Chris Flatt, an employee at Wynn Las Vegas’s Executive Vice President of Hotel Sales and Marketing, just earned an honorable placement on the 2016 Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association International’s list of the Top 25 Extraordinary Minds.

Flatt made the HSMAI list for her innovation, creativity, great sales work and her strategic marketing initiatives.

Flatt will be honored by the HSMAI with the Adrian Awards Dinner Reception and Gala on Feb. 21, 2017 in New York.

The U.S. Travel Association has called the current moment the “Great Travel Depression,” in light of the economic effects resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Portland will be home to the first Ritz-Carlton in the Pacific Northwest. Developer BPM Real Estate Group is bringing the brand to the city, with an anticipated opening in early 2023. Plans call for a 35-story tower with 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units, including eight penthouses.
