Serena Melancon, vice president of global sales was honored to accept back-to-back industry awards this month from two of Hosts long-standing partners. Serena was humbled to have received “Partner Sales Person of the Year” awarded by DMI Hotels and to accept the “Supplier of the Year” award from Experient, a Maritz Global Events Company. Both awards were presented 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.
