KRISTIN'S STORY

My travels through hospitality.

Biography

Once, my job was to maximize revenue for hotels.

I launched my career in the hospitality industry at the Westin, St. John in the U.S. Virgin Island in 1999. For more than a decade I worked at hotels in Arizona and across Hawaii.

Since I began working for HPN Global in 2011, I’ve built my reputation on helping clients navigate unforeseen changes, get the best event for their budgets, and spend fewer hours doing so.

I’m all about empowering meeting professionals, saving them time, helping their organizations to save money, and offering my industry insight to help take their program to the next level.

Today, my job is to leverage the knowledge and insight I gained working in hotels to benefit my clients.

TESTIMONIALS

Most of my new business comes via referrals, and I'm proud to share some recent client comments.
I have been a successful meeting planner for almost 30 years and didn't think I needed the services of a third party in venue selection until I had the opportunity to work with Kristin Vines. With her expert navigation of the negotiation process, true expertise on the hotel side, and thorough understanding of our conference needs, she helped us select venues that keep our annual conference vibrant and growing.

She is there every step of the way to ensure a smooth process, from site selection to execution of event and even after. Her expertise in site selection and contract negotiation has been instrumental in our meetings and events success, from our annual large international incentive program down to our smaller domestic regional meetings.
