Marriotts new vision for Sheraton already has investors onboard

first_img Share BETHESDA, MD – Ever since the Starwood merger in 2016, the revitalization of the Sheraton brand has been a “top priority” for Marriott International. Now, the brand is one step closer to a full transformation following a special presentation to owners and investors earlier this week.While at the NYU International Hospitality Industry Investment Conference in New York, Marriott presented the its brand strategy as well as its signature focus on guest experience, hotel operations and design philosophy. A 4,200 square-foot vignette at the Conference has brought Marriott’s vision to life, allowing investors to experience the transformation plans firsthand.The results have already created big buzz in the industry, with owners committing an estimated half a billion dollars in renovations of hotels across the U.S. As of now, 25% of Sheraton hotels globally have committed to renovations, with some already underway.“We knew that the way to restore this incredible brand was focus and collaboration with our hotel owners,” said Arne Sorenson, President and CEO of Marriott International. “We wanted to build on Sheraton’s rich legacy of sitting at the heart of communities across the globe, but also to create a differentiated positioning and compelling proposition for our owners. With our Sheraton transformation plan, we’ve put together all of the pieces of the equation to work cooperatively with our owners to set this iconic brand on a new, disciplined and successful path. We are ready, our vision is clear and the energy is robust for Sheraton.”More news:  Venice to ban cruise ships from city centre starting next monthTina Edmundson, Global Brand Officer, Marriott International added: “Marriott International is well positioned to deliver a comprehensive strategy for Sheraton’s brand transformation and we already have great momentum. This is the first time in years that the brand has been above competitive benchmark in both rate and occupancy. We have improved brand standards, increased group bookings, and have ramped up our business engine over the last year as a first step in a multi-phase, multi-year plan, leveraging our experience in revitalizing lodging brands.”Since joining Marriott International as part of the acquisition of Starwood Hotels and Resorts in September 2016, Sheraton has exited 6,000 rooms with another 2,000 expected to depart by the end of the year. During the same period, 5,000 rooms have been signed to the portfolio. Intent to recommend for the brand has already increased 2 points year-over-year and market share has grown for the first time in years.System-wide, Sheraton generates US$9.2 billion in property revenue globally. Sheraton’s portfolio currently consists of nearly 450 open hotels with 80 additional projects in the pipeline in 72 countries and territories. By 2020, the brand’s footprint is expected to expand to 90 countries.

Though this could potentially set up a legal battle with the EU, the publication added.The ban would be in conflict with EU law as glyphosate is cleared for use in the bloc until December 2022.Still, many political leaders think the herbicide’s risks are too great to ignore.”The scientific evidence for the plant poison’s carcinogenic effect is increasing.

That year, he rushed for 1,239 yards and received 879 more. Johnson set an NFL record with at least 100 scrimmage yards in the first 15 games of a season before his finale was cut short due to an sprained MCL.The running back recovered from that injury before hurting his wrist Week 1 of last year, which required surgery and ended his season.As a top overall fantasy pick by many fans heading into 2017, that pushed Johnson right into the heat of social media — and real life — criticism.“I’m telling you, I’ll literally get Rams fans, I’ll get 49ers, Seattle fans: ‘Man, you got to get, I’m telling you, three touchdowns, 150 yards, you guys got to lose by one. I just need you to do this but you still need to lose,’” Johnson said. “People, I think they feel more involved now.“I’ll be running off the field or something, or out and about, and they’ll tell me stuff that — I have to kind of look back and see who it is talking about it because you would think they’re the GM or something (because of) the stuff they would say: how many touches you had, how many yards, how many catches.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 2 Comments   Share   Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen (3) hands the ball off to Cardinals running back David Johnson, right, during an NFL football practice Monday, Aug. 13, 2018, in Glendale, Ariz.

Tribalism is showing up in many ways Even though critics balk at Trump’s claims that the midterms were a “tremendous success” there’s data to support that there’s not a single district Trump won by a

win the electoral college in 2020 even if he lost the popular vote – exactly what happened in 2016 The downside: The largest class of freshman voters ever in America’s history leaned Democratic – that too in a midterm election which is usually low turnout More people than in the 1990s are saying that the president was a factor in how they voted Here’s the break up this year: Twenty six per cent of those polled said they voted for Donald Trump 38 percent said their vote was against Donald Trump and a third said Trump was not a factor Where Hillary Clinton won Dems did well The much hyped “blue wave” did not happen To be more precise Democrats won in suburban ‘Whole Foods’ areas they won in places where Hillary had won but if there was a distinct red colouring the blue wave did not extend very far in those battlegrounds While the Democrats are trying to claw back some sense of a unified blue identity the red states are only hardening around Trumpism If reluctant ‘Republicans in name

close to bringing criminal charges against two of the world’s biggest biggest banks Credit Suisse and BNP Paribas preparing the way for what could be the first guilty plea from a major bank in decades The New York Times citing anonymous sources reported that prosecutors have outlined plans to charge French bank BNP Paribas for doing business with countries that are on the United States’ sanctions list such as Sudan A federal investigation into Credit Suisse for offering tax shelters to Americans could also yield a guilty plea The new focus on bringing criminal charges against major banks bucks a regulatory trend in Wall Street whose largest institutions have been largely immune to criminal prosecutions over wrongdoing for two decades The planned prosecutions against BNP Paribas and Credit Suisse could help mollify public outrage over banks’ apparent immunity to criminal charges BNP Paribas said Wednesday that it may end up paying much more than the $11 billion it has set aside for alleged US sanctions violations in the face of planned criminal charges the Wall Street Journal reported The French bank which has a huge investment arm in the United States allegedly did business with countries including Iran Sudan and Cuba In the past prosecutors have hesitated to bring criminal charges against major banks for fear of putting them out of business and damaging the economy But prosecutors have met with regulators to discuss strategies to criminally punish banks like BNP and Credit Suisse and at the same time make sure their charters aren’t revoked Past investigations into major Wall Street banks like JPMorgan for its ties with Bernie Madoff’s massive fraud scam and HSBC accused of “stunning failures” in preventing money laundering have yielded multibillion-dollar fines

Senator Heineken Lokpobiri (Bayelsa West)said “the gamut of this amendment is to bring the practice of industrial action in trade unionism in line with global best practices as obtainable in Great Britain USA Canada France Belgium South Africa etc” Lokpobiri’s bill caused uproar Senate President David Mark suspended debate of the bill Some Senators saw Mark’s intervention as a soft landing for the sponsor of the seemingly unpopular “Bill for an Act to further amend the Trade Union Act CapT14 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria 2004 as amended 2005 to make provisions for ballot as a requirement before any action taken by trade unions and for other matter connected therewith 2012” “The requirement of agreement on the part of a simple majority of the members of a union makes it imperative for a ballot as contained in this proposed amendment This amendment accordingly provides that an act done by a trade union to induce a person to take part in industrial action should have the support of a ballot For any strike to see the light of the day it should enjoy the well-intentioned support of members of the unions” he said Senators Ayogu Eze (PDP Enugu) Bassey Otu (PDP Cross River South) and Ita Enang (PDP Akwa Ibom North East) described the bill as necessary in view of the perceived politicization of labour-related issues in the country saying it was meant to sanitize the processes of industrial action rather than prevent workers from going on strike Opposing the bill Senators Smart Adeyemi (PDP Kogi West) James Manager (PDP Delta South) Olufemi Lanlehin (ACN Oyo South) Joshua Dariye (LP Plateau Central) and Chris Ngige (ACN Anambra) called for the withdrawal of the bill arguing that it would deprive the workers of their right to oppose any unpopular government policies “Trade unions protect their members’ interests and they have their own constitutions which stipulate the processes of industrial actions Labour leaders often consult members and other stakeholders before calling for any strike” Adeyemi said The chairman of the Senate Committee on Labour Senator Wilson Ake (PDP Rivers West) said the bill was aimed at streamlining the processes of strike suggesting that it be subjected to a public hearing; while Senator Ahmed Makarfi (PDP Kaduna North) who described the bill as ill-timed said it would be misunderstood Senate President David Mark said since the bill was mainly looking at the processes of calling for strike the debate should be taken to a logical conclusion rather than withdraw the bill The bill which failed to pass a second reading was therefore deferred to another legislative day Speaking on the matter Acting General Secretary of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Comrade Owei Lakemfa described the lawmakers as idle people who want to divert the attention of Nigerians from their many failures “These are known reactionary positions by employers and big business to deprive workers of their rights The constitution of Nigeria forbids forced labour The worker has the right to work and the right to refuse to work In other words to strike is a fundamental human right of workers which cannot be abridged by any human being or any law “They should also know that if workers must ballot nationwide to go on strike they also have a right to ballot nationwide before they call off the strike because if you say the workers should go on ballot to go on strike then the workers have a right to ballot to call off strike” he said He said that “politicians should find better things to do than divert attention

not-quite-there-yet history of virtual reality A number of companies from Facebook and Samsung to Google and Microsoft are making significant pushes into the technology which has been a mainstay of science fiction for decades but has largely failed to materialize as a viable consumer product The latest piece of kit the HTC Vive announced this weekend is the product of a collaboration between the Taiwanese phone giant and Valve the purveyor of the most important software distribution platform on the PC Steam Virtual reality or VR has a long tortured history Until three years ago the technology was more or less moribund Then Palmer Luckey (now 22) reignited interest with a series of prototypes for a new device called the Oculus Rift which improved significantly on the old technology by taking advantage of advances in components for phones His company Oculus VR was acquired by Facebook last year for $2 billion Most of Oculus advances which are now being adopted or emulated by the likes of Sony and Samsung are in how images are displayed to users wearing the headset Long story short a VR system has to display two sets of imagesone for each eyeat very fast rates or the viewer will get nauseous But the HTC Vive which the companies say will be available later this year solves the next most vexing problems: once a viewer is seeing 3D space how do they maneuver and manipulate the environment around them Aside from content that is compatible with VR these are the biggest outstanding questions Once youre there what can you do and how do you do it Early development kits for the Oculus employ a standard console controller to move around but that can be disorienting Sonys Morpheus prototype for the Playstation4 uses a set of controllers that look like ice cream cones with lightbulbs on top with similar results And Microsofts recently unveiled HoloLens which projects images onto the real world uses hand gestures and arm motions Its still unclear which approach will win out HTC says its system will come with a base station that can track a users movements in 3D space The company also hinted at a specific controller perhaps a set of gloves to enable users to manipulate virtual objects Details are still scant but this could solve the problems of mobility in a simulated 3D environment If Valve and HTC have indeed managed to do that virtual reality may
