White Lodging is pleased to announce the beginning of a new era of conventions coming to the City of Austin, with the first convention booked at the city's new JW Marriott Austin.
The first contract for the JW Marriott Austin, scheduled to begin construction June 1, was recently signed for the annual meeting of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners Nov. 6-12, 2015. The booking of more than 2,500 rooms signals the beginning of a new level for conventions in Austin.
The hotel is already attracting top talent to ensure its success.
With more than 24 years of hospitality experience, Jay Spurr will lead the hotel's sales and marketing team as the Director of Sales and Marketing for the JW Marriott Austin. Spurr left his position as the Director of Sales and Marketing of the Chicago Marriott Magnificent Mile to join the hotel's team.
