Dallas, TX, April 21, 2010: The Astor Crowne Plaza in New Orleans was the setting for Hospitality Management Corporation’s (HMC) annual General Managers and DOS Conferences for their managed properties on April 12-14, 2010. The 3-day event included a golf tournament, and two days of conference sessions.
Conference speakers included Randy McCaslan - PKF; Gary Cook – ING Financial Advisors; Jim Stover—AJ Gallagher; Richard Crooks—PrototypeIT; Christine Robbins—5G Studios; and Maryellen Ferring – UpSell Training. Presentation topics included Hotel Security, Mentoring, eMail and Social Media Marketing, and Successful Forecasting.
A session that was especially enjoyed was a food preparation “Iron Chef” competition directed by Executive Chef Gaetan Croisier of the Astor Crowne Plaza. A Town Hall Meeting gave the attendees the opportunity to ask questions of HMC officers and corporate staff, and discuss pertinent issues. The entire conference was highlighted with the “flavor” of authentic New Orleans hospitality, food, and entertainment.
