Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea Adds Another Innovative Guest Service — Complete Suite Experience” Includes Complimentary Double Round-Trip Car Service


Wailea, Maui HI (PRWEB) August 14, 2014

“Whatever is new, whatever is next” must be the mantra at Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea. Once again, the resort is on Travel + Leisure’s 2014 World’s Best Hotels list and was also just named the #1 Hawaiian resort by American Airlines’ Celebrated Living Platinum list.

“Year after year, travelers and editorial boards alike have picked us as their top choice,” says Mark Simon, the resort’s marketing director. His talented and high-energy team possesses a willingness to think creatively and try new ideas that transform wonderful vacations to Maui into truly memorable experiences. In this day of ultra luxurious amenities, décor, and service, these are some of the innovative ideas that have Four Seasons Resort Maui guests coming back for more:

Double Round-Trips: ‘Complete Suite’ guests enjoy complimentary round trip transportation from home to local airport via Uber Black Car service, and round trip transportation in a private luxury SUV or eco-friendly Tesla from Maui’s airport to the resort.

Zoom Zoom:

Guests at the resort can order a vintage (replica) Porsche roadster. Drop the top and tour the island’s diverse terrain—everywhere from the peak of Haleakala to the sands of Maui’s beautiful beaches.

Wedding Island Bliss:

Brides and grooms want their day to be “their day.” Recognizing every wedding is as unique as the couple themselves, the resort hosts just one wedding on the property in Maui per day, offering several breathtaking wedding venues—with the azure Pacific Ocean serving as backdrop. From the ceremony to the reception, the resort exclusively dedicates itself to one bridal party and guests.

Weightless in Maui:

Guests can experience the tranquility of floating in the ocean while enjoying the therapeutic and nurturing benefits of Wai Vari®, a new treatment created by one of the resort’s spa massage therapists. The award-winning spa in Maui also has its own chiropractor on staff, Dr. Mark Emerson, who performs the unique I-Lipo treatment and specializes in clinical nutrition and natural treatment methods.

In Style:

Exclusive designer partnerships and appearances with designers James Perse and Sol Angeles, trunk shows, and personal styling and shopping appointments are just some of the offerings from the resort’s three contemporary and luxury shopping boutiques specializing in curated brands.

Say Aloha, Please:

What’s better than a selfie? At Four Seasons Resort Maui, capturing happy moments for guests is yet another way for guests to recall and share their vacation experience. This is job one for Scott Miles, the resort’s passionate and original photo ambassador who uses guests’ cameras to personalize individual and group shots—even the spectacular sunset photos for which the resort is known. This service is complimentary.

Learn from World Class Pro’s:

Guests follow their passions – tennis, windsurfing, cycling, and more – in the resort’s Unforgettable Events series.

Namaste:

There is no better way than to start the day practicing yoga on the sand. Or is there? How about the Resort’s newest fitness class—Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) Yoga— to improve flexibility, balance, and strength while taking in the idyllic Maui setting from a different vantage point. It is just one of many water sports activities held each day.

Kindles and Tours and Cabanas, oh boy!

The list of complimentary services is long because the resort’s staff anticipates the needs of its diverse guests. Kindles at the Serenity Pool, a garden tour led by Kevin Gavagan ending with his singing native Hawaiian songs on his ukulele, and a complimentary cabana where spa treatments can be delivered on the spot, are just a few of the resort’s services.

“Four Seasons guests are sophisticated travelers. They are people who are often innovators in their own professions and personal lives. “We recognize our guests as trendsetters with a keen appreciation and appetite for embracing new ideas. It is our job to create a menu of experiences that are exclusive to our resort,” says Simon.

Growing Globally During the Holidays: TrueShip Announces Partnership with APC Logistics to Offer Discount International Shipping Options


(PRWEB) August 21, 2014

TrueShip shipping software (http://www.trueship.com) has announced that they have partnered with APC Postal Logistics (http://www.apc-pli.com) to offer their parcelConnect service to users of ReadyShipper shipping software. The addition of APC Postal Logistics enables TrueShip to now connect its user base with the discounted international shipping rates that are featured in the popular parcelConnect service.

The APC Postal Logistics parcelConnect service combines with ReadyShipper – and the required Endicia and APC Postal Logistics accounts – to connect users to the best discounts on international shipping. Users can now save as much as 50% off the standard international shipping rates by utilizing these services.

Billions of packages are shipped overseas each year from the U.S., delivered by major carriers that charge premium international postage rates. The goal of TrueShip partnering with APC Postal Logistics is to enable users of ReadyShipper shipping software with a means to offer their customers discounted international shipping options at time of checkout, intended to help e-retailers attract more international orders and to increase sales volumes.

Ecommerce stores lose an estimated $ 16 billion per year due to shopping cart abandonment rates. According to recent studies, 65% of all shoppers that visit an online store will abandon their shopping cart. A contributing factor is the cost of shipping, according to numerous reports, a key reason why 54% of shoppers abandon their carts online. One study found that 73% of respondents stated that shipping prices were a key element in them making a purchase or abandoning their shopping cart. These numbers represent a good reason why e-retailers should be progressive in their approach to offering discount shipping options for both domestic and international online shoppers.

APC Postal Logistics simplifies the process of sending international shipments by providing solutions for international address formats, customs, duties and taxes, delivery times, and also by managing the expectations of international recipients. New users of ReadyShipper qualify for a complementary APC Postal Logistics account after being qualified over the phone by APC Postal Logistics.

“We are thrilled to partner with APC Postal Logistics,” stated Daniel Koernke, President of Sales at TrueShip. “This partnership gives TrueShip users a fantastic new option to save lots of money on their international shipments, and makes the process of creating their labels and documentation much easier. It addresses a serious pain point for many online sellers, and allows all TrueShip users to expand globally with confidence.”

TrueShip will be hosting a free online webinar on Wed, August 27, 2014, at 1pm PST to provide a look at how ecommerce businesses can simplify their international shipping and reduce their international shipping costs by up to 50%. Interested parties can sign-up to attend the free webinar by visiting: http://www.trueship.com/demo-times.

Celebrating the Old South and New South with a High-End Corporate Event


Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 03, 2014

With three environments taking guests from day to night and outdoors to indoors, WM Events’ latest corporate affair took place in a massive post-Civil War building in downtown Atlanta. Juxtaposing Old Southern charm with New Southern metropolitanism, the event welcomed more than a thousand guests who enjoyed three styles of barbecue, mint juleps and cigar rollers on the porch; a sultry indoor jazz club and a trendy hip hop dance party beneath dynamic hoop chandeliers. Offering enough entertainment and excitement for nearly five hours, the event combined the best of history and modernism to highlight the diversity that today comprises a Southern city.

A jazz quintet, costumed Southern greeters and pimento flavored popcorn welcomed guests to this modern Southern affair at Georgia Freight Depot. The venue’s 90-foot porch and outdoor space, accented with vintage Southern styling, provided the first stop for guests. Partygoers sampled Texas Brisket, Carolina Pork and Memphis Chicken provided by caterer Affairs to Remember, then used clothespin ballots to vote on their favorite. Completing the party’s homage to backyard Southern cuisine, Jim N’ Nicks provided a whole pig on the pit. WM Events created a traditional Southern porch atmosphere with rocking chairs, romantic sheer drapery and Mason jar candle-lined railings for this unique, high-end corporate event. The band Love Cannon played pop hits from the 1980s in bluegrass style.

A customized living moss wall in the venue’s front lobby transformed the space from a backyard barbecue into a Southern garden party. Costumed train conductors welcomed guests aboard for this extravagant affair. Elaborate drapery, comfortable traditional-style lounge groupings, and an over-the-top cherry blossom floral arrangement created a sleek lounge. Sexy gold and blue lighting set the stage for an intimate performance from iconic blues singer Francine Reed.

Stepping through to the interior Freight Room, guests experienced a transformation from romantic Southern styling to a chic modern vibe. As guests entered the main room, they were greeted with an 18-foot cherry laurel tree complete with swinging trapeze artists. The WM Events team fashioned the tree with a cardboard tube base and real cherry laurel branches decorated with lanterns. Moving through the room, the décor became cleaner and more modern. Sleek white and chrome furniture, glowing bars and food stations and 8-foot tall DJ risers created a hip Southern look. Guests were amazed as a 25-person flash mob erupted in the party, dancing to Quad City DJ’s “C’mon ‘N Ride It.” Immediately following the dance, guests got a second surprise as desserts descended from the ceiling on two 20 ft. trusses. A DJ scratch-off and high-energy performance from Party Nation kept guests dancing well into the evening.

Party extras included a shabby chic photo booth made with wood pallets and magnolia vines and blossoms. In addition to the barbecue taste-off and aerial desserts, guests enjoyed Southern fare gone contemporary like Shrimp and Grits, Lobster Mac n’ Cheese and Salmon Succotash. This unique corporate event was a true celebration of Atlanta.

Hager Hall Conference & Event Center Chooses NE Time Systems

Lancaster, PA (PRWEB) August 16, 2014

Hager Hall Conference & Event Center in Hagerstown, MD is a magnificent facility and the largest conference center in the Quad-State area. With 17,000 square feet of meeting space and an occupancy capacity of over 4,000 people, Hager Hall is in a league of its own. With an inviting lobby and elegant Grand Ballroom, the venue is perfect for any occasion, including meetings, seminars, conferences, wedding receptions, concerts, social events, and more. When Hager Hall realized the need to effectively track their employees’ time and attendance and monitor and control event labor costs, they chose NE Time Systems.

According to Samelia Quinn, Office Manager at Hager Hall, the NE Time Systems solution has improved operations in a number of ways. Firstly, utilizing biometric fingerprint technology has completely eliminated the possibility of “buddy punching” (employees punching for one another) and falsified records.

When asked about the NT450-FP Push Technology Smart Time Clock Kiosk, Ms. Quinn elaborates, “The clock is user-friendly and easy to use. The interface is very clear, and it welcomes our employees by name.”

Ms. Quinn adds, “Employees now punch in under their own department and under their own event. Calculating the costs for each event used to take me about four hours each pay period. Now, it is just five seconds to run a report!” She continues, “Tracking events has completely changed how I do things, saving me a ton of time. The software is easy to navigate, and I love that I can create my own reports!”

Some of Ms. Quinn’s other favorite features are the Supervisor Dashboard and the In/Out Board. With access to real-time information, Hager Hall can now better monitor their staffing levels halfway through the week, allowing them to manage employee hours. The system has also saved managers time preparing timesheets for payroll.

Another benefit of implementing the NE Time Systems solution is billing based on monthly active employees. Because Hager Hall’s employment numbers fluctuate each month, due to the nature of the industry, Ms. Quinn appreciates that the company is only charged for the number of active employees.

What Ms. Quinn finds most compelling about the software is “the simplicity of how to use it. I really, really like it. I feel like I have more control over the output.”

Speaking of the NE Time Systems team, Ms. Quinn says, “You guys are great! Everyone I have spoken with has made me feel like I am the only person they have to talk with.” NE Time Systems is excited to have Hager Hall Conference & Event Center as a client, and hopes to continue providing services to help them to do more of what they do best.

Silvia Levenson Explores A Subject To Avoid With Glass Sculptures and Photographs in Her Second Solo Exhibit at David Richard Gallery August 29, 2014


Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) August 21, 2014

David Richard Gallery will present the newest body of work by Silvia Levenson that explores domestic violence against women. She explores this difficult subject using installations, glass sculptures and lenticular photographs in her second solo exhibition with the gallery. “A Subject To Avoid” will be presented August 29 through October 11, 2014 with an opening reception with the artist on Friday, August 29 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. A fully illustrated on-line catalogue will accompany the exhibition. The gallery is located at 544 South Guadalupe Street, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501, phone 505-983-9555 in the Santa Fe Railyard Arts District.

Silvia Levenson uses objects and images to say what is generally not said aloud, either because the subject of domestic violence is considered taboo or because of the potential shame and fear of retribution or harm to the accuser. She explores this unspeakable space that is situated between what can be seen or guessed by observers. The exhibition consists of installations, objects made in glass, photos and lenticular prints meant to explore feelings and actions that most people prefer to avoid. She explores this troubling situation in different ways. Family is usually considered a safe haven and a sanctuary, while there is evidence that shows it can also be a very dangerous place for women. Often, the aggressors against women are known by their victims and are family members who were once loved by the women and girls they harm. Objects in Levenson’s exhibition, such as “Until Death Do Us Part”—a beautiful wedding cake and symbol of matrimony is empty and fragile with a pink hand grenade on top—and “Body of Evidence”—a wall installation of kiln-formed glass and found objects frequently used by men to cause harm to females—underscores this condition. In the photos and lenticular prints, Levenson explores the dynamics and tensions in relationships between couples, focusing on the differences between what is really felt and what is actually said. Since most people wish to fit into the idealized and idolized picture of “happily ever after”, they often pretend that things are OK even if they are not. They do not want to confront the real issues, their true feelings or those who they love. Frequently, they worry too much about the other person’s feelings or they simply fear them. That is why it is “A Subject To Avoid”.

Silvia Levenson was born in Buenos Aires and currently lives and works in Italy. She is an international artist and has had more than 40 solo exhibitions in Venice, Rome, Milan, Amsterdam, Lyon, Buenos Aires, Barcelona, Berlin, Portland and San Francisco, among other cities, and her work has been included in numerous group exhibitions. Levenson’s art can be found in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts (Houston, TX), New Mexico Museum of Art (Santa Fe), Corning Museum (Corning, NY), Musée du Verre (Sars Poteries, France), Tikanoja Art Museum (Vassa, Finland), Glasmuseum Ebeltoft (Denmark), Ernsting Glass Collection (Coestfeld, Germany), Museo Leon Rigaulleau (Argentina) and Museo del Vetro (Altare, Italy) among others.

David Richard Gallery, a contemporary art gallery in Santa Fe, specializes in post-war abstract art including Abstract Expressionism, Color Field, geometric and hard-edge painting, Op Art, Pop Art, Minimalism, Feminism and Conceptualism in a variety of media. Featuring both historic and contemporary artwork, the gallery represents many established artists who were part of important art historical movements and tendencies that occurred during the 1950s through the 1980s on both the east and west coasts. The gallery also represents artist estates, emerging artists and offers secondary market works.
