WTS International Acquires Meet Hospitality, Will Expand Services

USA, Rockville, Maryland. December 21, 2021

WTS International, a global provider of hospitality and amenity services for commercial, residential and hotel properties, today announced it has acquired Meet Hospitality Services LLC, which provides design and management services for meeting, conference and amenity centers in New York City.

Barry Goldstein, WTS Chief Executive Officer, said Meet Hospitality's resources and expertise in conference and meeting management will enable WTS to offer a broader spectrum of services and attract a new category of clients while providing an additional base of operations in New York, one of North America's most important meetings and conference markets.

"WTS is in the business of activating spaces for building owners and managers where meetings and conferences are an important building amenity," he said. "Commercial real estate owners and building managers are looking for a single company that can manage their meeting and conference facilities along with their other building amenities."

The Meet Hospitality acquisition builds on recent WTS successes, including the signing of contracts with Silverstein Properties, Brookfield Properties, RXR Realty and RFR Holding to assist with event and community engagement.

Meet Hospitality was founded by Sara and Marc Schiller, who envisioned developing lively and evocative meeting spaces in Manhattan. They later were joined by Andy Dolce, the founder of Dolce Hotels and Resorts, who pioneered the Complete Meeting Package, now embraced by many hotel companies and the International Association of Conference Centers as a standard. Andy Dolce and Sara Schiller will continue to advise the business, and the other Meet Hospitality executives will join the WTS Amenities Division.

Hotel Human Resources: The Great Resignation


Hotels have always struggled with the task of attracting and retaining qualified employees. At any given moment, hotels are consistently understaffed which makes providing quality guest services a persistent challenge. Additionally, as a consequence of the pandemic, there has been a mass exodus of workers who left their employers and haven't returned. This phenomenon has become known as the Great Resignation. In one month alone last year, over 900,000 employees left hospitality jobs, affecting all areas of operations including frontline workers,  restaurant and housekeeping staff, and hotel management. To overcome these challenges, Human Resource departments are implementing a variety of solutions. First, they are reassessing their wage and benefits guidelines in an effort to become more competitive. They are also leveraging digital technology to attract and retain talent, and to improve the employee experience. The goal is to centralize communications, enhance employee engagement, empower independent decision-making, and expand educational opportunities. The March Hotel Business Review will explore what some HR professionals are doing to address these critical employment issues in their respective departments.
