The Saratoga Convention & Tourism Bureau
announced that Tom Ellis has joined the staff as
destination wedding and social market specialist.
Ellis is a seasoned hospitality professional
with 20 years of experience in luxury hotels,
nightclubs, restaurants and world class events,
mainly in the New York City area market, bureau
officials said. His attention to detail and creativity
has garnered him the respect of industry peers
and established a following with both social and
corporate clients in the worlds of business, politics,
and entertainment, they said.
“We are thrilled to welcome Tom to Saratoga and to the Convention & Tourism Bureau team”, said bureau President Todd Garofano. “The destination wedding market is a lucrative year-round segment which Saratoga is perfectly positioned for. Brides and grooms have been choosing Saratoga for their special events for years.
“With the tremendous growth we have seen as a destination, we have barely scratched the surface for this sought after business. Tom’s experience in this industry and in one of our key feeder markets, NYC, will provide immediate benefit.”
To accommodate the need for additional staff space, the bureau moved upstairs to new office space at its current address. It is now located in Suite 301 at 60 Railroad Place, Saratoga Springs. An open house is being planned.
