Hosts Global received the 2016 “Supplier of the Year” award from Experient, a Maritz Global Events Company. Serena Melancon, vice president of global sales for Hosts Global, was honored to accept the award in Cleveland, Ohio, during the Experient EnVision conference, an annual forum for internal Experient business planning and education that gathers Experient’s team members, hotels and supplier partners each March.
Experient determines their “Supplier of the Year” recipient through company-wide nomination and based on partnership criteria, business ethics and industry leadership. “What a thrill it was to see the shock and surprise on Serena’s face,” said David Peckinpaugh, president of Maritz Global Events. “We are very thankful for all that she does to support our company, our teams and our clients!”
Hosts’ partnership with Experient is well established and continues to thrive. “This recognition is a testament to the success of our long-standing partnership, the quality of our global DMC members and our commitment to consistently exceeding service levels”, said Marty MacKay, president of Hosts Global Alliance. “It’s a privilege to support Experient and be associated with such a highly-respected industry titan.”
