Aimbridge Hospitality Executive Opens Nominations for Cinderella to Ceo™awards on Carnival Dream CEO

USA, Dallas, Texas. March 13, 2019

Nominations for the Cinderella to CEO™ Awards opened in the Port of New Orleans with a launch party on Carnival DREAM on Sunday, February 10th with Natalie White, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Aimbridge Hospitality, serving as co-host of the event with Carnival Cruise Line, Chase Bank and Broussard Global.

"The best advice I received when climbing up the corporate ladder is to always reach back and pull another woman up with you. Nominating deserving women for these awards is a great way to lift up other women," said Ms. White. Celebrating women who have broken through barriers, The Cinderella to CEO Awards encourage women who have transformed a community, business or industry to nominate themselves and others for the inaugural awards.

Christine Duffy, president of Carnival Cruise Line, a member of the nominating committee for Cinderella to CEO Awards and founder of Carnival's internal women's program "AspiringWomen," added "these new, breakthrough awards are inspired by the book From Cinderella to CEO, and the classic fairy tales we all know."

Other members of the Cinderella to CEO nominating committee include Samantha Saperstein, head of Chase Bank's Women on the Move and Judy Hendrick, Executive Vice President and CFO of Aimbridge Hospitality and founder of the company's WLEAD leadership program for women.

The organizers of the Cinderella to CEO Awards are encouraging everyone throughout the U.S. to nominate women with real-life, transformational stories who are changing the world for the better.

Beginning February 10th at 12 noon CST, nominations can be submitted on the website: cinderellaceoawards.com - To enter, an Entrant must either 1) submit information, or 2) be nominated by a third party at http://www.cinderellaceoawards.com/nominate/. All entries must be received by May 5, 2019 at the stroke of midnight (all time zones).

"Aimbridge CFO Judy Hendrick, who founded our internal women's program WLEAD, is on the nominating committee for the Awards and our CEO and Chair Dave Johnson was instrumental in mentoring the author of the book, Cary Broussard in her writing of the book, on which the Awards are based. We look forward to encouraging hundreds of nominations in the coming months," added Ms. White. Additional stops to gather nominations currently include New Orleans, Dallas, Miami, Memphis, Nashville and New York. More stops may be added.

There is no cost to enter or nominate women for the nine, individual categories of the Cinderella to CEO Awards. Each category champions an area of transformational accomplishment and empowerment by women. However, there is a category to reward teamwork, the Hansel and Gretel Award, and men can be nominated.

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
