SALES REPORT

A Message from Executive Director
Randy Randall

Randy Randall, Executive Director


“Success breeds success,” is a saying I have heard many times. It applies to the meetings business in Santa Fe as well. Last year we hosted the National Governor’s Association (NGA) Conference, which I am sure you all recall or at least heard about. Because of the success of that meeting and the outstanding reviews, we are now hosting the annual meeting for the National Association of Secretaries of State in June and have a definite interest by the Democrat party chairs from each state for this fall. NGA allowed Santa Fe to showcase our event hosting expertise to a very high profile meeting known to be quite demanding and not very forgiving. The execution on the meeting was near flawless. Word of mouth is key in the meetings world and we know that the organizers of NGA have been singing Santa Fe’s praises.

Thanks to all the many providers who worked together to bring about this result. As we move along and host other high profile meetings, we must keep in mind the importance of setting proper expectations and then delivering to that level, or beyond. It is a team effort to be successful in the meeting business and we should all be proud to be on Team Santa Feǃ

As recently as 2016 Southwest operated direct flights between ABQ and both Seattle and Portland. Many people in Seattle only fly Alaska (HQ in Seattle) or Delta (new hub in Seattle)
    • Met with a planner for Facebook. High interest due to the new data processing center in Los Lunas
