Luxury Hotelier garners two big awards

I'm here in Kansas City, home of fountains, jazz and bar-b-que, at the annual National Editorial Conference for ASBPE, the professional society for trade magazine editors. As part of the conference, the National Awards Banquet was held just hours ago. I'm proud to announce that out of more than 2,300 entries, our own Luxury Hotelier brought home two Gold awards, one in the editorial category and one in the design category:

* Gold in the New Publication category
* Gold in the Contents Page or Pages category

At right is myself, along with current ASBPE National Vice President, Amy Fischbach.

Congratulations to our whole staff ... those who worked so hard in 2007 to launch this amazing publication, as well as those who continue to work at it each issue—to keep up our high standards and provide luxury hotel owners and operators the quality information they want in a very attractive, readable package.
