We want to give you the utmost assurance that all measures are in place for our Acquire or Be Acquired Conference to ensure the safety and well-being of all of our participants.

We Are Working Closely With the JW Marriott

Message from the JW Marriott
Since their founding 92 years ago, Marriott International has always placed an emphasis on the health and safety for their guests and associates. Their founder, J.W. Marriott, used to personally inspect kitchens and guest rooms for cleanliness during his hotel visits. A high standard of cleanliness is in their DNA.

The COVID-19 pandemic has required the JW Marriott to raise their demanding standards to an even higher level with new protocols for the current circumstances.  Below is an overview of the key components of Marriott’s Commitment to Cleanliness, and you can read more details about their plan here.

Marriott Global Cleanliness Council: Consisting of in-house and outside experts in food and water safety, hygiene and infection prevention and hotel operations, the council will work to develop a new generation of global hospitality cleanliness standards, norms and behaviors for their more than 7,300 properties around the globe.

New Cleaning Technologies: While their council develops its work, they have initiated plans to roll out enhanced technologies at their properties over the next few months, including electrostatic sprayers and the highest classification of disinfectants recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization to sanitize surfaces throughout hotels.

Cleaning Regimen Changes: When guests check into JW hotels over the next few months, they will notice a number of additions to the cleaning regimen designed to set an even higher standard of cleanliness for the hotels as well as modifications to associate-guest protocols developed to be consistent with recommended social distancing guidelines.

The steps they are taking on cleanliness and new hospitality norms are as much about the health and safety of associates as they are about the guests. By taking care of associates and following these new protocols – the hotel will be collectively taking care of our guests and the global community.
