Premier Destination Partners Launches
Business to Promote
Events for Sandhills, Regional and National Destinations
(Village of Pinehurst, N.C.) March 7, 2009 – Newly formed, Premier Destination Partners will provide expert destination guidance for meeting event planners and sales support for select properties. While providing these services, PDP has included in its business model the commitment to return a share of proceeds to hospitality industry scholarships and conservation funds.
With nearly 30 years of industry experience, Premier Destination Partners President Steffen Sheerin asserts that planners and property partners will benefit from PDP’s business strategy to enhance market presence and services for our clients. SHEERIN has both sales and operations experience in a wide range of destinations including Chicago’s Palmer House, Chicago Hilton, Stouffer Riviere(IL), The Brown Hotel (KY), Sheraton(GA), Marriott(NY), The Greenbrier (WV) and Pinehurst Resort (NC).
While strained business levels have caused most properties to reduce sales manpower, Premier Destination Partners can offer their property partners a cost effective way to enhance sales efforts in key markets.
In this current economic environment, many properties have experienced a downturn and many companies are adjusting their meeting budgets. SHEERIN stated that “Our approach will target primary markets and existing PDP customers to produce new opportunities for our partners. Our strategy with partner properties is deliberate and focused on premier hotels, resorts, clubs and unique venues”. PDP has engaged partnership discussions with properties within a regional scope and other strategic destinations.
SHEERIN has consulted with clients involving a wide range of events including executive retreats, continuing medical education programs , association meetings, incentive groups, nonprofit organizations, sales kick-offs, training sessions, product launches and social groups.
Premier Destination Partners can provide assistance with all facets of arranging a group program. This includes destination options, comparisons, costing, on/off property recreation, unique dining options, and special assistance.
“Our industry has various channels and choices on how our business is conducted, but it all comes down to providing superior service, resources and expertise to our customers.” PDP consultation and services are designed to bring business together.
