From Ivanka’s Desk: Las Vegas
June finds Ivanka in the City of Lights (and with an exclusive promo code, you can head there, too!).
From Ivanka: June has been a month of interviews, panels and roundtables—and I love it. I’m often tapped to give advice to the next generation of #womenwhowork, and I always tend to say the same thing: Ask questions. Listen more than you speak. Surround yourself with people who know more than you and have different opinions to offer. Soak up their insights. I consider myself a fairly voracious reader. I wake up at 5:30 every morning to ensure I have time to go through the newspapers before my children get up. I listen to TED Talks while I get ready. I find informed opinions to be highly thought-provoking and useful, and when I can, I am more than happy to share my own. I’ve just returned from a conference in Las Vegas where I was invited to speak about the hospitality industry alongside Arianna Huffington and Randi Zuckerberg. There were nearly 2,500 event planners in attendance—many of whom are loyal clients of the Trump Hotel Collection—and approximately 80% of the audience was female. I met the team who planned the event backstage before I spoke, and was thrilled to discover that they were all wearing Ivanka Trump shoes. If you need confirmation that a heel is comfortable, ask an event planner who’s on her feet all day! It was a quick trip, but while I was there, I made sure to visit the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas. The spa is phenomenal and the food at the DJT restaurant is incredible—when I’m in town, I enjoy their Strauss organic Greek yogurt parfait for breakfast every morning. There’s no gambling on the property, which makes the hotel particularly attractive for families (there’s also no smoking permitted!). The hotel has unparalleled views of the strip and it’s a quick walk to the Fashion Show Mall—home to one of my favorite Nordstrom locations! Perhaps the most defining characteristic of the property, however, is the level of service. My team was recently in town for a meeting with our partners at Zappos and we stayed at the hotel. We were greeted with several welcome amenities, the best of which was an Instagram-style card that some of the women on staff had made in support of our #WomenWhoWork initiative. I hear about personal touches from this team all the time (keep sending me your amazing stories via social media—I read and appreciate them!). It’s a really incredible group of people and they never fail to deliver on exceptional service. If you’re traveling to Vegas this summer, I would love to invite you to stay at our property—and I’m excited to extend a 30% off code for the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas.
