Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center named Southwest Showcase Most Exciting Meeting Destination Change Award
The Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center was named the winner of the 2020 Southwest Showcase Most Exciting Meeting Destination Change award. This recognition is awarded to any organization, city, bureau, group or company responsible for notable development to a destination of interest to the event industry. The Southwest Showcase Board selected the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center as the winner of this award based on a nomination from Dana Lodge, the Director of Sales at the Denton Convention and Visitors Bureau, in which nominees were judged on the utility, scope, and value of the project that brought change to their area. The Embassy Suites was nominated for its role in opening the door for holding conferences by Denton’s two large universities, as well as bringing in groups from outside of the city of Denton for conventions and conferences.
According to the nominator, Dana Lodge, “The project has exceeded all expectations. Immediately, conventions, conferences and meetings started booking the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center even before the ceremonial groundbreaking. Our community now has a first-class hotel and meeting space for all types of university business, associations, corporate and leisure travelers.”
This award is among many that the AAA Four Diamond property has received since its grand opening in January of 2018, including being ranked #1 of all Hilton Embassy Suites for the first two quarters of 2019 as well as being LEED Gold Certified for its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.
“On behalf of O’Reilly Hospitality Management and the team at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Denton Convention Center, we are thrilled to receive this award which shines a light on the City of Denton as a unique destination,” said GM Jeff Pritts. “Our Embassy and its host city boast an originality that welcomes, entertains, and inspires residents and visitors alike. We are thankful for the recognition this award will bring the city and the Embassy.”
