A MESSAGE FROM ERIC GAVIN
CHIEF SALES OFFICER | BENCHMARK, A GLOBAL HOSPITALITY COMPANY
While these unprecedented times have forced us apart, we remain engaged and united in a common goal: to bring people together for the purpose of collaboration, ideation, and celebration. It is you, our valued planners, clients, and partners who have supported Benchmark’s growth over the years and we take great pride in these relationships. While there remain many unknowns, we are all aligned in the belief that we are stronger together; and together we will overcome.
As we begin to look ahead to brighter days, I am encouraged by the resolve of our teams, our partners, and our industry. It is that same resolve that has guided our efforts in developing a plan of action to help accelerate the recovery efforts for us all. A plan to aid you in converting business in the short term, while also financially supporting your ability to advance future opportunities.
Additionally, in speaking with many of you, we have developed new and relevant best practices that are mindful of your concerns surrounding health and safety at future meetings and events. These best practices address a broad range of touch points to include the meeting environment, food and beverage presentation and preparation, team building and event management throughout our portfolio.
The business of meetings is always evolving and through our combined ingenuity and continued alliance we will move forward together. We are hopeful you will choose Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort for your future meetings and events.
