Here's a name to remember when planning events in New York City: Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has added Mario Busquets to its sales force. As the newly appointed Director of Sales for all New York City Kimpton hotels, Busquets will oversee all sales activity for the Eventi, Ink48, 70 Park Avenue and The Muse.
 
Busquets is based out of The Muse hotel and will lead strategic direction, management and top-line revenues for the four properties. He will also be responsible for the business development of groups, banquets and city-wide conferences in both domestic and international markets.
 
“Mario joins our Kimpton team in New York City with an impressive hospitality and sales experience background in the luxury boutique sector,” said Shannon Spillett, Director, NYC Marketing and Development Marketing, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. "As Kimpton continues to enhance its global group efforts with the recent launch of Kimpton Instant Meetings, I believe Mario will bring a fresh perspective and develop exciting, revenue-generating ideas to support the goals of the city."
 
Before joining Kimpton, Busquets spent more than 20 years in the hospitality industry both in the U.S. and abroad.
