ACCESS Destination Services will now be represented in Colorado with the addition of Heidi Brown and Danielle Mason Phippen, owners of the Destination Management Company Workshop. Based in Denver, this company will be known as ACCESS Colorado in the ACCESS brand.
"We are excited to have Heidi and Danielle join the ACCESS team,” said Chris Lee, CEO of ACCESS Destination Services. “They are charismatic leaders, known for their commitment to service and creating unique experiences for clients.
Together Mason Phippen and Brown have 30 years of experience in the industry and consistently focus on creating distinctive events for their customers.
"ACCESS is comprised of like-minded DMC owners who share a passion for our industry and the clients we serve, and it was these very owners and their teams that convinced us that joining ACCESS was absolutely the perfect choice for our company," said Mason Phippen.
Currently ACCESS has 15 offices across North America.
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.
