuel prices, inflation, supply chain disruption, and the war in Ukraine. In addition, corporate travel policies are undergoing a revamp, and a large majority of employees indicate they are willing to travel for business. 

 

The hospitality and meetings and events industries are known for their generosity. Even after a couple of tough years courtesy of the COVID-19 pandemic, helping others has remained a priority. Here are a few examples from around the country. 

 

On May 4, Knowland, a provider of meetings and events intelligence data, released its monthly report for April 2022. The data showed a significant increase in meetings activity, with a 323% increase over April 2021, including a 3.7% recovery of events from March to April 2022.

Additional information included:

•     In April 2022, the average number of attendees per event was 118, compared to 63 in April 2021 and 74 in April 2019.
