As a way to provide meeting-industry professionals and customers with key insights and best practices, Hilton Worldwide has launched a video series, Hilton Elevated Discussions (HED Talks).
Videos are organized into four areas of focus — Building Connections, Driving Results, Creating Experiences and Doing It All Responsibly — and will continue to evolve as new trends and best practices are identified. Speakers include Roger Dow, president and CEO of the U.S. Travel Association; Bernard Quancard, president and CEO of the Strategic Account Management Association; Deborah Sexton, president and CEO of the Professional Convention Management Association; Bobby Heard, associate executive director at the American College of Emergency Physicians; and Marie Hunter, senior director, meetings, conferences and events, for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
“The HED Talks videos create an opportunity for planners and thought leaders to share peer-to-peer best practices, which isn’t being done by others in the industry,” said Mark Komine, Hilton Worldwide’s senior vice president and head of sales for the Americas. “It’s about human connection and helping move our customers’ world closer to those connections — H2H — human-to-human.”
