Cape Cod's most beloved and iconic luxury resort, Chatham Bars Inn, announces the appointment of Sheri Thimas as Spa Director. In this position, Thimas will manage spa programming, sales, and operations at The Spa at Chatham Bars Inn.

Thimas has dedicated experience in both the wellness and hospitality industries, making her a dynamic new addition to the Chatham Bars Inn executive team. Most recently, she was Spa Director at the Armand Salon Spa in Kingston, MA, where she successfully oversaw the spa, salon and its staff.

"Sheri is an exciting, passionate addition to our leadership team, who will be a driving force to elevate our spa and programming throughout the year. Our guests tend to be wellness-oriented, so we are focused on introducing new experiences that speak to physical wellbeing and mindfulness," said Gary Thulander, Managing Director of Chatham Bars Inn. "We look forward to the long-term impact Sheri will have on the staff, guests, and the future of The Spa at Chatham Bars Inn."

A soothing, restorative escape for the body and soul, The Spa at Chatham Bars Inn offers a full range of treatments.

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.
