Many among the world leaders in business are members of yacht clubs and there is no question why. Yacht clubs offer extensive and highly valuable networking opportunities that are unattainable elsewhere. Read more
Making travel arrangements can be an absolute nightmare. Waiting on hold after your call being abruptly transferred half way across the world can seem like an endless tunnel with no escape. Unfortunately, many of the major airline services lack VIP phone line services, preventing you from properly making travel arrangements in an adequate amount of time. Bricks and mortar travel agencies are a dime a dozen and can be a menace and lack an overall accommodation to those with high luxury in mind. Fast paced businessmen and individuals will find that many of these agencies lack the capacity to work around your tight schedule, resulting in lost arrangements and improperly scheduled flights. “It goes beyond travel agencies because we just pretty much don’t say no to customers and their requests,” says John Noel, CEO of MyAssist, a personal concierge service specializing in traveling accommodations and needs. Personal concierge services specializing in travel accommodations and scheduling exclusively are rapidly growing and expanding. A simple Google search of such concierge services in your area should provide you with at least two pages of separate organic listings. Finding which concierge service is best for you may be easier than it seems. The best concierge services will answer their phone before the third ring and offer 24 hour contact availability.
For over fifty years, the Lago Mar Resort and Club has been the hallmark of Florida beach hotels and resorts. Perfectly situated on ocean-front property in Fort Lauderdale, the story of the Lago Mar, owned by the Banks Family, begins in 1959 when Mr. Sidney Banks of Virginia purchased the Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel which had 110 rooms, a hefty amount for the time. Since then, Mr. Banks has worked frivolously to create the family-friendly and luxurious atmosphere that is the reason for its consistent AAA Four Diamond rating. Today, the resort is owned and presided by Mr. Sidney Banks’ son, Mr. Walter Banks. To continue on the family legacy Walter Banks naturally followed in his father’s footsteps of creating the most luxurious resort in south Florida. Throughout the 80’s and 90’s, Mr. Banks went about removing old and decaying buildings from the premises and replacing them with new and beautiful buildings as well as expanding the boundaries of the resort as well.
