Alan Palmer has landed the job of group sales director for Snowmass Tourism. He brings 30 years of experience in ski area and hospitality to his position.

“We are thrilled to bring Alan on board as the new group sales director at Snowmass Tourism,” says Rose Abello, tourism director. “Alan’s wealth of experience in the ski and hospitality industries, not to mention his experience with the leisure travel and the tour operator market, make him a wonderful addition to our group sales team.”

Most recently, he served as the director of group sales at  the Valencia Resort in San Diego. At the five-star, five-diamond hotel, he worked with regional groups to increase business and oversaw a number of different service teams.

“After the past three years in California, joining Snowmass Tourism team feels like coming home,” says Alan Palmer. “I look forward to working with the group sales team, supplementing their efforts, enhancing their strengths and helping the entire community be even more successful.”

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

So far, webcams and Zoom meetings have been an essential part of 2020. While digital options are functional placeholders for meetings, chatting with a coworker over Skype doesn’t always set up a team for success. Human connection is vital to team building, and hosting safe, small meetings is a great way to revitalize teams after months of working from home.
