Recipients recognized at Experient annual conference in Reno, NV
TWINSBURG, OH –Experient, the source for integrated meeting and event solutions, rewarded the outstanding performance of three of its supplier partners with the Supplier of the Year award during the Experient annual conference March 5–9 in Reno, Nevada.
Supplier of the Year awards recognize the best of the best of Experient partners each year and are an opportunity for Experient to honor those suppliers who demonstrate outstanding character and integrity, provide innovative ideas and solutions and maintain high quality customer service.
"These individuals are an incredibly strong and dedicated group of suppliers that add value to our organization by continually delivering exceptional results and superior performance," said Scott Durkin, Experient vice president, partner development. "They are our partners in the truest sense of the word, and share Experient's devotion to value and customer satisfaction that enables us to deliver on our commitment of high quality meetings and conferences. We're proud to have them as part of our team."
Experient honored Adam Michelin – national account executive, SmartSource Rentals; Michele Oberst – director, national accounts, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts; and Barry Tester – senior manager, conference management, The Venetian® Resort-Hotel-Casino.
Michelin was recognized for his ability to engage all areas of Experient to grow the SmartSource business. He stepped in and supported Experient with every aspect of its strategic events, and simply never says no when called on to assist. He is an outstanding Experient advocate, and continues to look for new ways for both organizations to partner and drive new business together.
Oberst was selected by Experient nominators for her drive and determination in thinking "outside the box" and for her ability to remain engaged with the account even after its close.
Tester has worked some of Experient's largest events held at The Venetian since 2006 and has been instrumental in supporting one of Experient's top clients. His customer service and forward thinking are outstanding, even when challenged with some of the most difficult events.
