JW Marriott Las Vegas Unveils Reimagined Meeting & Event Space

Palms Executive Conference Center and Cascade venues now open at the Las Vegas Resort

LAS VEGAS, NV. October 31, 2017 - JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa announces the opening of its two unique and modern, reimagined event spaces – the Palms Executive Conference Center and Cascade, providing two new engaging, innovative spaces for Las Vegas meetings and events.

Located in the resort’s Palms Tower, the Palms Executive Conference Center elevates events with privacy and exclusivity. The new conference center features more than 15,000 square feet of flexible indoor, outdoor and pre-function space with plenty of natural light. The Parian Room accommodates 50-200 guests, while the conference center’s nine breakout rooms can house 10 to 100 guests. Audiovisual services include webcasting, mobile apps, high-speed internet, ClickShare technology and digital lecterns. To celebrate its grand opening, the resort is featuring several Palms Executive Conference Center grand opening offers, such as a free coffee break and a $500 referral bonus program, for meeting planners who book the new venue in 2018.

“We’re finding groups are looking for more creativity in their meetings – beautiful spaces, imaginative activities, and outdoor areas to get an inspirational breath of fresh air,” said Sam Messina, Vice President of Sales. “These new spaces allow us to have a little more fun with our events, while also providing our clients all the nuts and bolts to make their events and meetings stand out.”

Neighboring event venue Cascade, located just off the casino floor, offers more than 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space with an open floor plan. Following the recent opening, the room has played host to special events, business seminars and weddings, including fashionable wedding brunches.

The resort’s culinary team custom crafts inspired meal breaks, using communal and family dining, restaurant style food selections, and JW Marriott’s award-winning service. The pre-function space offers an expansive patio area surrounded by greenery and waterfalls. The new space is designed to be eco-friendly, with hydration stations to limit the use of plastic bottles, electronic signage, linen-less tables, recycled notepads and paperless communication options.

The two new Las Vegas event spaces provide planners with a modern setting for innovative meetings, or the perfect backdrop for couples to be – all within a premier resort nestled in the golfing and shopping community of Summerlin. For more information, call 1-702-869-7777.

Human Resources: Value Creation

Businesses must evolve to stay competitive and this is also true of employment positions within those organizations. In the hotel industry, for example, the role that HR professionals perform continues to broaden and expand. Today, they are generally responsible for five key areas - government compliance; payroll and benefits; employee acquisition and retention; training and development; and organizational structure and culture. In this enlarged capacity, HR professionals are no longer seen as part of an administrative cost center, but rather as a member of the leadership team that creates strategic value within their organization. HR professionals help to define company policies and plans; enact and enforce systems of accountability; and utilize definable metrics to measure and justify outcomes. Of course, there are always new issues for HR professionals to address. Though seemingly safe for the moment, will the Affordable Care Act ultimately be repealed and replaced and, if so, what will the ramifications be? There are issues pertaining to Millennials in the workforce and women in leadership roles, as well as determining the appropriate use of social media within the organization. There are new onboarding processes and e-learning training platforms to evaluate, in addition to keeping abreast of political issues like the minimum wage hike movement, or the re-evaluation of overtime rules. Finally, there are genuine immigration and deportation issues that affect HR professionals, especially if they are located in Dreamer Cities, or employ a workforce that could be adversely impacted by federal government policies. The March Hotel Business Review will take a look at some of the issues, strategies and techniques that HR professionals are employing to create and sustain value in their organization.
