Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel & Romantic Getaway in Puerto Vallarta welcomes Mr. Arthur Viot as General Manager for the property. Mr. Viot will reinforce existing efforts to elevate the already high quality of service and overall guest experience at the property, continuing an intense promotional campaign emphasizing not only service but wellness and gastronomy via its All-Inclusive “Exquisite” Gourmet Plan.

"I am thrilled with the opportunity to join Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel & Romantic Getaway,” said Mr. Viot. “When this opportunity presented itself, I decided to take it because I wanted to continue specializing in luxury properties, providing personalized service to all guests and making them feel like they are home, but better. This might define me as a romantic, but this also identifies me perfectly with Villa Premiere's philosophy. I now find myself with a strong and consolidated team, passionate for service and with an unbeatable warmth. My duty will be to bring the best of myself to Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel & Romantic Getaway and Buenaventura Hotels."

Mr. Viot boasts vast experience, with more than 20 years in the hospitality and tourism industry.

Mr. Viot claims that was his greatest professional experience, in which he both learned a lot and successfully overcame a language barrier.

Mr. Viot moved to Mexico in 2008, working in different regions — from the Pacific coast to Mexico City and then northern Mexico, in Monterrey — and different types of hotels, directing food and beverage departments at beach resorts and business hotels.

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
