• Reno Tahoe Partnership with PHG Consulting Grows International Tourism

    POSTED February 28, 2018

Reno Tahoe, a four-season resort destination, is seeking to expand its appeal as an international travel destination.

“Reno Tahoe has seen an upswing in visitation in recent years, and we want to build on that momentum,” said Phil DeLone, RSCVA president and CEO.

A recent partnership between RSCVA and PHG has enabled Reno Tahoe to better market itself to international audiences. 

Through the partnership, the Reno-Sparks Convention & Visitors Authority (RSCVA) promotes the convention and tourism business of Reno Tahoe, and Preferred Hospitality Group Consulting (PHG) markets the Reno Tahoe region to travel consumers, and offers consultation to hospitality industries.

DeLone noted that China, in particular, represents one of the fastest-growing travel segments in the world.

“Reno Tahoe has the tourism product that Chinese tourist desires and our team is excited to introduce the destination to this fast-growing, outbound market,” said Paul Cohen, vice president of PHG Consulting.

“This partnership with PHG Consulting is a great opportunity to tell travelers about our proximity to national parks, Western heritage, Lake Tahoe and the beautiful outdoors, as well as our booming nightlife and entertainment districts,” concluded DeLone.

Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole in Wyoming launched the summer season with a new member on its team, Emma Matilda. A 16-week-old Bernese mountain dog, Tillie, joined the Four Seasons team from Colorado in early May 5 and has been melting the hearts of guests, groups and staff ever since.


Food trucks may be mobile, but they aren’t going anywhere, since their popularity only seems to grow with each season. A New Jersey hotel is getting in on the fun! Along with over 18,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space, Embassy Suites by Hilton in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, offers the Grain & Cane “Gastro Truck” as a fun option for a mid-meeting break or post-event dining option.


The family-focused, Wisconsin-based Great Wolf Lodge opened its first resort in Wisconsin Dells in 1997. Over the next two decades, it slowly expanded with more properties around the Midwest, moving into the Northeast, South, West and Canada. And this summer, the greater Chicago area will get its first resort from the brand.
