As you’ve read in past blog posts and seen in our lodges, we’ve been really busy lately. We’ve launched two new websites, added new attractions, hosted fun family events and even helped break a world record. All while working to deliver the best experience to all of our guests. Like I said, we’ve been busy.
And it’s great to be recognized for all the hard work—from our guests and from the industry. Back in December we found out that we are the winner of five HSMAI Adrian Awards.
I was lucky enough to travel to New York City to accept the awards on the behalf of Great Wolf Resorts.
The event took place at the Marriott Marquis on Times Square. Among the attendees were other hotel greats like Hilton, Marriott and InterContinental. There were also a lot of travel folks there like our friends at Pocono Tourism and Visit Cabarrus.
The evening started with networking over dinner—where our Gold entries were displayed for attendees to see—and ended with the big awards show to honor the Platinum winners and the Best of Shows.
It was an honor to be in the room with so many great leaders in the hospitality industry. And of course, winning five awards wasn’t bad either.
We took home Bronze in the TV Commercial category with our “Everybody In” campaign. Two Silver awards included our GreatWolf.com redesign and our new GreatWolfKids.com. And last, but not least, two Gold awards for our Gingerbread House campaign and our blog—Behind the Howl. (Yes, you are reading an award winning blog.)
Thank you to HSMAI for recognizing us in these categories and thanks to our fans and guests. All of this hard work is for you.
