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 Revenue Management: Every Square Foot Matters


Traditionally, hotels have employed a room-centric revenue model. The primary focus was on pricing strategies that could generate the most revenue from the sale of rooms. However, the pandemic has forced hoteliers to look beyond room revenue exclusively, and to maximize all available revenue streams. How is this accomplished? By re-imagining the use and function of every square foot of a hotel property, and how revenue is generated from it. For example, some hotels are rethinking their spaces for different uses - offering rooms for private day meetings, or offering suites for private dinners. Other hotels with meeting spaces are moving beyond daytime conferences and events, and figuring out how to book those spaces in the evenings, on holidays and weekends, for such things as exhibitions, workshops, rehearsals and pop-ups. Still other hotels are leasing work spaces or parking spaces to businesses in their local market. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on how some leading hotels are re-inventing their revenue management strategies.
