The Winnetu Oceanside Resort Appoints Matthew Moore as New General Manager to Lead the Iconic Newly Renovated Resort

USA, Edgartown, Massachusetts. May 29, 2019

Winnetu Oceanside Resort, Martha's Vineyard's premier seasonal getaway, announces today the appointment of Matthew Moore as General Manager for the property's 2019 season reopening.

"We are thrilled for Matt to join our team and are confident that his leadership abilities come at the perfect moment as the resort has undergone a multi-year refresh and renovation," said Winnetu Oceanside Resort co-owner, Gwenn Snider. "Matt's enthusiasm for hospitality and management capabilities are sure to add to the cherished Winnetu guest experience."

With more than 25 years of diversified experience in hotel and resort operations in the New England area, the appointment of Moore as General Manager comes at an important time for the Winnetu. The resort has completed a series of property enhancements including a new pool and hot tub complex, renovations of all 58 suites, and the construction of a new multipurpose Pavilion. This three-story shingle style addition houses the concierge staff, a gathering space with a custom pool table, massage treatment rooms and a lounge. The Pavilion building will be the resort's hub, located in the courtyard that is home to the iconic life-size chess set.

To coincide with the seasonal reopening, Moore will be responsible for all resort operations, leading the way for hotel staff to delight guests with hospitality and oceanside charm. A seasoned expert, originally from New York City, Moore's management experience includes some of Boston's finest hotels including The Four Seasons, XV Beacon Hotel, and The Seaport Hotel. Most recently he has served as the General Manager for the AC Hotel Boston Downtown.

Moore comments that, "I am excited for the opportunity to join a seasoned, dedicated and passionate team at the Winnetu as they continue their journey in providing world class accommodations and attentive, thoughtful...yet unpretentious service to our guests. I also very much look forward to integrating myself into the community and

becoming part of the fabric that makes Martha's Vineyard such a magical destination for all who visit and live on Island."

Hotel Group Meetings: Uncommon Destinations

The last few years have been good to the Hotel Group Meetings industry and that trend is expected to continue into 2019. Planners are brimming with confidence due to an expanding economy and increased job creation, which typically results in a boost in corporate meetings. Given this promising outlook, planners are trying to outdo themselves to satisfy the high expectations of their clients. One notable trend is to integrate unusual settings into the meeting experience, hosting groups at local zoos, aquariums, museums, event centers, or other outdoor facilities. The goal is to embrace uncommon destinations, rather than a typical hotel conference room, so that meetings can be memorable, unique and stimulating. This is also part of another trend which is to support all things local - from hosting events at landmark city venues; to catering through local restaurants, food trucks and microbreweries; to hosting off-site excursions like agri-tours, athletic events or scenic 5k routes. However, though the setting might be spectacular, there are still some bedrock components that must be provided to ensure a successful meeting. Free, high-speed Wi-Fi is still one of the most requested services. Planners have to make sure that a comprehensive communication infrastructure is in place so clients can easily connect - and stay connected - to the network throughout the entire meeting experience. Also, technology tools can be used to streamline the booking, registration, and check-in process, and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) materials can be utilized to ensure seamless access to conference events. There are also numerous software tools that encourage audience participation, as well as integrating polls, Q&A, surveys and games into speakers' presentations. The September Hotel Business Review will examine issues relevant to group meetings and will report on what some hotels are doing to promote this sector of their operations.
