NYIT's Old Westbury Chapter of the Society of Hosteurs was given the exciting opportunity to experience a LEEDS-certified green hotel on April 24.
The site visit to Viana Hotel and Spa on Brush Hollow Road in Westbury was led by James Henry Dunne, M.A., J.D., of the School of Managment, along with NYIT hospitality alumna and Corporate Sales Manager Alicia Montefusco, Viana General Manager Takir Rafiq, and Assistant Manager Handi Shindi.
The hotel executives graciously provided a tour of the property, along with a comprehensive review of how to attain the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design property certification. The tour was followed by a board room presentation by Montefusco on corporate sales techniques and the application of sales technology.
