Wes Guidry: Someone To Watch


Wes Guidry, VVA’s longtime coordinator of National Meetings and Special Events, has been selected a "eeting Professional To Watch in 2003" by a panel of experts selected by ConventionSouth magazine. Wes, the man in charge of the minute-to-minute activities at VVA’s National Conventions and Leadership Conferences, lives in Lake Charles, Louisiana. He was cited by ConventionSouth for his "outstanding professionalism, creativity, and dedication to the meetings and convention industry." He was the subject of a profile in the magazine’s December 2002 issue.

"This honor sounds like I’m doing something special that others should emulate," Guidry said. "But to me what I’m doing is common sense. Instead of considering the hotel to be the enemy, I try to develop a friendship and rapport and built a good working relationship. That way, I can tell them what we need and they can tell me what they can do."

"Wes has been a very valuable asset to VVA," noted VVA President Tom Corey. "This award shows that meeting professionals know what we do, that Wes is great at what he does, which is to make our Conventions and Leadership Conferences run smoothly and efficiently. It’s a Herculean job and Wes comes through for VVA time after time."
