Michael Dominguez, senior vice president of hotel sales for MGM Resorts International, will be the keynote speaker at Questex Hospitality + Travel’s 10th anniversary Incentive Travel Exchange (ITE) event, to be held March 18-21 at The Delano Las Vegas at Mandalay Bay

He is responsible for leisure and group sales, including 42,000 hotel rooms and three million square feet of meeting space. “MGM Resorts International is one of the world’s leading global hospitality companies, operating a portfolio of destination resort brands including Bellagio, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay and The Mirage,” Danielle Cirami-Gillis, Questex’s vice president of event sales, said in a statement.
