NORTHWIND, a provider of enterprise property management hotel software and reservation solutions for hospitality, announced it will structure its 2006 Maestro User’s Conference, “Hitting the High Notes with Maestro”, with a focus on helping clients increase productivity and property profitability by leveraging Maestro technology  and services to its fullest potential.

NORTHWIND’s 2006 Users’ Conference is scheduled for September 19 – 22 at the luxurious Founders Inn in Virginia Beach. 

Warren Dehan, NORTHWIND’s president of U.S. operations, said, “NORTHWIND is building on last year’s successful users’ conference by providing three full days of education sessions and high-energy breakouts to help our clients maximize their use of all of Maestro’s productivity tools.  We will also be kicking off the conference with our Maestro golf tournament; and so that all attendees can relax after work, we will be hosting nightly evening activities and entertainment during the conference.”   

Last year’s users’ conference was applauded by clients for its balance of in-depth system education, one-on-one workshops and networking events. Michael Polese, general manager of The Westminster Hotel, said, “Last year’s Maestro conference was excellent.  I see great value in sending my team members to training sessions for their specific job class.”   Helen Staton, Seaside Property’s revenue manager, said, “Each workshop was very beneficial.  I learned something valuable at every session.  It was also good to see all the exciting Maestro upgrades in the works, meet other users and discuss ways to maximize system utilization.”

The 2006 users’ conference will offer professional training sessions and breakout master classes in CRM, rate and yield management, group management, data security, retail POS and other Maestro applications.  Each session is designed to give users the information they need to utilize every aspect of their hospitality system, whether they represent a chain of resorts or a single independent property.  “The Maestro Users’ Conference is NORTHWIND’s way of adding value for clients by providing ways to increase system knowledge, build new skills and leverage their systems and our value-added client services as much as possible to improve their businesses,” said Warren Dehan.
