• The Edgewater Announces New Leadership Team

    POSTED May 14, 2014

The Edgewater, which is reopening in August of this year after a $100-million renovation and expansion, recently announced the appointments of David Buss as director of rooms, Meredith Voller as director of sales and marketing and Sara Klemme as director of special events.

"With their extensive hospitality background, these talented individuals bring a wealth of knowledge and will assist in providing an unparalleled guest experience," said Ron Morin, general manager of The Edgewater. "Now with Chef Tom Welther on board too, I’m confident that the programmatic offerings that the team has planned will make The Edgewater a shining destination in the Midwest."

Buss began his career in hospitality as a bellman before moving all the way up to assistant hotel manager over seven years. He is a long-time resident of Madison and University of Wisconsin-Madison alum.

Voller brings more than a decade of experience in the hospitality industry. In her most recent role, she aided the opening of PUBLIC Chicago. She has also held management positions at various hotels including Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel and various Hotel Monacos.

Klemme previously worked in Green Bay, Wis. as director of shows & events at PMI Entertainment Group for five years where she planned and executed community events, consumer and business trade shows and outdoor festivals.

SCS Global Services (SCS), a third-party environmental and sustainability certification, auditing, testing, and standards development, has launched its Zero Waste Standard, “Zero Waste for Events.”


The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 


Anchorage is a city like none other—making it a popular choice for hosting meetings and events.

Through the tall windows of the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage, meeting attendees can gaze out toward Cook Inlet, which stretches all the way to the Gulf of Alaska and toward mountains—some snow-capped—representing several ranges. They may even see an eagle fly by or see one of the 1,500 moose that are said to roam Alaska’s largest city. It’s easy to see why it’s said that Anchorage is a city like none other in the United States.
