• 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.

Lumière with Inspirato in partnership with Telluride Ski & Golf announced a new collection of small group experiences, the Forum Retreat Packages.


Vdara Hotel & Spa in Las Vegas has opened the Vdara Club Lounge, a private space that allows guests a retreat from the buzz of Vegas night life.

“Vdara Club Lounge is designed to enhance our guests’ travel experiences,” says General Manager Mary Giuliano. “The intimate setting allows us to deliver our award-winning hospitality with a more personalized approach.”


Set to open in December 2020, the Circa Resort & Casino is a gaming resort that will bring a new energy to downtown. The venture will be the first ground-up resort in the area since 1980 and is the brainchild of brothers and developers Derek and Greg Stevens.

“There is a lot of unmet demand for fun in Las Vegas,” says Derek. “At Circa, our goal is to create a destination resort in a historic part of the city, while showing guests the time of their lives.”
