The Boston Convention and Marketing
Center has hired a housing director to serve as a liaison between
meeting planners and the city's hotel community. Judy Sheng, a
former sales executive at both Westin and Hyatt, will be Boston's
first director of citywide room blocks and hotel relations, and
will consult with planners to facilitate site inspections, develop
hotel packages and secure room blocks. The BCMC is the sales
division of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority.
