Davidson Hospitality Group Launches Global Sales Office

New Female-Led Sales Apparatus Will Create Seamless, Personalized Experiences for Customers and Deliver Exceptional Value to Owners

USA, Atlanta, Georgia. March 11, 2021

Davidson Hospitality Group announces the launch of its Global Sales Office (GSO), developed with the purpose of creating exceptional value for owners and customers alike. From start to finish, sellers will be equipped with the right expertise in order to deliver tailored solutions to clients across segments and immediately impact group and transient bookings by generating unique lead opportunities.

Helmed by seasoned executives Vanessa Claspill, Vice President of Sales, Pivot, and Kathy Hood, Senior Vice President of Sales and Revenue Management, Davidson Hotels, the GSO will launch in phases with the intent of growing organically over time. Services will extend to hotels operated by Davidson Hotels, Davidson Resorts and Pivot, encompassing 61 hotels and resorts and nearly 1.5 million square feet of meeting and event space.

Global sales directors are deployed by vertical segment rather than regional territories, ensuring sellers have robust product knowledge with depth and breadth to ensure conversion and customer satisfaction. Davidson's scalable approach to creating the global sales apparatus gives owners maximum flexibility with the benefit of extended reach and expertise. The GSO is set up for success with a curated team of seasoned hospitality professionals that will differentiate themselves by offering a sophisticated, customized and engaging approach to sales.

"We are excited to introduce what we believe is truly a game changer in the management company landscape," said Davidson Hospitality Group Chief Operating Officer Pete Sams. "Championed by our tremendous sales leaders and their hand-picked team, I am confident that we will demonstrate our unmatched expertise and unwavering commitment to be the best-in-class global sales organization."

Global sales directors will work collaboratively and harmoniously with all stakeholders, inclusive of brand partners and property team members. Recognizing that alignment is critical, global sales directors will remain focused on qualifying leads to generate incremental revenue and will truly serve as an extension of the property teams.

In response to the current landscape, Davidson Hospitality Group recently rolled out a hybrid meetings initiative across all operating verticals, developed to provide hotels and resorts with tools to effectively promote and conduct meetings and special events in a socially responsible manner. With the goal of executing a connected, intentionally-designed event experience, the program enables participants to join audiences and presenters across multiple venues and locations. By optimizing technology - both traditional audiovisual and cloud solutions - properties can enhance its customer's brand or association, engage their participants, and collect data that offers new insights into the event experience.

The GSO is one more way of furthering Davidson's commitment to creating value for its owners. For more information, please visit www.davidsonhospitality.com.

Architecture & Design: Wellness is Key


Like every other facet of hotel operations, architecture and design firms are adapting their work to ensure the safety and well-being of both guests and staff. New ways to bring Wellness into hotel spaces are being explored and these solutions are taking on many forms. Hotel designs are incorporating more open floor plans, open air spaces, high ceilings, outdoor areas and operable walls into their spaces. Guests no longer want to be packed into tight areas. More "biophilic" elements are also being incorporated, offering guests the sense of being outdoors. Another trend is the reimagining of guest rooms to support remote work capabilities. Some hotels are converting empty guest rooms into office spaces, complete with effective lighting and suitable backgrounds for video conferencing. Dedicated Zoom Rooms are also becoming increasingly popular. The main goal is to provide guests with a positive experience in a space that feels safe and comfortable. These are some of the architecture and design subjects that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
