S.T.A.R Awards - 2009
December 13, 2009

 

Hello Canada,
The first week of December we had the pleasure to host our top industry partners at our annual S.T.A.R Awards (Sandals Travel Agents Recognition Awards) in Turks and Caicos at the beautiful Beaches Turks and Caicos Resort Villages and Spa Resort. Sandals Resorts created The S.T.A.R Awards in 2002 as a way to recognize our top producing travel agencies and industry partners.
 This event is an event you do not want to miss, I personally consider it to be the “Grammys” of the travel industry.  Everything is carefully thought out and planned to make our guests feel like the stars that they are. Travel agents were also given the opportunity to attend a seminar hosted by our CEO, Adam Stewart and they were given first hand information about all the upcoming projects that are planned for 2010, agents also had the opportunity to preview all of the new Martha Stewart Wedding themes that will be available as of January 1, 2010.
Our agents also had the pleasure to mix and mingle with our top executives such as our Senior Vice President of Sales, Gary C. Sadler, our President, Kevin Froemming along with our CEO, Adam Stewart and of course an event wouldn’t be complete without our Chairman, Gordon “Butch” Stewart.  
This is an event you don’t want to miss so contact your local BDM and work on a plan that will ensure you will receive an invitation to this event next year! I hope to see you there!!
Wishing you all a great week!
Gina

Happy Holidays
December 18, 2009

 

Hello Canada,
 
I want to personally thank you all for your support in 2009! Our great country entered into a recession and we were able to end the year by not only achieving our goals but actually surpassing them! We recognize that this could not have been possible without all of you and we are truly grateful for your dedication, loyalty and support of Sandals, Beaches, Royal Plantation and Grand Pineapple Resorts!
 
In 2010 we have a lot of exciting things to look forward to: the launch of the Sandals Weddings By Martha Stewart, the opening of Sandals Emerald Bay in the Bahamas, introducing all butler suites at Royal Plantation Ocho Rios and the list goes on. We are constantly enhancing our brands and we have been and will continue to be the innovators in our industry.  That being said, I am confident that 2010 is going to be a year that we will all prosper!
 
On a personal note, I would like to wish you all a very Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!
