IMEX America, an expo for the travel, meetings and events industry, took place in Las Vegas on Oct. 10–12. There, Hilton announced and launched their new initiative, WowMakers, which will help recognize the hardworking professionals in the hospitality industry.

The program is intended to celebrate the 100,000-plus professionals in the industry by sharing their stories and helping them connect with others in the business—giving them the recognition they deserve.

WowMakers was introduced with the Museum of Wow, a showcase of stories of professionals that have created “wow” moments during their events. The initiative has also involved a revamping of meetings.hilton.com, the launching of a Twitter contest, #WowMakersContest and new offerings, including Hilton’s “Meet with Purpose” program.

Lake Austin Spa Resort is recognized by Condé Nast Traveler as the #2 Destination Spa Resort in the world and #1 Destination Spa Resort in the U.S. in the 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards. Adjacent from a nature preserve, the property is fixed among the Texas Hill Country. Located just outside of Austin with easy accessibility by water taxi or car, the resort is the only waterfront destination spa in the world.

 

If you’re looking for something to do to get you in the holiday spirit, look no further than The Westin Austin Downtown’s annual life-size themed gingerbread house.  

 

The Austin Marriott Downtown is raising a glass to the completion of its structural framework, literally. Instead of raising the “final beam,” the hotel held a “topping-off” event where guests watched a large crane raise three Garrison Brothers bourbon barrels onto the hotel’s rooftop, in collaboration with local spirit masters Garrison Brothers Distillery.
