For the sixth year in a row, Woodloch Pines in Hawley, Pa., has been named one of the best hotels for families by TripAdvisor. It ranks 17th in the United States, according to their annual Travelers’ Choice Awards. Their sister property, The Lodge at Woodloch, was listed the 22nd best hotel in America.

“We are thrilled to be honored by the TripAdvisor community again this year. It is humbling to see our resort that has been in my family for nearly 60 years, among so many amazing properties and national brands,” said John Kiesendahl, CEO and President of Woodloch Pines. “And to be included in the top three on this list for the past six years in a row, I can't express the gratitude and emotions I feel.”

TripAdvisor is the world’s largest online travel community and the site is home to millions of travelers’ reviews. Award winners are selected through an algorithm that factors in both the quantity and quality of the reviews over a 12-month period. Based off this, the award places Woodloch Pines Resort and The Lodge at Woodloch in the top one percent of hotels around the world.

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.
