When Acuity Sports makes decisions to conduct site visits, we have to consider the costs in terms of company dollars and times, but we choose to continually make the investment because site visits are about more than just visiting the actual location, but it also about making relationships in and around the venue.
Last week, during a routine site visit to JW Marriott Grande Lakes In Orlando, we made the connection of a lifetime. We had the opportunity to meet John Willard “Bill” Marriott, Jr., the Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board of Marriott International and Son of JW Marriott the founder. This was a special day for our team, as we admire the Marriott’s brand excellence and consistency. This one connection was great confirmation for us that this standard practice of site visits are a priceless benefit for our business, our current clients and our prospective clients.
