The Plaza Hotel & Casino announced that Shelly Brown will join the property’s group sales team as national sales manager.
With more than 25 years of hospitality experience including 15 years in sales, Brown comes to the Plaza Hotel & Casino from Austin, Texas, where she most recently worked for the Wyndham Garden Hotel Austin as the property’s director of sales. She brings to the Plaza extensive experience in executing sales programs that result in increasing occupancy and revenue.
As national sales manager, Brown joins the Plaza’s group sales team to support its efforts to attract new corporate and travel business to the iconic downtown property. Brown will develop proposals and negotiate group contracts including hotel rooms and meeting space for social and corporate markets. She will represent the Plaza at various hospitality and tourism related conferences and trade shows to further establish productive and professional relationships with corporate and travel accounts. Onsite at the Plaza, Brown will be a primary contact readily accessible to clients during their stay.
Originally from Texas, Brown traveled to Las Vegas multiple times a year and is excited to now call it home. Outside of work, Brown enjoys spending time with her husband and 13-year-old son especially as they explore Las Vegas history and culture. She is keenly excited for all the new sports teams as well as experiencing NASCAR live at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
