FAIRFIELD — Christian Wentworth has joined the Fairfield Conference and Visitors Bureau as the new director of sales and marketing. This new role in the organization was a part of management district plan for the new tourism improvement district that was formed earlier this year.
Wentworth worked as director of sales for the Hilton Garden Inn. He also served as chairman of the board for the Fairfield Conference and Visitors Bureau.
“His knowledge and involvement with the CVB in the past will not only be a great asset, but will save a lot of time avoiding a replay of what we’ve done and accomplished in the past,” said Anand Patel, president and CEO or the Fairfield Conference and Visitors Bureau in a press release. ”I have had the pleasure of working with Christian as my board chair. I feel his experience with hotel and meetings sales in this market will give him great insight on which direction to focus our efforts.”
“After 35 years of working in the hospitality industry, I am excited to be given the opportunity to be the director of sales and marketing for the Fairfield Conference and Visitors Bureau,” Wentworth said in the press release. “I look forward to working with local businesses and community to make Fairfield a mark on the map as a destination.”
The Fairfield Conference and Visitors Bureau, a destination marketing organization, was created by a Tourism Improvement District consisting of 18 Fairfield hotels to market and promote tourism to the area, including overnight stays.
