What’s has your bureau sales team been up to, you ask? Here’s what!
Your bureau sales staff and hotel partners traveled to New Brunswick, New Jersey last week to represent Saratoga at the Meet USA East Coast. Meet USA is produced by EMC venues, and is held in four locations across the country each year. This year’s conference marked the sixth year the show has come to the New Jersey/New York market, an area rich in both corporate and northeast association business. The two day conference was attended by about 150 meeting planners, and the organizers excelled at offering multiple points of contact for planners and suppliers, providing numerous and creative networking and ice breaking opportunities. The bureau took our exposure to the next level by becoming a gold sponsor, which afforded us additional opportunities to get in front of the audience with our Saratoga message. Marie Moynihan made a presentation at the opening general session which was very well received – she received several compliments throughout the remainder of the show -, we had larger, preferred exhibit space on the trade show floor, as well as continuous advertising and promotion at the lunch program, in all publications, in the break areas and on the continuous scrolling LCD screens. Over all, we feel the show was a great success in introducing Saratoga to a new audience as well as re-familiarizing and updating those who know and have used us in the past. We will now begin our efforts to follow up with the contacts we made and look to bring new business to Saratoga. A special thanks goes out to Mary Jo Janis of the Gideon Putnam Resort and Jamie Lanning of Longfellow’s for making the trip with us and representing our fabulous destination!
