It was an honor for Landry & Kling to be recognized by Carnival with their 2017 Excellence Award for Corporate & Incentive Sales, especially in our 35th year. This was a celebration to remember, starting with the invitation to an awards celebration at the beautiful Ritz-Carlton Bachelor Gulch in Beaver Creek, Colorado (pictured above).

With our Carnival hosts: Adolfo Perez, VP – Sales & Trade Marketing; Jenny Halligan, Sr Director – Charters, Meetings & Incentives. Yes, those mountains behind us are real!

For the moment I stepped out of the car to applause from the entire Carnival team, they pulled out all the stops to host the 12 of us “beyond sea level”.  It was a privilege being with our colleagues from Carnival and also in the company of our fellow award winners – industry leaders all.

The Ritz-Carlton staff treated us all like royalty during our stay in their beautiful mountain resort. We thank Carnival for their generous hospitality, and for continuing to raise the bar in Partner appreciation.
